Deuterophobia: fucking mondays…

It’s Friday. Everything seems perfect for a weekend break after a grueling week of work or study. The sofa waiting for you, beers with friends reflected in your eyes and everything seems quiet. However, the clock runs desperately to Monday and Sunday night is here present, you get into bed and waking back to routine.

Many people not facing too well the arrival of Monday, it is not enough the rest of the weekend and begins to generate a stress as it is completed. There arises a certain reluctance to decay and having to resume the life of labor or educational responsibilities. This extreme rejection Monday called deuterophobia (“deustera” is “monday” in greek. [Mks_pullquote align = “left” width = “200” size = “24” bg_color = “# 1e73be” txt_color = “# ffffff”] 35% of medical care occur in Mondays. [/ mks_pullquote] Extreme rejection say that I am not in favor of disorder diagnosed as a simple laziness on the return to work, which is usual. But it is true that there are extreme cases of anxiety due to this fact and somehow you have to control call it as we call it. In fact, if this feeling of sadness dissipates throughout Monday we not speak of a phobia, but other causes anxiety.

Studies say that 72% of people feel weaker and less mood on Monday, is also the day of the week that greater job absence is recorded and 35% of medical care occurs. Chance? Without this having to trigger a phobia Mondays are tiresome for a large majority.

Suggestions to overcome the phobia to Monday

  1. Plan a nice Mondays. That is, we can use to make a meal pleasant working with peers who have more esteem. This will act to reinforce positive for the following Monday, or should.
  2. Put on your favorite music list to go to work. And even you can share with a colleague some new great song you’ve ever heard.
  3. Afterwork. Take the opportunity to socialize or a pleasurable activity after work and go to the gym or left for a beer with that friend who always say “We have to take a stick” and never reaches the day.
  4. Rely on family or friends. It sounds like a cliché, but it is worth your situation to tell relatives or close friends. It is likely that they will encourage or facilitate you the ability to disconnect. If your family does not know that you get stressed about this situation and over the Sunday night you propose other stressful activities also will not help to alleviate the first.
  5. If the internal pain and anxiety by this continuous fact, consultation with a professional. It is the best way to accurately diagnose and begin treatment more appropriate as the case, as it may not be caused by the fact that Monday and this alone is a more instigator of anxiety and need for greater control.

After Monday, it is on Tuesday. Do not be put off by negative thoughts and face it responsibly.
