How to start your week in 6 amazing ways.
We’ve all had that sinking feeling on a Sunday night when you remember it’s Monday tomorrow and the weekend is over.
It can be tricky trying to launch ourselves back into work-mode, but with the right motivation and mentality, you can get your week off to the perfect start.
Below are 6 tips that will give you just the right vibes for a new week:
PREPARE ON WEEKEND
Monday is often a busy day – catching up after the weekend and preparing for another full working week. On a Friday before, make sure any work you started has been finished, meaning there will be no unfinished business to deal with when you start back on Monday.
HAVE ENOUGH SLEEP ON WEEKEND
Not getting enough sleep can really have an impact on your mood and productivity levels, so it’s best you get a good amount of shut-eye. And if that means having to record one of your favourite programmes then so be it, you can catch up another time.

GET SOME EXERCISE
This might not be for everyone, but an early morning workout is effectively an all-natural cup of coffee that can boost your energy levels by 20% and release happy endorphins to get you in a good mood. Even just a quick five-minute routine will help!
DRESS FOR SUCCESS.
Make Mondays the day you wear your favourite outfit or your newest purchase. There’s a direct correlation between how you feel and how you present yourself, so looking good will give your confidence a lift.
DON’T SKIP BREAKFAST
It really is the most important meal of the day. Whether it’s an on-the-go smoothie, satisfying porridge or jam on toast, get your metabolism up and running and avoid your stomach growling come 9.30 am.
REVIEW YOUR WEEK AHEAD
A top tip for a productive working week is to know what you’ve got on. So, the first thing on a Monday morning, prioritise your tasks and make a list of things you want to achieve for the week to ensure maximum productivity.
