Easy Ways to Brighten Your Week

Monday, May 21, 2018

Even though Monday's are a bit more bearable during the summer, they're still not my favorite day of the week! I'm a big believer in that how you spend your Monday sets the tone for the rest of your week so I wanted to share some tips on how to brighten up your week that aren't necessarily hard or expensive to do!

Make fun plans to look forward to
If the start of the week is always rough for you, scheduling some fun plans for later in the week is a great way to brighten your day and give you something to look forward to. Whether it's a movie night on Friday or brunch on Sunday morning, making fun plans makes your week a bit brighter!

Paint your nails a fun color
I always feel so much more put together with my nails painted and I love having them a fun color to brighten things up. I feel like nails are a great way to add a pop of color without being too overwhelming and painting your nails or getting them done at the salon is the perfect way to add a little me time to your week.

Pick out bright flowers at the grocery store
Fresh flowers are always a great way to brighten your day and can be done pretty inexpensively (depending on what flowers you pick!). Not only are they fun to pick out, they will brighten your day whenever you walk into that room. I always like to put flowers on my desk to make getting work done a bit easier!

Schedule in some "me time"
No matter how busy your week is, scheduling in some "me time" is not only a way to brighten your week but also important for your mental health. Spending time to watch your favorite show on Netflix, do a face mask, or take a bubble bath is a great way to brighten your week!

Facetime a friend you haven't talked to in a while
I am definitely an extrovert and nothing makes me feel more refreshed than catching up with a friend! If you have a friend you have not caught up with in a while, give them a FaceTime call! A hour or two break is a great way to brighten up your day and spend some quality time with a friend.

Treat yourself to a coffee from your favorite coffee shop!
What is it in the coffee at coffee shops that makes it taste so much better than coffee at home? Obviously buying coffee definitely adds up but treating yourself every once in a while is the perfect way to make your day a bit brighter!
