Beat the Monday Blues

A hectic Monday can put a damper on anyone’s mood, no matter how good your weekend was. Worst of all, Monday Blues can make you feel lazy and sluggish which means that your productivity will go out the door.

Here are a few tips to beat the Monday Blues and get amped for the new week:

1. Pack your favourite lunch
Not only can a healthy lunch give you the boost you need to get through the day, but it is also something to look forward to. Set goals for yourself and reward yourself with your delicious lunch.

2. Music makes the world go round
Music can change your whole mood. Create a playlist full of upbeat songs for days like these. Turn up the volume on your way to work and you’ll forget about your Blue Monday before it even really starts.

3. Plan ahead
Schedule your weekly tasks. Doing the tiniest bit of organisation can put you in a better head-space.

4. Prioritise
One of the biggest struggles is starting the new week with a huge pile of work on your desk. Prioritise your tasks and decide what has to be done now and what can be done later. This will help make the workload seem lighter and you won’t be as overwhelmed.

5. Prepare for Monday on your lazy Sunday
While chilling in front of the TV, prepare yourself for the new week mentally. Make sure you get everything at home in order before you go to bed. Chores should be the last thing on your mind when you start a new week.

We all have on and off days, but there’s no reason that a Blue Monday should get in the way of an amazing week. If you feel overwhelmed, take a deep breath and remember why you love doing what you are doing.
