Let's talk about the dreaded Monday morning! Even when you enjoy what you do, Monday’s always seem to roll around way to quickly and can often feel a little tough after a fun-filled weekend! So to start feeling more positive about Monday's, try these three top tips that'll help you stop dreading that alarm clock...
Prep the Night Before
Using your Sunday night wisely will make the biggest difference to the start of your week. Prep your lunch and make sure your bag is packed ready for work before heading to bed early to get a good nights sleep! It might seem tempting to make the weekend fun stretch out as long as possible, but taking the time to get organised and making sure to getting enough sleep will have you waking up ready to take on the week.
Who said Monday’s have to be boring? Decide to make your Monday amazing and make fun plans to look forward to. Whether that's meeting a friend at your favourite workout class, organising dinner plans or even treating yourself to a trip to the theatre – let’s make Monday’s the new Friday!
Get Up Earlier
Setting the dreaded Monday morning alarm clock even earlier than usual might sound counter-productive to improving your day, but by actually giving yourself time to get ready you’ll have a much nicer morning experience! Instead of eating a slice of toast over the kitchen counter and running out the door, you’ll be able to appreciate the little things like drinking your coffee slowly and eating your favourite breakfast whilst listening to a feel-good playlist. Rushing sets a bad tone for the day and will make you feel stressed before you’ve even reached the office.
