The Confession Of How To Deal With Those Monday Blues...

I think we can all agree, Mondays are a real pain in the ass.

I didn't get a weekend at all for I worked solidly and when I wasn't working I was nursing my injuries and sleeping. I woke up this Monday morning worse for wear. I'm covered head to toe in scratches and canine teeth shaped bruises..oh and don't forget the giant Bullmastiff that shut my arm in a door. My love for dogs is getting strongly tested. I am extremely sore,stiff and tired. I was having my own pity party for the first few hours of Monday morning. I couldn't find an outfit that I wanted to wear today therefore I sat on my bedroom floor in my bra crying...yeaah I'm a girl, that justifies it. I couldn't be bothered to shave both of my legs in the shower so I only did one. I walked to my local  pet shop wearing shoes that completely clashed with my skirt and on my way home when I accidentally bumped into a smoking hot guy and I couldn't care less that I was standing there looking more like a half shaved crazy cat lady then a respectable member of society.

That was the final straw I thought to myself. I'm not sitting around all day feeling sorry for myself because I'm tired and my current situation isn't brilliant. It's time to turn that frown upside down and if any of you out there are feeling those Monday blues in the office, listen up, we're going to get through this together!

Step 1. Make an awesome Monday playlist. The rule of step one is it has to be as upbeat and as cheesy as possible. Need inspiration?

Before you proceed, please press play on the following YouTube video and then continue. 

Mine consists of

  • Living On A Prayer - Bon Jovi
  • I Want It All - Queen
  • Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N Roses
  • Oops I Did It Again - Britney Spears
  • Hit Me Baby One More Time - Britney Spears
  • Fighter - Christina Aguilera 
  • Walk This Way - Aerosmith feat. Run DMC
  • You Give Love A Bad Name - Bon Jovi
  • Jump - Van Halen
  • Here I Go Again - Whitesnake
  • Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd 
  • Crazy Crazy Nights - Kiss
  • Don't Stop Believin' - Journey (had to be done)
Step 2. Listen to said playlist ALL DAY. That isn't a suggestion. DO IT NOW. When you're on the tube/subway/bus/car to work, when you're eating your lunch, when you're walking around, when you're walking your dog (me and my dog were strutting it Freddy Mercury style this morning when I was listening to my playlist). When ever you get the chance I wanna see you listening to that playlist! Whip out those air guitars and get playing! Hell, crank it up and get the whole office listening!

Here's one I did earlier

Step 3. Treat yourself. Go on, it's Monday, you deserve that extra chocolate bar at lunch or a trip to your favorite shop on the way home from work.

Step 4. Make plans for Friday evening. Whether that be drinks and a meal with friends or a takeaway by yourself in front of the TV. Then you have something good to look forward to and get you through the week. 

Step 5. Know that you are awesome. You, yes you. You got your ass out of bed at 6 this morning, if you can get through waking up on a Monday morning you can do anything. Repeat this sentence after me 'I got through last Monday, I can get through this Monday. I am Legen...wait for it.....DARY!' Look at you go you awesome hard worker. 


Happy Monday folks!
