How To Start Your Week Off Right

HOW TOIt’s natural to occasionally have a case of the Monday Blues. There are few people who embrace the start of the week, and even fewer who enjoy it.

Personally, I have never been one to greet Monday’s with a warm hug but rather will a forceful push. Everything’s wrong; everyone‘s wrong; and, most importantly, everything feels wrong. There is rarely a Monday morning that comes when I don’t want to punch everything that breaths the wrong way – and don’t dare accidentally push into me in the corridors!

That being said, starting your week off agitated, tired or without enthusiasm is never the way to go. The hardest thing is knowing how to change this.

Rest

If your tank is empty on a Monday morning, it’s going to be a rough week. Although we need the weekend to relax and unwind from the work week, we often spend even less time sleeping than we do during the week. It’s important to find the discipline to make sure you get enough sleep over the weekend.

Prepare

There’s nothing worse than returning to school or work on the Monday morning and realising that you didn’t revise for that exam, or you didn’t prepare for that speech. The weekend is there to our advantage; use it to make sure you know what you’re doing.

Motivate

Always fall asleep with a dream and wake up with a purpose.If you followed my old blog or know me in real life, then you’ll be entirely aware of the fact that I adore to read quotes. Subscribe to a blog that posts inspiring quotes, or follow a board on Pinterest that does the same, so that you can start your Monday morning off with some inspiration.

Attitude

Bring your best attitude to the new week. Being positive could help you overcome many of your day/week’s obstacles and will define the week much more than you might first expect it to. Put on your positive attitude, and take the week by storm.

Extra Tips

  • Waking up can often be the hardest part of the job. Ensure you wake yourself up early so that your morning is not rushed. Also, leave a glass of water next to your bed to help you wake up in the mornings. You’ll be thankful for it, I’m sure.
  • Make sure you know what your doing. Although spontaneity can be fun, not being organised can be a hassle you won’t want.
