Sluggish, tired, bored, annoyed, cranky, moody… Do any of these words describe you on a Monday? I mean who wants to wake up early and go to school after having an amazing weekend? Most people hate Mondays, because it is right after the weekend. Yet, what if we could make Mondays amazing, or if not amazing at least a good day. Here is a few tips from me to you, to beat the Monday blues!
Tip 1. Procrastinate Feeling Blue & Stay Positive
You know that your going to feel bad on Monday, so leave that for Monday! That already gives you a negative mind set. If your going to think about Monday, think positively. Think about the good things you have planned for that day, instead of thinking about what that day actually is. So leave the blue thoughts behind and enjoy your day.
Tip 2. Complete As Much Work on Friday as Possible
It’s Friday! When the day of the week is Friday everybody is already thinking about their weekend plans instead of doing their work. Try to complete as much work as you possibly can on Friday so you can enjoy your weekend and not be stressed on Monday about the work you still have to finish.
Tip 3. Plan Something Special
Go out to eat with friends. Rent a movie. Go out and buy the new Hollywood Undead Album that got an 8/10 from our music reviewer. Plan something special so you have something to look forward to at the end of the day.
Also, a reason you might feel depressed is because of seasonal affective disorder (SAD). It’s a type of depression that occurs the same time every year. If you’re like most people with seasonal affective disorder, your symptoms start in the fall and may continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody. Treatment for this is physiotherapy or medication. SAD during the winter months can make your Mondays worse. So don’t just brush it off.
Here is a few tips to make your Mondays more enjoyable. They helped me! So good luck Beating the Monday Blues!!
