Let’s be honest, after enjoying an amazing weekend cruising around town with your buddies or perhaps just whiling away time sitting quietly and enjoying your favourite soaps, switching back to the professional world Monday morning can be quite a challange! Mondays have been proven harder to face because right from Sunday you automatically start feeling the pressure Monday brings – returning to work; meeting deadlines and all – Not very exciting is it? But thing is, with the right steps, you too can cruise your Monday mornings like you don’t have a care in the world. 5 ways;
Tempting but don’t do it! Trick is Sunday night shouldn’t be when you get all the sleep you desire – get enough sleep before then and it’ll be easier to jump out of bed. By doing just that, your body will feel more relaxed and ready to take on Monday morning, no sweat. Sleep rejuvenates you, so a solid night rest prior Sunday night is key, if you want to smoothly transition. When you don’t give your body enough rest and Monday morning comes, you’ll be more tempted to snooze, and by that singular action you’re giving your body the go ahead to slow down compared to just getting up when the alarm goes off.
A quiet time as soon as you wake up helps you think/plan and makes you more relaxed. This is a great way to start your Monday morning, giving you positive energy. That constant stillness helps makes you feel more focused, concentrate more, increases self awareness and happiness. Steal those quiet mornings away from the noise and distractions and utilise them for a healthier you.
No matter how successful or optimistic you are, you sure will get knocked down real hard sometimes and at that point, motivation would do you a lot of good. Invest in personal development; read motivational books, watch inspirational videos… Getting motivated first thing in the morning helps gets your week started for success. Motivation is vital for success.
Don’t get it twisted, not only does your mind need to get prepped, your body also. Taking a walk, running or even jogging on Monday mornings is a great way to show your commitment towards your keeping fit routine. Exercise is crucial and can help you beat Monday blues as you tend to feel better and more in control. A work out especially on Monday mornings help give you that extra dose of happiness, how? Hopping on the treadmill can help deal lessen the anxiety of getting back to work.
Got an overwhelming number of project to handle? Organize and prioritize, have a to-do list, this helps tons. Organising your tasks help keeps you in check for the rest of the week.
