Can we all just let out a collective, ‘UGH…It’s…Monday…’? Okay, great, I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling better already. It’s no secret, Mondays are the worst. We can’t just hold a grudge and let the entire day go to waste though. Here’s a couple of ways to give Monday a makeover it so desperately deserves. First of all, Sunday Funday, while you make a fantastic best friend and we love you, it’s time to get real.I actually can’t think of a worse way to start the week than with a hot mess end to the weekend. The entire day doesn’t have to be devoted to grocery lists and laundry, but if not now, then when? It’s already tough to stomach the sound of an early morning alarm, so bottomless mimosas all Sunday afternoon aren’t going to do you any favors. Non-sucky Mondays start on Sunday get yourself together and reap the benefits when Monday rolls around. Hit up the market for some fresh flowers to put next to your bed nothing beats the smell of fresh flowers.
My favorite way to start the day is setting my alarm 15 minutes early, jumping out of bed, opening the blinds and blasting music. Make a playlist, music is the cure for any bad mood. Whether you prefer coffee house acoustic or something more upbeat, the right playlist can help you kick the day off on the right foot.
When the mid-day slump sneaks up on you, the best thing you can do is go home and take a nap, For most that is probably not an option though. Instead, try calling someone you love!
It’s so easy to get caught up in the day and forget about everything and everyone else. When you hit Monday’s rock bottom call someone, immediately. It’s tough to be a Debbie Downer when your when your bestie tells you about her emabaressing story from her weekend.
One surefire way to turn a terrible case of the Mondays around is to treat yourself, it doesn’t have to be with a cupcake. If cupcakes are your thing go for it, hell — get the sprinkles too!
A treat doesn’t have to just be food-related though, try getting something that special something you been dying to get our hands on, maybe the cutest pair of heels you have beedn eyeing could brighten up any old Monday.
When all else fails and Monday just can’t be saved, make plans to celebrate it coming to an end. Happy Hour with your girlfriends or your love can take the day from zero to hero before you finish your first drink.
