Monday Blues, we all have them, especially after such a beautiful weekend. You can hear the sighs of your co-workers across the cubicles.
A few things to help avoid, or at least help, with those Monday Blues:
Enjoy a nice large cup of coffee, maybe an extra cup. As a coffee lover myself, this is my favorite part of any morning. I get up a 4am everyday, ah yes, I've been told I'm crazy, but it is a routine I have been in for years. I am much more an early morning person, I am useless in the evening! Have your coffee in your favorite mug.
I know I know, probably the last thing you're thinking of on a Monday morning as you hit the snooze button 10 times. But, if you exercise it will help you wake up and get you ready for the day ahead. And you will feel accomplished before you even step out the door. Try Shaun T's T-25. A quick workout leaving you feeling great. If you don't have T-25, there are a lot if at home exercises that you can do.
|Wear a new outfit|
Yes, yes, yes. What better way to feel great about yourself (and look good!)? Maybe you don't have a new outfit, try pairing a blouse with a skirt or pants you normally wouldn't. Or dig out an old favorite heel you haven't worn in a while.
|Take a break|
Take 10 minutes out of you day to get out of the building for a quick walk. Even if it is just a walk around the building. Do it! A little fresh air will be just what you need to get your head back into the game and get you through that afternoon slump.
And my favorite....
