I am happy to say It’s that day of the week that most people don’t like again- Monday morning.
And yes the weekend is officially over. Saturday is officially not coming back until after six day.
So to help you get through the day, here are our top tips to make your Monday mean more:
1. You will have to get up earlier
If you really want to change your Monday mindset, start as you mean to go on. Try waking up ten minutes earlier, and slow your morning routine right down. Take full advantage of any flexible working hours offered.
2. Eat breakfast
The nutritional and mental benefits of the day’s first meal are well-documented. Eating breakfast keeps you healthy and ready to go for the day.
3. Don’t go back to sleep, only the lazy ones do, except you don’t feel well.
Fight the temptation to slip into slumber, and you’ll feel better for it. The person who sits next to you certainly will.
4. Make more of your commute
If you’re bored on the bus, why not put your sudden lack of stimulation to good use? Read a book you’ve always put off, or learn a new skill while you’re stuck in traffic.Thta way, you are productive.
5. Make someone’s day
Remeber that random acts of kindness are cool. Also, surprisingly easy. So buy the next person in line a coffee, or pay the cashier a compliment. It will make you feel good, and it will make them feel good. It’s basically science.Or you pay the fair of another if you can.
6. Make Monday your cheat day
‘My diet starts on Monday’. This is a common refrain, often uttered by unrealistic people. I think you should just eat like a king on Monday, and make your diet Tuesday’s problem.
7. Remind yourself about other successful Mondays. Fact is successful things happened on a Monday. Just think of it this way: if Mondays never existed, there would be no lifts and worse, there would be no Bullseye (both invented on a Monday).
8. Put things in perspective
Global warming. rain could try to spoil the day …….You get the idea.
You may be sleepy. You may lack motivation. You may have even forgotten your umbrella on the day you finally brave the suit/short combo. But no matter how bad your day is, it could almost always be worse. If all else fails, hey, at least it’s not Wednesday.
9. Find a Monday happy place
The sure-fire way to ensure your Monday morning morale remains high is to make it stand out. Think of all the things which make you happiest, and find ingenious ways to work them into your day.
It could be making an inspiring playlist for your morning commute, going for lunch with an old friend, or bookmarking something interesting to read on your lunch. The choice is yours.
Our go-to move is ordering something to arrive at our desk bright and early. Mondays may not be able to buy you happiness, but money can…
Aove all, remember your creator and appreciate him for a bright new day………….Cheers, Ririeye cares!
