How To Beat The Monday Morning Blues


First off huge apologies for my severe lack of posts in the past week, I’ve found myself having plans every day which has literally left me with no time to write any blog posts. ANYWAY I’m back now and I’ve decided to write about something we can all relate to – the Monday morning blues.

You know what it’s like you wake up Monday morning after a great weekend and that feeling of dread just hits you, it’s a whole 5 days until the weekend and you just feel a bit meeehh. So here’s 5 suggestions to make your Monday that little bit better..

1.Plan ahead

One of the big drawbacks of a Monday morning can be thinking of all the work you have waiting for you when you get into the office, but if you plan ahead on Friday and write yourself a to do list, you can see what you need to do and work out how you’re going to do it. Simples.

2. Coffee

Ahh coffee the wonderful drink of the gods (well apart from prosecco and fanta lemon), if you’re feeling tired and groggy then grab a cup of coffee, the caffeine will give your Monday morning a little extra oomph.  Just don’t have too many, you don’t want to be bouncing off the walls and then having a caffeine come down by 11am..

3. Get a good nights sleep

Pretty self explanatory this one guys, by making sure you get 7-9 hours of beauty sleep on a Sunday night you can wake up feeling more refreshed and ready to take on Monday like a pro. So put down your phone and stop refreshing Instagram for the 6th time whilst in bed and catch those zzzz’s, trust me you’ll thank yourself for it in the morning.

4. Wear your favorite outfit 

Did you know its been proven that wearing your favorite outfit can instantly boost your confidence and make you feel more positive? So dig out that outfit that makes you feel great and work it! Who knows you may even get a few cheeky compliments to boost your mood even more.

5. Make plans

Don’t leave all your plans until the weekend, yeah obviously its great to have stuff to look forward to at the end of the week but try and have something planned for Monday night. Whether it’s a catch up with friends, going to the gym or watching a few new episodes of Orange is The New Black on Netflix having something to look forward to can really give you that extra push you need.
