Ah, Mondays – the day that seems to have a personal vendetta against our weekends. It sneaks up on us with the subtlety of a sledgehammer, leaving us longing for just a few more hours of precious sleep. But fear not!

1. Conquer the Alarm Clock Battle

Mondays often begin with a battle between you and your alarm clock. It's that moment of truth when you decide whether to hit the snooze button for the umpteenth time or to rise and shine. To win this battle, set your alarm to play your favorite upbeat song or, choose a funny ringtone that will jolt you awake with a smile.

2. Dress for Success (or Comfort)

They say dress for the job you want, but on Mondays, let's be real – it's more about dressing for survival. Choose an outfit that combines comfort and confidence. Whether it's your lucky socks, a goofy tie, or a pair of fuzzy slippers under your desk. Find that touch of humor in your wardrobe to make facing the workweek a bit more enjoyable.

3. Morning Coffee: The Elixir of Survival

Coffee is the nectar of the gods

Coffee is the nectar of the gods, especially on Mondays. If you're not already on the coffee train, consider hopping aboard. Experiment with creative coffee recipes, or, if you're feeling particularly adventurous, try a combination of coffee and laughter. Watch a funny video or read a humorous article to kickstart your day with a grin.

4. Embrace the Monday Blues

No, not the sad kind – the color! Incorporate shades of blue into your Monday attire or workspace. Studies suggest that blue has a calming effect and can help improve productivity. Plus, it might just remind you of serene oceans or clear skies, transporting you to a happier place mentally.

5. Inject Humor into Your To-Do List

Turn your mundane Monday tasks into a comedy routine. Instead of writing a standard to-do list, infuse it with humor by adding witty comments or using funny emojis. Tackling your responsibilities with a smile can make the day feel less daunting and more like a series of enjoyable challenges.

6. Lunchtime Escape

Plan a mini-escape during your lunch break to break up the day. Whether it's reading a humorous book, watching a comedy sketch, or engaging in a quick game, taking a break to laugh and recharge will make the second half of your Monday more manageable.

7. End the Day with a Bang

As the workday winds down, celebrate your victories – big or small. Reflect on what you've accomplished and reward yourself with a small treat. Whether it's a favorite snack, or a quick dance party in your living room, ending the day on a positive note will set the tone for a great week ahead.

How to start your Mondays 

Surviving Mondays doesn't have to be a Herculean task. With a dash of humor, a sprinkle of creativity, and a pinch of resilience, you can turn the dreaded Monday blues into a vibrant start to the week. So, rise and shine, put on your best Monday face, and conquer the world – one laugh at a time!
