Don’t live for the weekends

Studies show people who are stressed at work tend to be much happier on the weekend. So don’t only look forward to Saturday and Sunday. Try to spread out the joy and plan something fun during the week, like a movie night with pals. There’s 7 days in that there week — make them all count. In fact, why not book that movie night for Monday itself? Even if it’s just an arrangement to play online games with a friend or catch up for a coffee.

Treat Sunday as a day of rest

While mid-week social time is all well and good, a balanced life is the best way to see Monday as, well, just another day. Pick either Friday or Saturday night to go out, and spend another evening staying home with friends.

Then, take some time for yourself — whether it’s getting yourself pampered, whipping yourself up a special meal, or getting a workout in, time taken for yourself is going to balance out those feelings about giving your Monday to an employer.
