Start your day on a relaxing note, even if it’s just 15 or 20 minutes. Taking time to enjoy your coffee or tea will give you a few moments to yourself, and allow you to start the weekend on a positive note.
Every Friday, make a to do list of things you need to accomplish that weekend. Whether it’s wash the car or finish laundry or change your sheets, put it on the list, and then you can plan out some fun time, while still getting things done.
There’s no question, some days are harder than others, but one thing I love to do is unwind each day. Take an evening walk around your neighborhood or local park, and just enjoy nature. You’ll feel better in no time!
I know getting up and working out doesn’t sound appealing, but it’s so worth it, even if you just do a quick 20 minutes of cardio. You’ll get the blood pumping, and you may find you don’t even need coffee later.
I always have a giant to-do list in the morning, and the easiest way to cut down on it is to prepare certain things early. Get your coffee maker ready to go the night before, fill it up with water, load your coffee in, and get the cup or pot set under, so all you have to do is turn it on when you get up.
Mondays are hard, and we all could use something to make it a little easier, so give someone a compliment. You never know what another person is going through, and you never know how one little compliment can really make their day and make them feel better.
We all know how hectic it can be heading into a new work week, which is why I feel that a huge amount of time can be saved in the morning if you prepare meals ahead of time. Whether you food prep for the whole week or you just get your lunches and snacks packed the night before, it’ll save you some time in the morning, and you’ll feel less rushed.
