Monday Morning Blues…..

Monday morning blues..a term which is quite commonly used these days by everybody. Even I end up telling my husband I too suffer from Monday morning blues though I am a housewife. So there are indeed different definitions for different people.. I thought lets check what our internet god tells us about the problem. And yes I googled of course..

I ended up with as usual innumerable search results. I thought I should have used Bing.. It could have provided me with fewer results as it claims to be a decision engine and not a search engine. I tried to use Bing and it gave me more results than I found in Google…so take a chill pill and use what you are used to…in my case Google is the word..

Anyways the links that I found I clicked on some of them and tried to decipher what does it actually mean.. if only I could find the right link. I read through some of to fight Monday morning blues, steps to be taken to ward off your worst Monday morning blues and that included going to bed early on Sundays and leaving your desk tidy on Friday to what not. I thought I will make a list and let my husband know so that he has a better Monday morning. There were so many of them that I thought not to bother myself and eventually him. I took this decision of not telling him because in one of the websites the number one cure was quitting the job.. better let him suffer from the blues…:)

I don’t know who the author of this term is..but whoever he or she is should be proud enough because it’s quite a term now which people like to quote even just for the heck of it.
So if you are really suffering from such a chronic undisease all you have to do is to open the websites and find yourself a cure.
Like : Quit your job.. great advice..:)
Reduce your weekend sleep-inns … ohh really!!
Start on Tuesdays.. wish that could happen..:(
Eat breakfast.. never tried that before..:P
Watch over kids.. I don’t have any.
Look your best.. I thought I always did.
Dance to upbeat music.. really..dancing can help?
Shop for cosmetic surgery online.. ???????????
Imagine it’s Friday…if I could why am I suffering?
So some of them i mentioned are quite unique and i have added my expert comments too..i will be glad to know if it has really helped anyone cope up with the problem..

But is it so simple? Can you really prepare the human mind in such a way that a person will not like laying in bed with a loved one especially after a great weekend or will a mother ever feel like waking up her child after a hectic weekend getaway?

We all suffer from Monday morning blues irrespective of who we are. To me a Monday commences the end of weekend and I have to be alone at home.. To a mother it means she has to get up early for the next consecutive five days and get her kids ready for school.. For working couples its another five days of pushing each other to get up in the morning and running to the washroom to get ready.. For retired people it’s like saying goodbye to their children and grand children as they head to work and school respectively. For the people who hate their office and boss it’s another week of contemplating whether to write that letter or not… and who love their work it’s an opportunity to forget the comfort of the home and face the world and try and make it a better place for me and you and the entire human race…..:)

Definitely the most alluring one I have come across in recent time .... Like many others I also suffer from the discussed syndrome. I particularly liked the affirmative ending ....
