Beat The Blues Out Of Your Monday
You’ll never have to catch yourself saying live again at work if you “Ugh, it’s Monday” doable steps before and by these simple and on Blue-day.
Yes, you can survive the first work day.
1 Work Up A Sweat
Exercising will lift that feeling of dread from your chest and replace it with a purpose in your stride. It’s been proven that working out releases endorphins.
2 Low-Key Partying
Yes, Friday is here but let’s party in moderation shall we? Wearing yourself out over the weekend is never a good thing as it’ll take a toll on your body. So go slow and treat yourself to a quiet night in on alternate weekends.
3 Love Thy Job
If that passion you once had for your job is slowly ebbing, find a way to rekindle it so you’ll learn to love your job all over again. If it’s been completely snuffed out, perhaps it’s time for you to get a new job.
4 Organised Schmorganised
Give yourself a merry Monday morning by sorting things out the night before, like picking your outfit and packing a meal. That way you won’t be a mess come dawn.
5 Hearty Brekkie
Lift your mood and energy by gorging on a healthy portion of your meal of choice. If your oomph factor starts dropping during midday, grab a handful of almonds or dark chocolate to restore it.
6 Catch A Tune
Music isn’t just the food of love, it’s food for your mood too! Go easy on the melancholic melodies that reflect your state of mind and play something that would put a smile on your face instead.
7 Sleepless On Sunday
Your days of functioning on just four hours of sleep are way behind you so call it a night by 10pm. Researchers at the National Sleep Foundation in the US have found that a short or disturbed sleep affects your mood, performance and alertness. Well, that explains a lot.
8 The Happy One
There’s always that one person at work who’s cheerful, funny, and brimming with positivity. Go hunt that person down and have a quick chat if you’re feeling like a calcified zombie. Being around someone with a good vibe instantly elevates your mood.
9 Feel Good, Good Lookin’
Put in some effort so you’ll like what you see in the mirror in the morning because when you’re looking good, you know you’re feeling good.
10 Be Awesome, Be Nice
One good turn may not always deserve another but it can make you feel great. Opening the door for someone or offering your seat may not seem much but you’ll feel good about being a Good Samaritan.
