11 Ways to Get Rid of the Monday Blues

Most people can agree Monday's have a connotation of being the worst day of week. If you get the Monday blues, like most people do, take some of these critical actions.

1. Eat a good breakfast

Starting your day by fueling your body in the morning is the best thing to do to kick start your energy on dreaded Monday's. Breakfast is the one meal you can't skip.

2. Surround yourself with your best friends

Why have a crappy Monday when you can have a crappy Monday with your best friends?

3. Treat yourself

Whether it's a coffee from Starbucks or your favorite snack from the grocery store...reward and remind yourself that Monday is a fresh start to your week.

4. Stay organized

Organizing your planner is the most pleasing thing when you are stressed with a huge work load. Do this on Monday and you will feel in control of the rest of your week.

5. Succumb to your alarm

Don't hit snooze over and over again (that's a Saturday thing). Obey to your alarm and get up right when it goes off.

6. But also, go to bed early!

As tempting as it is to stay up on Sunday night binge watching Gossip Girl, making sure to get the necessary amount of sleep for your body is more important.

7. Wear your favorite outfit

When you're dressed for success, you feel your best!

8. Don't overload your Monday schedule 

When you're starting to get in the swing of your week, keep your schedule on Monday light. If you overload it, that frazzled feeling will carry over to the rest of your week.

9. Stay positive

Sometimes Monday's, or any day of the week for that matter, can stress you out. Surround yourself with positivity and be that optimistic person for someone else who is having a bad day.

10. Jam to some music

Music is good for the soul. Throw in those earbuds, or blast that speaker and get yourself feeling good for the day.

11. Create a list of gratitude

Buy a journal and make an inspiring cover page. Whether it's on Sunday night or Monday morning, create a list of all the things you're grateful for and you'll wake up with positive thoughts. Repeat this each week.

Perform whatever steps you find necessary to give you the strength to tackle your Monday blues.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.
