Did the weekend go by too quickly again? Do you feel like you hardly got a good rest this weekend? Here are some tips on how to kickstart your week!
1. Get some sleep
Mondays are nobody’s favourite day of the week. When the alarm goes off, the only thing you want to do is smash the thing against the wall and continue sleeping. People often underestimate sleep. For a good start of the week, make sure you get your rest before the workweek starts. Having a well-rested weekend is essential to having a good week.
Plan your week carefully and tactfully. Make a list of the key events of the week and make room in your schedule to prepare for it. Have an important meeting coming up this week with your boss? Highlight it in your schedule. The more you know about your week’s schedule, the better you are prepared and the less chance there is for surprises.
3. Eat (well)
Planning a great high-calorie meal this week? Try moving it to the end of the week. Having a high-fat meal earlier in the week may make you feel guilty for having that meal all week. You’ll stress about not being able to find the time to go to the gym and you’re going to be a lot more conscious of what you eat all week, which is another unnecessary thing to worry about when you’re already busy.
4. Dress up
Looking good can sometimes help you feel good as well. Have a dress that you wanted to save for casual Friday? Why not wear it on Monday instead and get your ego boosted at the start of the week!
5. Things to look forward to
Nothing is better to kickstart your week than having something to look forward to at the end of the week. Plan an amazing date with your boyfriend or go shopping with your friends. Book a table at that restaurant you’ve been wanting to go to for ages (and have that high-calorie meal then) or finally go take that tap dancing class.
Have a good week – good luck!
