How to Beat the Monday Blues
1. Enjoy a cake and cup of tea
A simple yet brilliant way to relax! Why not try the Tipple Tails Ginger Tingle fruit cake, a rich ginger flavoured cake that you’re sure to love. Topped with Jamaica Ginger Cake liqueur, the Tipple Tails cake won’t fail to tingle your taste buds. The cake is even recommended with a cup of tea, and we would suggest brewing up a tea from Whittard, making for a perfect blend of scrumptious ginger cake and a relaxing, good-quality cuppa.
2. Weekend shopping spree
There’s nothing like a bit of retail therapy to clear away those Monday blues. Treating yourself to that dress you’ve always wanted or spending a little bit more on skin care than you normally would just for one day is a great way to forget about uniform shopping for the kids for a few hours. Even a spot of window shopping is sure to brighten your mood.
3. Head to the countryside
Wherever you live, the great British countryside is never far away, and there’s no better way to forget about life’s stresses than to get out of the house and breathe in the fresh air. Take the family on a long walk in the countryside; the kids will love seeing what they can discover whilst you listen peacefully to nothing but the sound of the birds – bliss!
4. Sunday sleep
It may sound obvious, but there’s no better way to start off your Monday morning feeling wide awake. The worst feeling is dragging yourself out of bed to go to work or to get the children to school in time, but getting a good night’s sleep on Sunday night will make these tasks seem less daunting. You will be guaranteed to feel refreshed and ready for anything!
5. Make time for breakfast
Whether it’s just a bowl of cereal or a few pieces of toast, breakfast on a Monday morning is a must. Starting the day off feeling hungry will only make the blues worse, but a nice breakfast first thing will be sure to keep you going at work or give you the energy to get the kids up and ready for school, which can be quite a task straight after the summer holidays!
