Monday mornings are not my favorite. In fact it wouldn’t be terribly far-fetched to say that I really dislike them. Just knowing the next day is Monday actually colors my Sunday evening. A bit to my surprise, I have found that there is actually a Monday Morning Syndrome, also referred to as MMS, is which can be described as a severe medical condition in which one has bad events occurring one after another. Folks show signs of tiredness, stress and anxiety. Most of what I have read blame the fact that we spend the entire weekend doing things totally different than our weekly activities, complete with eating and drinking differently, which impacts how we function. Of course, the recommendations to address it have all to do with eating healthy, getting regular exercise, plan, etc etc and so forth.
Good luck to us all....
