If you’re struggling to smile on a Monday morning you’re not alone, turns out Monday’s are more depressing than we thought. Read about why Monday Blues exist herehere and here.

On average, we don’t crack our first smile until 11:16 am, reports The Telegraph.

You told us how you beat the Monday Blues, and we’re inspired:

Why are Monday’s so bad?

Health-related problems are one of the biggest triggers of the Monday Blues.  We need to get enough sleep, not over-indulge in food and drink and get through as much work as possible on Thursday and Friday so that we don’t start Monday’s buried in emails!

It seems that having something to look forward to, and being creative, are both fool proof ways of getting through the first day of the week.
