I must admit, as far as this particular Monday goes, this one isn’t too shabby given that I’m off to see one of my favourite singers Jake Bugg after work tonight so I’m in a good mood for a Monday morning. It’s also not raining, which makes a nice change as it usually rains on a Monday, which could not be any more Monday if it tried. But actually truth be told, I don’t hate Mondays. I mean, it’s easy to see why the first day of the week isn’t everyone’s favourite day, and it does gets such a bad rap. However, there are plenty of reasons to embrace it.A chance at a clean slate – The start of the week, regardless of what happened last week at work or school, it probably doesn’t matter this week. If you go into every week with a kick-ass positive mindset, you’ll find any worries from last week melting away. So go and pick a killer work outfit/make your favourite lunch/start your Monday off with a banging breakfast or a coffee from your favourite mug and own the day, and the rest of the week. You just had the weekend – I mean, unless you work weekends (I’m sorry if you do, I’ve been there), then we all know that weekends are awesome. I know Mondays seem so far away to the weekend, than the weekend is to a Monday, but there’s no need to hate on a Monday. If anything, you should feel fresh-faced and raring to go after a good Sunday rest. If not, I suggest a good bubblebath, personally, they work a treat for me every week. I am a big fan. Planning a killer work outfit -I am one of those people who likes to give an illusion that I have my life together (I probably don’t do that and I certainly don’t give off that impression, but a girl can try!) But, having an idea of what you’d like to wear on a Monday morning/and the rest of the week, really helps makes you feel like you have your shit together every Monday. And if you don’t, like me most Mondays, there is no shame in throwing an outfit together blurry eyed. Your hair is probably clean and bath/shower fresh – Let’s be honest, every Monday everyone turns up to work smelling of shampoo and body lotion of some description. You can’t beat feeling like a boss with clean hair. Beautiful.You get to catch up on the goss – Even if I have the most tamest weekend ever, it’s always really fun hearing all about what your colleagues/school mates got up to over the weekend.Even if the rest of week isn’t all you want it to be, there’s another weekend at the end of it – I mean, even if you love your job, like I do, sometimes knowing that you have two whole days to do exactly what you’d like to do is the best feeling. I mean there’s nothing like coming home on a Friday night and spending the next 48 hours slobbing around in your PJs with a good chunky box set, or making plans for adventures. Anyway, have a good week and don’t forget to own this Monday and every other Monday that comes your way. And if it all goes tits up, just remember, it’s only four more days until the weekend. Until next time,Love, hugs and pugs. Keri.
