Perhaps you chose to open your own business because you knew you’d be able to get weekends off and enjoy them with your family. You still might notice that Mondays are your busiest day because it’s the first day of the business week. 


At Awesome Website Guys, we’re WordPress experts who offer both WordPress management and managed WordPress hosting, and have a few tips from personal experience on how to make Mondays better. 


Ease Into Work 

Even if you worked over the weekend, you may have done it from your home or only spent a few hours total in the office. When Monday is your first official day back, it’s more vital than ever to make the transition as easy as possible. So, begin your day slowly. If you usually set your alarm for 6:00, give yourself a break and set it for 6:30 or 7:00.


Rather than delving right in, ease yourself back into work. Start by enjoying a cup of coffee and writing down your to-do list for the day and also one for the week. Cross items off as you go along. This will keep you motivated to continue. 


Start Off With Exercise 

Even if you only have 15 to 30 minutes to exercise, do some cardio. It’ll get your blood pumping so you feel more energized for the day. It can also help you manage stress so you don’t feel as overwhelmed. Plus, physical activities stimulate the release of endorphins, which are feel-good hormones. Therefore, exercise can help you start off on the right foot for the week.  



You might have six orders to fulfill, countless emails to respond to, a budget to create, and more. It might have all been on your mind over the weekend. Before you decide to fit it all into your Monday schedule, figure out what’s necessary to complete on this day. Whatever can wait, schedule for Tuesday or Wednesday. 


Make Plans for After Work  

Maybe, you enjoyed the entire weekend laughing and smiling with your family. You enjoyed going on adventures or maybe just relaxing in your pajamas all day. No matter how you spent your weekend, Monday can seem quite dull and tedious in comparison. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. 


Schedule something exciting for each Monday night, even if it’s just a family movie or game night. It could be the night you and your significant other go out for dinner, or you could make it a “me” day, where you spend it curled up with a book after a hot bath. Just make it something to look forward to doing. 


Change Your Frame of Mind 

Your mind frame might be what’s making Mondays such a lousy day. You might dread the hustle and bustle of getting back into the office after having a few days off, but you’re making it worse on yourself by dreading it and putting yourself in a negative frame of mind. 


Instead, start your day off smiling, even if you’re faking it. Put it in your mind that today is going to be a good day. You’re going to accomplish a great deal, and everything you do will turn out well, as long as you put your mind to it.
