Ah, Mondays; The days where you need an entire pot of coffee to stay alive are also the days where you can get the most done. Even though Mondays get bashed left and right, they definitely are days where mass amounts of things can be accomplished.
HERE’S HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OUT OF YOUR MONDAYS:
GET TO BED EARLY
Sundays are typically relaxing days, and there’s less going on. So, take this opportunity to treat yourself and get to bed early. Your body will thank you in the morning.
HAVE A MORNING ROUTINE
Doing the same thing every morning when you wake up makes it simpler to get out of bed. It takes less brain power, and your body can go into a bit of an automated mode. If you want to make the most out of your Monday (and every day), have a weekday morning routine.
Do what you need to do to get yourself AWAKE for the day. Personally, this means that I hit the gym early in the morning and grab a cup of black coffee. Figure out what will help you wake up.
SCHEDULE YOUR DAY
When you have a scheduled plan for your day, you are able to spend less time thinking about it and more time getting things done. Block out your day the night before, and give adequate time to everything you need to get done. You’ll find your day running smoothly and efficiently.
Lists keep you in order. Make an overall to-do list for the day, and then break things down. Make lists of your homework you need to get done, what you need to get done at work, and whatever other area of your life you have several tasks to do.
PLAN THE NIGHT BEFORE
Use the night before to get yourself ready to go. For me, that means that I pack my gym bag, my backpack, and have a rough idea of what I’m wearing. Do what you need to do to be able to run out the door the next day.
USE THE SNOWBALL EFFECT
If you’re lacking motivation, just get the first thing done. When you accomplish something, you usually feel like accomplishing more. This is the snowball effect, and it will help you get much more done than you originally planned.
