Does the beginning of your workweek trigger overwhelming feelings of anxiety, sadness or stress? Do you lack motivation on Monday morning?
If you’re nodding affirmatively, you might have a case of the Monday Blues.
There are often a serious warning sign that something is not right at work. If you were happy, you’d be excited and energized on Mondays, not tired and depressed. These days, it can sometimes seem as if stress is a synonym for life. Whether it’s your harried morning commute or a boss piling on just one more deadline, it’s all too easy to shift from chilled out to stress out.
But, stress is not always a bad thing. Indeed, the body and brain’s normal reaction to everyday stress is what allows us to handle daily challenges in our life. There are a few different types of stress that we experienced, but essentially they fall in two different categories – eustress (term for positive stress) and distress (term for negative stress).
