Today we continue our ways to beat the Monday Blues, from an article in Forbes online.
It seems a bit weird to be writing about the weekend on a Monday, but the truth is, what we do during the weekend can make Mondays so much better. It's also a bit ironic that this week's tip is to unplug from the very thing you're probably reading this on. But that's this week's thought ... to make your Monday better, try unplugging for a weekend.
"Unplug for the weekend. If possible, try to avoid checking work e-mail or voicemail over the weekend, especially if you're not going to respond until Monday anyway, Friedman says. "It can be tempting to know what's waiting for you, but drawing clearly defined boundaries between work and personal time can help keep things in check. When you leave the office on Friday, leave your office problems there and focus on enjoying your time off. Sometimes going back to work on Monday feels especially frustrating because you let it creep into your off-time, and so it never even feels like you had a weekend at all."
