Those who hate Mondays probably didn’t get to sleep in during the weekend because they went out partying or simply because they had lots of fun and suddenly they have to go back to the routine. Most people don’t like Mondays, but there are many ways you can make the first day of the week more pleasant. Whether you work, go to school or do both, having a positive attitude on Mondays can go a long way.
In this post, we’ll share with you tips that can help you overcome those “Monday blues” and take advantage of the day.
Try to rest during the weekend
We know it might be hard to find enough time to sleep during the weekends, especially if you have plans or you like going out partying, but you need to find the time to do something relaxing, like watching a movie or reading your favorite book. You also need to avoid thinking about work and all the things you need to get done.
Start the day doing something you love
If you hate Monday because it means you have to go back to work or school you can do something that you love on Monday morning and you wake up with more enthusiasm for the thrill of it. It will help you have a positive attitude to start the day off right. If you need to wake up earlier to make time for your favorite activity, it will be worth it!
Call someone you love
Can you think of a better way to start your day than with a nice conversation? If you live by yourself, you can call your best friend, your mom, or your significant other. It doesn’t really matter who it is, as long as they are willing to have a nice conversation with you.
Don’t schedule work meetings
It is better for you to avoid having work meetings on Monday because they can make you feel more stressed and anxious. If you don’t have any work meetings, you can work at your own pace and you’ll be able to get everything done without getting overwhelmed.
Start a challenge
Many people say that they will start their diet on Monday or that they will start exercising and most of the time they don’t, so don’t be like those people! You should take advantage of Monday because is the perfect day to start a new activity.
Sleep well, eat well
If you don’t sleep at least seven hours each day during the weekend or you sleep in more than nine hours, you are more likely to feel tired on Monday. You should also eat each meal at the same time every day and you need to remember that having a nutritious breakfast is extremely important.
