Thank God It’s Monday!

Posted on June 06, 2016 by Fancy Dress Ball


Today is Thank God It’s Monday Day. Today is the day when we all try to raise morale on a Monday. It seems to be a national (if not global) tradition to hate Monday mornings and to live for the weekends – but realistically, one in every seven days is a Monday. And if you don’t like what you get up and do on a Monday morning, perhaps now is the time to do something about that! Life is too short to be miserable every single Morning; why not make a change and jump up shouting “Thank God It’s Monday!”

Here are some ideas for making your Mondays more bearable…

  • When someone asks how your weekend was, tell them about all the epic adventures and fun you had. If you spent all weekend on the sofa with Netflix and pizza… make up a few white lies about slaying dragons and running marathons! Make it a fun game to out-awesome each other.
  • Listen to some awesome music. If you really hate Mondays, make a Monday morning playlist filled with some brilliant tunes to make you feel brilliant. Listen to it every Monday morning and you’ll soon begin to love Mondays!
  • Go for a walk! Make your Monday meeting a walking meeting, or just get outside on your lunch break. Preferably find a park or green area to walk around and take some deep breaths in the fresh air.
  • Play some practical jokes on your coworkers. Check out this post we wrote about working on a Bank Holiday for ideas.
  • Perform a random act of kindness. The best way to feel good is to make someone else feel good. Pay for the coffee of the person behind you in the queue. Bring cakes to work for no reason. Compliment your coworker. Say good morning to every single person you pass on the way to work. Simple things that cost nothing (or very little) but will brighten Monday morning for both of you.
  • Watch a mindset video. You can find loads on YouTube and they’re great for making you feel more positive and inspired. This one is only five minutes long:
  • Pretend it’s a charity fancy dress day. Who cares if everyone else is in their normal clothes; pretend there’s an excuse to get out your fancy dress, and rock it with pride! Extra points for face paint!
  • Perform some kind of exercise. Yes, we know it’s Monday morning. But even a few minutes of star jumps or squats will get the blood pumping around your body and make you feel more alive. Try it, we dare you!
  • Do some tidying. Just ten minutes of organising your work space, your kitchen or somewhere else that’s a bit messy will make you feel infinitely better about things. Unless you’re one of those weird people who always keeps everything tidy.
  • Take a nap. Not while you’re supposed to be working; that’ll just get you fired and ruin your Monday. On your break though, find a quiet spot and take a quick nap. Some top executives swear by having a daily nape to keep them on the ball and with it. Top tip: nap in your chair with your keys in your hand; if you fall too deeply asleep your keys will drop and you’ll wake up!

However you spend your Monday, try to do something a little different today to make it a little more perky!
