Do you suffer Monday blues? I do! For me it's the first day back for school runs which mean I have to up and ready before 8.15am so I can get the girls too school. For many it's first day back at work too. Getting motivated on Mondays can be pretty tough right? But for some, many people are motivated on Mondays but if you are one who isn't, like me, then here are 4 tips that may help you get motivated every (most) Mondays!
PREPARE THE NIGHT BEFORE
This can help so much. Getting things prepared the night or day before can make Mondays a little easier. For example you could make sure you're on top of the washing, the house work and lunch boxes are packed and ready for the morning. If you have children then you could make sure their school uniforms are out ready, along with their shoes, coats and bags.
GET THE HOUSE WORK DONE
If you didn't get the house work done the night before then doing it on a Monday morning can help your 'mood' for the rest of the day. House work is one of the most boring and hated things to do but it's got to be done hasn't it? So why not get it over and done with at the start of the week and keep on top of it for the rest of the week bit by bit.
MEET UP WITH FRIENDS
If you haven't seen your friends over the weekend, why not have a cuppa and a catch up? Catch up with what you have all been up to during the weekend and it can make the day go quicker - in a way.
PLAN THE WEEK AHEAD
Planning for the week ahead may get you motivated for Monday and the rest of the week. Preparing for Monday you could plan to do a few things. Whether it is meeting with friends, getting house chores, completing tasks at work or whatever you want to achieve or plan.
GO FOR AN EARLY WALK
Nothing can motivate you more than morning fresh air. Getting up early in the morning to go for a walk or even just some exercise at home can make you motivated on Mondays. Also exercise is good for your health and puts you in a good mood for the rest of the day - if nothing else spoils it of course!
