Let’s face it: Sometimes the biggest threat to achieving our personal goals is the momentum-blocker known as Monday. It’s the dreaded day after the delightful weekend, and we can often feel uninspired, cranky, or tired. We all know how it feels to have “a case of the Mondays.” Symptoms of this may include:
- Bad mood
- Sense of Restlessness
- A lack of motivation
- A longing for the upcoming weekend
- Not feeling like you can face the long week ahead
What can we do to beat back the Monday Blues?
Stay on top of these symptoms with essential oils! Plant Therapy’s Blues Buster Synergy is a great option to help ease these symptoms. Here are several ideas that incorporate essential oils to help you come out on top when you have a case of the Mondays:
Start a New Monday Morning Routine
Why not incorporate a new Monday routine into your life? A great way to start your morning to help ease a case of the Mondays is to diffuse an uplifting scent in your aromatherapy diffuser. Blues Buster synergy is an uplifting, bright aroma that was formulated to increase your sensory and emotional well-being. Starting your Monday off with this aroma will help get your week started on the right foot, so that you can charge into the workweek with a positive mindset.
“Never Miss a Monday”
This is a common phrase that is thrown around social media, referring to the mantra of never skipping a Monday workout. But this doesn’t have to be limited to only working out. You can use this mantra to make sure you look at Monday from a different perspective. Never missing a Monday can mean you will always set aside time for yourself to work on personal development and growth, set aside time as a family to just be together, or set aside your “me time” to focus on something you enjoy, i.e. reading a book, watching your favorite show, cooking something new, etc. Add Blues Buster to your personal aromatherapy inhaler and sniff before you start the activity — that way, the aroma will be linked to your Monday activity.
Making sure you get a good night’s rest on Sunday night can help your Mondays not seem as daunting. About an hour before bedtime, add Relax Synergy to your favorite body care product and rub on the shoulders. This relaxing massage method will help ease the tension from the day, which will promote a relaxed state and help you unwind after a busy weekend.
Count Your Blessings
Take a moment out of your Monday, add Blues Busters to your personal inhaler or diffuser, inhale, and start counting your blessings. What are you thankful for and what are some positive aspects in your life? With the combination of a mood-enhancing aroma and positive thinking, your “case of the Mondays” will soon disappear as you focus on what you are thankful for.
The Monday blahs can seem like a looming giant, but being proactive with some of these ideas, combined with essential oils like Blues Buster, you can turn Monday into your favorite day of the week! Start your week off right, and make Monday a day to look forward to.
