Monday Blues

Monday Blues

Oh Monday's. How we all despise you so. It seems as if the weekends fly by, and the fun moments within those two days are nothing but a memory upon waking Monday morning. Once you hear the all too familiar sound of your alarm clock go off unbearably early on Monday morning, it seems as if all the life that was in you drains away little by little throughout the week.

Maybe you work in hospitality, or any job other than in an office setting, and you don't have the typical Saturday and Sunday off. Maybe you have Tuesday and Wednesday off. Whatever it may be, do you find yourself counting down the days, hours, maybe even minutes until you're running out the door to escape to what little freedom it seems you have?

Don't worry, you're not alone. In fact, I'm willing to bet that most of us are living for our days off. We work as if we're all robots or better yet, zombies going through the monotonous routine of our daily schedule. The paycheck, the fancy, overpriced coffee and our coworkers seem to be the only inspiration that keeps us returning to the same maddening regimen that creates this ghastly and undeniably lethargic sense of being.

Well, what if I told you that your working days didn't have to be as somber as they seem? What if I told you on the days you work, you could be just as happy as you are on your weekends? Sounds great, right? It's not an insurmountable concept. It's simply a matter of pre-conditioned perception. As we grew up, our culture conditioned us to hate "Monday's." It's prevalent in the news, television shows, and movies alike.

And as a result of our indoctrination, into the "we hate Monday's club" we have learned to hate the day of the moon. Which in turn leads to our suffering. This is also the result of placing a negative connotation on things in our lives. So how do we reverse our preconditioned connotations?

Simple, we react the way we do to certain things because our minds have been trained to do so. So what we're actually dealing with is the question of how do we retrain our subconscious to less perceive Monday's, or anything really for that matter, in a negative light? The answer is repetition.

When negative thoughts, regarding any matter, creep into our minds we must be cognizant of them and stop them abruptly. And then we simply replace them with a desired thought. This will take time as we are trying to undo the conditioning of many years. However, with diligence, success can be found. Our perspective is ultimately what we choose it to be. The only difference is whether or not we choose to control them.

Did I just blow your mind or what? Perhaps you're bored with my logistical thinking about our perceived "definition" of what a Monday usually stands for. Maybe you're intrigued. Either way, regardless of if it's a Monday or not, try retraining your thought process to avoid the downward spiral of negative thinking. Try putting some pep into your step, be more friendly with your customers, smile a little more. I mean, you have to go to work anyways, might as well make the most of it. Who knows, you may just end up having a new and blissful definition of the term, "Monday Blues."
