A Not-So-Secret Guide to Pretending Mondays Don’t Exist

A Not-So-Secret Guide to Pretending Mondays Don't Exist by Terry Loerch

Ah, the Sunday Blues, that delightful time when the existential dread kicks in and you start mourning the weekend that’s barely even over. But hey, why wallow in misery when you can trick yourself into having a good time, right? Let’s get into the nitty-gritty of how to kick those blues to the curb, shall we?

First up, start your day with something so ridiculously silly that it’s impossible not to crack a smile. Ever tried watching goats yelling like humans first thing in the morning? No? You’re missing out. It’s absurd, it’s pointless, and it’ll set the tone for a day where seriousness has no place.

Now, let’s talk about turning Sunday into your own personal holiday. Plan something so fun that even the thought of Monday lurking around the corner can’t dampen your spirits. It doesn’t have to be extravagant. Ever had a picnic in your living room because it’s raining cats and dogs outside? Throw in some fancy cheese, or heck, string cheese, and you’ve got yourself a party.

And those chores you dread? Time to gamify them. If you’ve ever wanted to know if you can vacuum your whole apartment in the time it takes to listen to the entirety of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” now’s your chance to find out. Make it a challenge, and suddenly, you’re not cleaning; you’re on a quest to beat the clock.

Sunday nights need a rebrand. They’re no longer the prelude to your weekly grind. They’re now your mini holiday before the holiday (also known as Monday). Do something indulgent. Ever had a bubble bath with so many bubbles you lose your rubber duck? Exactly. It’s time to live a little.

While you’re at it, why not plan your week ahead, but make it feel like you’re plotting world domination rather than scheduling meetings? Get your fanciest pen, your quirkiest notebook, and make those plans. Remember, you’re not organizing your week; you’re crafting your master plan.

Before you hit the hay, take a moment to think about the past week. But instead of dwelling on what went wrong, try to remember anything that made you smile. Saw a dog wearing shoes? That’s gold. It’s all about finding joy in the little things, really.

And if all else fails, remember, it’s perfectly fine to do absolutely nothing on a Sunday. Sometimes, the best way to beat the blues is to embrace them. Lounge in your PJs, binge-watch that show you’ve seen a thousand times, and just chill. Monday will come regardless, but you’ll face it on your own terms.

So, there you have it, a guide to tricking yourself into enjoying Sundays. Who knows, with enough practice, you might even start looking forward to them. Or not. But at least you’ll have fun trying.
