What's your Monday Struggle?

One more sleep and it is Monday morning. The weekly rat race begins all over again. You wake up from a sleepless night. You have been tossing and turning all night long, but when the alarm clocks rings you feel drained and fed up.

If this is an recurring pattern in your life you would need to evaluate the stressors in your life. I am sure you know what they are but do not know exactly how to deal with them in a logical order.

In fact, most Monday struggles are residues from the previous day issues.

Here are some useful tips to wake up less drained and more energised.

1) Every evening write into a diary everything that has happened during the day. If you have a lot of content you can write bullet points. The benefit of writing it down you let go of the emotions and thought processes attached to each event. After you have written it down it feels as if you have "dumped" all the worries of the day and you can sleep easily.

2) If you worry about something think about whether you can resolve the issue the next day. Again, make notes of what needs to be done before you go to sleep. Make a list of action and leave it on your desk in your office or kitchen surface to deal with first thing the next day.

3) Talk to your partner about the struggles you are having before you go to bed. If you do not have a partner or the partner is not interested in talking about the issue - which can happen - call your friend or any other trusted person. Have a good cry about anything and you will feel lighter and happier.

4) Listen to relaxing music and let your negative thoughts, tune in with the melody and the lyrics. You will forget the world around you for a little while. This exercise will diffuse your negative thoughts and worries.

5) A thought stopping exercise: As soon as a negative or disturbing thought pops up, snap out of it and think of your favourite beach scene. Your favourite scene may be a woodland, or mountain or a park in the busy city. Whatever your favourite place to escape is, think of it the minute you have negative thoughts. It may need practice to snap out of a negative thought but it will pay off in the end.
