There is no doubt that the worst part of the week is hearing your alarm go off on Monday morning. No matter how much sleep you have had, we all struggle to drag ourselves out of bed and kick-start the week. You can sense the gloom from the moment you step out the door, and time seems to stand still once you reach the office. The simple mention of the M-word over the weekend is enough to send shivers down the spines of many, but fortunately we have figured out a few ways to make Monday suck a lot less.
11. Dress to Impress
You can start the week strongly and with confidence by putting some extra effort into your appearance. Monday is notoriously a day where people drag themselves out of bed, have a quick shower and throw on whatever work appropriate clothing they see first. Instead of this, wear your best clothes (or even better, wear some new clothes you’ve treated yourself to) on Monday and take a bit of extra time to improve your appearance. Also, making an effort to smile more can improve your mood and the moods of those around you. Combining these two will boost your confidence and positively impact the way people interact with you. By looking good, you will feel good, and it will impress your boss that you look like you mean business from the very beginning of the week.
