Dealing With The Monday Morning Blues

By Refadoc, Posted on : Monday, 24 November 2014 - 5:50 am IST

 

Did you just have a lazy weekend? If so, then sleep-ins on Monday are expected. And so are Monday Morning Blues!

A latest research has suggested that we tend to feel a slump towards the beginning of a new week. Researchers at Australia’s Flinders University have found that sleeping by two hours extra on the weekends can delay your body clock by 45 minutes for the rest of the week. So, it all works out. You feel less sleepy on the next Sunday night, which leaves you tired for the next day.

If your weekend plan consists of catching up on the lost sleep, it is recommended to go in for shorter naps during the weekends, rather than going to sleep late. In case you oversleep, get up before time and go out into the sun to set your body clock right!

Ways to beat the Lagging Sleep!

Here are a few tips to help you catch up on the lost sleep:

  • Do not go in for the weekend recovery sleep. That never works out well. Instead, go in to gain your 8 hours of sleep everyday.
  • Set a limit to your sleeping time. On every Saturday night, go to sleep earlier and keep your sleep short.
  • Go out in the sun. Bright light has been proved to set the body’s clock on the natural track. Get out into the sun and go in for a mid day nap.
