For those who sit at home on a Sunday night, and it often occurs between 8 and 8:30pm, realising that the weekend has disappeared and that it is work tomorrow, here are a couple of things you might want to try to stop this negative thought.
Although it's too late for this Sunday, start writing down one good thing that happens at work each day. Then, on a Sunday night just before your blues set in, read what you have written in your 'positives' journal. You will recall the positives thus mitigating the negatives.
If that doesn't work for you, try setting yourself goals for each day of the coming week. What is it that you want to achieve on each day and how are you going to achieve it? Or perhaps you could look forward to something positive occurring each day. The problem with this last strategy is that if your positive event doesn’t eventuate you may be disappointed.
It is all about focusing on the positive to change the negative. Part of negative thoughts, just like worry, is a habit. Half of it is anyway. By focussing only on the good things you can change your thoughts thus your emotions.
