    "The painting/repair team assigned to us was so professional, polite and efficient. The attention to small details made our house look really great. Tom, Bill and the team really listened to our concerns, whether small or large, and eliminated them all. It is so delightful to have had such a positive experience. We appreciate it very much."

  • Tips To Avoid The Monday Blues

    [caption id="attachment_7482" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Beat The Monday Blues"][/caption]

    Mondays can sometimes be a struggle to get through. A full week of work ahead of you, a long list of things to get done before the weekend...the coffee pot will be full today! Here are some tips to beat the Monday blues, and to make it more productive and easier to get by:

    1. It’s a Concept

    Monday blues is a concept and while there is research to show it is real, it’s still something the more you think about it, the worse it becomes. The way I deal with it is to not think about it. Does it go away? I am not sure. But it sure makes me feel better.

    I liken it to feeling an itch I cannot scratch. If you think about the itch, the itchier it becomes. So, I just don’t think about the Monday morning blues and I do not remind myself of the feeling. I simply ignore it and I feel better immediately. Get that concept out of your mind. The more you think about it the worse it becomes.

    2. Get Some Sunlight

    Or rather get out into the open when you can. Sometimes, just by being outside helps. There has been research that shows sunlight stimulates our feel good hormones and it helps deal with the blues – Monday morning blues or otherwise.

    3. To Do List on Sunday

    When I return from a long vacation, I use the day before to tidy up my list of things to do at work. It helps me plan out and prepare for the load of work that awaits me when I get back to work the next day. I use the same system to deal with Mondays. Get your to-do list ready for the new week. When you have a properly planned list, you feel you are more in control and hence feel less of the Monday blues. Being prepared a day before is surely a good way of dealing with Monday morning blues.
