Carole Meekins: Positively Milwaukee

8/06/07 "Thank God It's Monday"

  • Print
Have you ever wondered how tired you feel on a Monday? How Friday seems a long way off? It has me thinking. What would happen if every Monday we all just pretended it was Friday. And acted excited and happy and thrilled to be at work. A study in published in the American Journal of Hypertension found that many workers suffer a significant increase in blood pressure when they return to the office after the weekend. Also, research has shown a twenty percent hike attacks at the beginning of the week. Monday has long been the dark cloud of weekdays. When was the last time you heard anyone say "Thank God It's Monday?" Well, maybe we should! We could infuse ourselves with positive Monday messages. We could walk around with a lilt in our step. We could embrace life filled with joy, laughter and mirth on the first day of the week. Would we have more energy? Laugh more? Enjoy the moment? Maybe we would be so happy we would make our co- workers angry. That would be funny! I think one Monday I will just pretend it's Friday. The mind is very powerful when it comes to controlling your state of being. One Monday I will try to induce myself into a TGIF state of glee on Monday. I would have done it today. But I thought of this too late. My Monday bitterness has already come and gone...ha..ha.!!!
