Have a chat

Despite having two days off over the weekend, apparently having a chat can help us overcome our Monday blues. Your boss may not be happy about this tactic, but according to clinical psychologist Professor Alex Gardner, we need to reconnect with the team we work in after the time off. The prof suggests that once we have socialised at work, having a catch up over a cup of tea for instance, we are then able to begin work and might be more productive over the course of the day compared to those people who did not mingle with their colleagues and who instead started work as soon as they arrived.
