Friendly reminder that it is perfectly okay if the only exercise you get today os flipping the pages of a book, stirring a tea or laughing with friends. Wellbeing means your WHOLE body. Make sure your soul is getting as much exercise as your gluten. 🙂
“If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I bet they’d live a lot differently. When you look into infinity, you realise there are more important things than what people do all day.”
However you do it, partying all night long or a long sunday sleep-in followed by brunch and a walk in the park… have a good one
Monday, MONDAY, monday, whichever way you say it, Monday’s are definitely not seen as a joyous occasion, but worse than this is Monday morning.
How does your Monday morning pan out? Do you jump out of bed with a bop in your step as you prepare for the day ahead or does it sound more like the slam of your hand on the alarm clock begging for snooze as your cling onto your sheets, with the blinds mysteriously revealing more and more light as you are blinded?
Sound familiar?Yep, we’ve all been there.
Luckily, there are actually ways to transform your Monday morning, because in hindsight, it all really is up to you. You can wake up with the attitude knowing that your morning is off to a bad start, or you can think positively and get the show on the road.
Here are my best & most helpful tips for beating those Monday mornin blues:
SET A PURPOSE
Your attitude as you leap into the new week really is quite important- it helps determine & partly shape what your week is going to be like- it’s up to you how you choose to perceive this! Sit down, and write a few of your goals & intentions for the week. Refer back to these when you need- it can be big things you want to achieve at work (such as finishing off a project) or little things such as making more effort to spend time with family. Whatever it may be, write it down and work towards it- setting a purpose for your day/week.
I beg of you, please, please, PLEASE do NOT eat nutella on toast for your ‘nutritious breakfast.’ Wake up 10 minutes earlier and make something healthy and filling that your body will thank you for. A good winter favourite that will keep you going is a nice warm bowl of porridge, and for summer, a protein smoothie or bowl never goes wrong. If you honestly don’t have any time in the morning to make something good for your body, mind & soul.. Haha got you! You do have time. You should always be able to set aside time for what’s good for you and even if this means laying out the ingredients on the kitchen bench on Sunday night, it works for you and your body is only trying to help and support you- so treat it right!
TREAT YO SELF
It’s not said enough ^^!! Take 30 mins each day just to do something for you whether it’s reading a good book, going for walk to a cafe and grabbing your favourite skinny orange mocha frappochino where you’re secret coffee serving crush works, doing some yoga or going for a run. Whatever works for you, do it!
These tips are SURE to beat your Monday morn blues & set you off with a bang for your week ahead. What are you waiting for? BRING ON MONDAY!!
Lots of love, Blusabbia xx
This is the delicious, yet simple meal I made myself for breakie this morning from the #keepitcleanebook by Melburnian model Steph Claire Smith !!! A great way to incorporate almost 20 vitamins into just one small, filling meal! If you’d like a recipe for this, make sure you leave me a message in the comments, I love to hear from you guys!
For the past week, I’ve been trying to swap in a few things that I ordinarily eat for a healthier version- another great snack that I’m so hooked on at the moment is dark chocolate on popcorn! It’s so much better than clogging your body with salt and heaped spoons of melted butter, but rather a few blocks of some dark chocolate mixed in with some naturally cooked popcorn. This settles my chocolate craving well and truly every time!! Give it a go, and once again, lemme know what you guys think in the comments and give a shout if you’d like to hear of some other recipes similar to these.
Lots of love,
Please be a traveller, not a tourist. Try new things, meet new people, and look beyond what’s right in front of you. Those are the key’s to understanding this amazing world we live in.
