Eighty one percent of Americans experience Sunday Night Blues, according to a recent poll on WOW!


I  used to suffer from the Sunday night blues.  I'd wake up Sunday morning with a knot in my stomach, and I just knew it was because I was stressing over having to go to work on Monday.

Then, that anxiety spread backward into my Saturdays.  And eventually, just crept into my Fridays.  I sometimes felt sad and stressed almost all weekend!

UGH.  I knew there was something wrong.

4 Tips to Help you Beat the Sunday Night Blues:

  • Thomas Joiner, Ph.D., professor of psychology, Florida State University says the best way to take the edge off is by doing 10 minutes of work before dinner on Sunday. (Personally, that just sounds awful to me.)
  • Spend a few minutes visualizing Monday's tasks. Supposedly this reduces anxiety and that Sunday blues feeling.  (Also sounds awful to me.)
  • Schedule something fun for Sunday nights.  I had a group of friends that got together for a “Sunday Night Barbeque” and that did the trick for me (for a while). Go to a weekly yoga class, or schedule a movie night.  You get the picture.
  • Here's our best recommendation to cure the Sunday night blues.Figure out what you want you life to look like.  What you really want to do.  How you want to spend your time.  Who you want to spend it with.Then go do that.Don't wait for everything to be perfect.  We only have one life (that we know of).Stop dreaming about it.  Go and do it.  Live the life of your dreams.
