In case you have not read it properly; let me reiterate!
Sunday is the worst day of the week!
For us little people, living in the Middle East. Can you believe it? It is the first day of the working week.
You know what’s worst? The fact that all your friends, across the globe, are sleeping, blissfully unaware, as you battle the long traffic queues, pending work problems & a weekend hangover.
& you are all alone; because nobody else understand this concept of working on Sunday!
So what can you do, to make Sunday a little bearable?
1. Wake up early
Yes, as difficult as it may sound, it’s one of the best ways to start your week. You do not have to wake up 1 -2 hours earlier, just 5-10 minutes will help. The idea, is to give yourself enough time to complete your morning routine, rather than just mechanically living through it.
2. Listen to the radio on full blast, as you drive to work
Honestly, it always brings a smile to my face. While I personally like listening to The Kris Fade Show (as does the whole of Dubai), any radio station that plays good music would do.Well, and the fact that those poor souls wake up a full three hours before me on Sunday morning, just sort of lessens the misery.
3. Get that Cup of Coffee
I mean, don’t over think. Just get it. So what if you’ve already cheated over the weekend? A cup of coffee is not going to change anything plus, you have the whole week then to make up for it. I find, kick starting the weekend, with that huge mug of coffee, does wonders.
4. Make a list of things that you need to get done in the Week
Preferably on pen & paper, before you switch on that mean machine. It not only helps you organize your mind, early on a Sunday morning, but it also gives the whole week a sense of direction. I also find, those stolen 10-15 minutes, before the whole office goes abuzz, the best time to get your thoughts together.
Do you have any tried & tested ways to drive those Sunday blues? If so, we’d love to hear from you.
Until next time,
