After a weekend, the negative feelings and dread you feel on a Monday when you have to go back to your work are called Monday blues. Usually, it starts wearing off eventually as the days go by and the weekend keeps nearing.

Every Monday, you wake up and go back to the same old monotonous routine that you take a break from on the weekends. Following the same cycle for years without any changes can make you feel depressed at the beginning of a week.

Do not work over the weekend and rest well. On Mondays, keep your to-do list as light as possible and make a plan for yourself after work. You will be looking forward to that plan. That should be enough motivation to help you push through the day. This is the best way to beat Monday blues.
