7 Ways to Beat the Monday Blues
Tired of the same old Monday blues and in need of some motivation? We have come up with a few ways to help boost your productivity this Monday morning.
We all tend to indulge over the weekend, making the trip back to reality on Monday more difficult. One way to prevent this is to prepare on Friday for the tasks you expect yourself to be faced with on Monday morning back at your desk. One of the best ways to do this is by making a to-do list! There’s something oddly satisfying when crossing something off that you’ve managed to complete.
I know it sounds like an impossible task in the Christmas season but eating healthy meals has proven beneficial effects, you will feel better within yourself and you will have a little more energy to get you through the day.
Have a chat
Even if you’ve had a rest all weekend and you’re still feeling under the weather this Monday. How about a little chat over a cup of tea with your colleagues. Nothing really beats and chat and a cuppa after all. Then you should be more productive once you start working!
Make a plan
If you’ve been suffering from severely down days when Monday hits you might be putting to much pressure on yourself. If you make a plan for the week you might realise that you have more time before a deadline. This will also help you being realistic.
Paint a picture
Get in touch with your creative side if you want to beat the Monday blues. Creating artwork can help to increase your happiness! Even doodling on a bit of paper helps release stress and anxiety.
Switch off at the weekend
If you can try to avoid checking work e-mails and voicemails during your time off. It is very tempting to check but when you leave the office you should leave your work stresses and worries there too. So when Monday comes around again you will be rested and ready to tackle any problems.
Having fun over the weekend will make you happy. By doing things that cheer you up you the positive attitude you have will transcend on your Monday morning, this is one of the best ways to beat the Monday blues!
