COLOUR REVAMP! MONDAY BLUES JUST TURNED SKY BLUE
I love to believe that Monday blues are not sky blue rather, they are a darker shade of blue.
It’s surprising how even after a weekend of rest, you have your mind buzzing like you have a swarm of bees roving around your head. You wake up with tired eyes and dishevelled hair, staring at yourself in the mirror and the only question that escapes your lips is “Hey! Is that you?” with a sense of little or no clarity if the woman staring right back at you is indeed you.
For some people, they experience Sunday blues then move on as the week unfolds while for some, they wake up with a nudge of Monday blues – a feeling of Monday being depressing or trying especially because of the return to work and routine after a weekend.
The thing is the day of the week “Monday” is here to stay. You can only get closer and be the best buddy to it or keep fighting it. You owe “Monday” some gratitude because it allowed you personalise it. The word “Mon” is a French word that means mine. So, it’s your day, your personalised day.
I have always loved blue and that’s the colour of the bright sky. So if you are willing to create this life-changing experience boo making your Monday blues turn sky blue.
Consider not rushing around every morning, let’s aim to start our days with more clarity. Why? Because waking up with clarity leads to more positivity, productivity, and peace of mind.
Sunday night is a determinant on how the Monday will unfold.
Plan your to-do list on a Sunday night. After you’ve written your to-do list, choose your top three priorities from the list. These are the three things that must get done, either because of a deadline or because they’ll make life easier in the long run.
Minimize the amount of work you need to do when you get out of bed. This might include preparing your breakfast or lunch, choosing your outfit, and getting your bag ready to go.
Declutter your space. This small step can make a huge difference in your mornings since your environment can impact your mood.
Choose something you can do for 10 minutes to help clear your mind. This could be journaling, meditation, yoga, music, drinking a cup of tea/coffee, saying affirmations, reading, devotions – whatever you like that will start your day on the right foot.
