Keep Calm, It's Monday

I was recently inspired by Brooklyn's blog series called Making Good Monday's where she would pose a challenge to help make Monday's better. I love this idea because it can actually cause you to look forward to Mondays!

So I am going to share some ways that you can (hopefully) make your Monday a little brighter!

  1. Make a playlist or put a favorite CD on to rock out to on the way to and from work. I know singing my favorite songs at the top of my lungs makes me happier!
  2. Pack yourself something special in your lunch or bring extra change to get a snack. 
  3. Eat lunch outside or if you don't have the facilities for that, strike up an interesting conversation with your co-workers over lunch.
  4. Make lists (if you like that sort of thing). I know I feel more prepared for the rest of the week when I write out everything that needs to get done.
  5. will brighten the moods of those around you, in turn making you happier!
  6. Be active. If you normally veg out on the couch after work, try going for a walk/jog with your roommate, spouse, co-worker, friend or even alone. If you already do this every other day of the week, try taking Mondays to just relax.
  7. Wear your favorite outfit. You will look confident and pretty even if you feel exhausted.
  8. Have an easy dinner option. Most likely you won't feel like prepping, cooking, baking, and cleaning up. And if you want it to be even easier, fix a large dinner on Sunday so you will have leftovers for Monday night.
  9. If all else fails, pretend that it's Tuesday or countdown till Friday :)
