I have had a very exciting weekend spending it with my close University friends and then my boyfriend coming to visit. Every week at Uni I am always busy doing crazy things that I wish I shared more with you guys. I spent most of last week at home as I was very ill. Last Sunday I spent the whole day in bed being sick repeatedly and all I wanted was to be at home being looked after by my mum, eating her home – made soup. I caught a late train back Thursday evening so that I was able to go to all my seminar and lectures on Friday, and to catch up with my course friends. On Friday night I went to lollipop with some course friends which is an event on every Friday night at a club called The Old Fire Station, which is just around the corner from my accommodation. It was a lot of fun yet it was extremely cold. So the walk there and back was not too much fun!
On Saturday morning Solly, my boyfriend got the train down to Bournemouth so we could spend the weekend together. We did lots of Christmassy things and just chilled, it was nice to be together away from home, like a little winter get away.
So after a lush weekend, I have major Monday blues and I am here to help you all through yours.
1.WRITE A TO – DO LIST
One of the main things I have to do before I start my week is write a to – do list and update my diary. I have a deadline this week so I find it easier to schedule in a time to do it, so that it will definitely get done. I write one list of what I need to get done that week, then write one for the day. Such as saying when I need to go the gym, blog, write up notes ect.
2. USE MONDAY AS A FRESH START
Whenever my day has not been productive I really feel bad about it and beat myself up. Although I do not have much to get done at the moment, I get upset with myself when I don’t spend my time wisely, so this is why I use Monday as a fresh start. When you begin your week well, hopefully it will end well too. It is time to be productive.
3. EAT A GOOD HEALTHY BREAKFAST
I have always been that person who skips breakfast, especially when being at University. But I have come to realise that this is very unhealthy. Starting your week with a healthy breakfast will kick start your Monday and make you feel fresh.
4. MAKE SURE YOU INCLUDE SOMETHING ‘FUN’ IN YOUR TO – DO LIST
Although you want to be productive, especially when you are at Uni, you want to keep yourself entertained. If you are trying to have a productive day, even getting a bit of fresh air will split up your time. University is meant for socialising, so meeting your friend for a coffee or popping round to there flat will lift you mood a lot.
5. GO TO BED EARLY SUNDAY NIGHT
Even on a Sunday night at University there is always something going on, but try and get an early nigth. It is easy for me to say but it will really kick start your week to be a great one.
Do you have anyways to over come Monday blues?
