Beat the Sunday Night Blues

Article excerpt

If you usually dread going back to work on Monday, or if the pile waiting for you on your desk plays havoc with your end-of-weekend zest and zzz's, try a fresh approach to begin your workweek.

Pace your days. Write down tasks and to-do's for the upcoming week on Sunday evening to show you how your work can spread out into small, achievable goals. Things won't seem so overwhelming if you can visualize your work getting done in several days rather than all on Monday.

Plan some fun. Try to schedule at least one activity on Mondays that you truly enjoy, whether it's stopping by your favorite coffee bar for a mocha latte or dedicating your lunch hour to browsing online sample sales you never have time to explore. This will put a positive spin on the week's start and sweeten the night before.

Prop up your career. Devote part of each Monday-just 10 or 15 minutes-to career management activities like networking, updating your Linkedln profile or researching new opportunities. When you can focus on the bigger picture and shape meaningful long-term career goals, you'll focus less on Monday's minutiae and enjoy Sunday night.
