Monday morning struggles.

It can't be Monday already, can it? Ughhh unfortunately it is.

You've just had a great weekend and suddenly with a blink of an eye it's Sunday evening already. You can almost hear your Monday morning alarm going off and all you want to do is sleep. 

I feel like a bit of a cheat writing about Monday morning blues. Why? Because I'm part of the wonderful world of shift work. Although not fantastic all the time, especially when everybody is out at the weekend and you've got a fun filled weekend of 12 hour shifts. 

You know what, we have all got to stop hating Mondays. We make it out to be this terrible day, inevitably writing it off from the beginning. Ironically the worse part of my Monday is seeing people instagram, facebook, tweet how much they hate Mondays and I mean it is on EVERY single social media site. As I'm typing this I've already seen 4 status' on facebook about Monday, go away.

Maybe today is going to be the best day of your life, Maybe it will be the worse! (don't listen to me it will be the best.) But you can certainly help yourself and make it that little bit easier to get through. 

A few tips to help along the way.

1. Do not snooze your alarm. Sounds impossible right? No. Do not fall at the first hurdle of the day. Set your alarm 10 minutes before you need to wake up, it will make you feel so much better. I know what you're thinking, that's 10 extra minutes I could of been sleeping!! 

2. If you wear your own clothes to work, wear something you love. Believe it or not clothes can cheer you up. I'm not crazy, it really does work. Feel for all of us who have to wear uniform. 

3. Make a really nice lunch. Now its Monday, we all need to treat ourselves and Monday lunch time is the right time to do it. It isn't the new start to your diet, you can start that Tuesday. Go eat chocolate cake if that's what you really want.

If that isn't enough to make you crack a smile today maybe this will. Remember make the most of your Monday, it isn't all bad.
