Mondays SUCK but only if you think they Suck.

I bet every Sunday for a very long time you have said "I hate Mondays" and guess what youre gonna hate Mondays. The words we think and say are like programme codes for a computer. Whatever you programme the computer to do is how it will function and we are just the same.

SO.

If you tell yourself you hate Mondays you are going to hate Mondays. You will wake up dreading the day. You wont feel positive and energised, you wont be has happy and friendly as you could be. You will probably drink more coffee to put a spring in your step, you will no doubt spend much of the day complaining about the fact that it's Monday and the weekend was over far too quickly (even though you probably did nothing at the weekend), you will resent being at work and all of this makes you feel lousy, not to mention that it makes the person you are complaining to feel worse about their Monday than they already did. In reality Monday is no different to Tuesday except for how you think of it.

Flip the Script. Find a way to enjoy Mondays, Start telling yourself that Mondays are great because.................. (fill in the blanks). I know some of you are protesting already saying "I cant think of anything". But for many people, especially those that hate Mondays with a passion it's not the day itself it's the fact you have gone back to work, right. So here's what you do. Whether you like your job or not and whether you think you earn enough money or not, keep a list of all the ways in which working benefits your life. For e.g. You probably have some friends at work that you would miss if you didn't see them. It gets you out of the house, sometimes a change in environment is great. Working boosts your self-esteem. You get PAID. This means you can feed yourself and your family (if you have one), you can pay the rent. You run a car. You save a little bit every month for a Holiday etc.

Think about all of the things that working pays for, and think how much harder your life would be without a pay cheque. Now When you feel those Monday blues you can say "I am grateful for Mondays because (fill in the blanks) and pretty soon your whole outlook will change and Mondays will become the new Fridays. Ok maybe not, but you wont hate them as much I promise.

    Not at all! It's a new week of work, and a new chance to make even more money than the previous week. It certainly isn't the best day of the week and it can be a bit gloomy at times, however I try to look at it positively and always try and better my income from the week before.

        In my old sales career I got to the point where I dreaded Sunday night because that meant Monday was right around the corner and so was going back to work. I actually used that to my advantage when I set a goal to be a full time Internet marketer.

        One of my goals was to always take Monday off when I worked for myself. When that became a reality I found I enjoyed Sunday nights again and could use Monday for going to a movie, eating out, going shopping and so on.

        I like being out doing things when everyone else is at work.

    During my earlier days, weekends was always not enough especially on Sundays. Whenever I look at the date, seeing Monday makes me down.

    Nowadays I am more positive and looking forward for each day a great day. Mondays can't keep me down now.

      You might not love every day of the week, but you MUST experience and live every second of your life.

      Every second that passes is gone forever .. you cannot get it back .. so I enjoy the good and the bad.

      Strange how the bad seem to dissappear in between the good

      Ever since i started working 7 days a week i relized the i hate mondays feeling comes from a lack of consistency in stimulants, whether it be caffeine or wheat grass shots or nootrpics. and perhaps for some, the after party feeling...i realized its much easier to work 18 hour days than to party all night long, so now i choose to work more, and go out less...really not at all lol

    Hate or love it, doesn't matter. What matters is what you do on Mondays. The beginning of the week is always a great way to start moving your butt from where you are now to where you want to be by the weekend.

  • Hating Mondays, Thank God it's Fridays, Wednesday hump days, etc, only apply to people who are employed and have a job that they don't necessarily enjoy. For the self employed folks, our week usually does not have a beginning, or an end, nor a specific day to hate, to thank God, or to hump.

    Am always late on Mondays,because I give the day a slow start. BUT even when I give it a slow start I so much enjoy Mondays because there are numerous expectations.

    A bad Monday is a bad week altogether.

    Simply yes… I make sure I don’t race against ‘DAYS’ and go breathless and panting to find Sundays ( which seems to an ordeal of the most grievous kind). I want enjoy every second, and I'm going to make sure of it while I'm enjoying. Hating Mondays means enlisting 4 Mondays a month and 52 Mondays a year in your lamentable catalogue, which is a complete tyranny against you

    This is so very true, so many people hate Mondays because they don't see the value in going to work or whatever, IMO, if you don't like your job, get a new one, no one should have to endure something they don't like for years on end, but if there is no other option, find a way to enjoy it and make the most of it! learn skills there which you can transfer to your own business and soon enough you'll be able to quit and be self employed!

    As an online entrepreneur, for many of us, Mondays are like any other day. When you hate your job, that's when Mondays suck.

    But you have the ability to change your reality

    So if that's you, change it

    So ultimately nobody should ever hate their job...or Mondays

    Mondays are not really my favorite day of the week. I just think that they are the start of the week and that sometimes move rather slow. But they are often a day for me that is rather hectic, trying to get everything squeezed in that I did not get to over the weekend.

    Mondays are just like any other day for me. I don't hate it at all. I even think I'm more energetic to work during these days. I personally don't like Sunday nights. I feel the environment is too dull. Maybe it's because my family hates Mondays so much they become really boring during Sunday nights.
