Coffee Breaks With ISLM: 7 Ways to Beat Monday Blues


Coffee Breaks With ISLM: 7 Ways to Beat Monday Blues

Do you dread every Monday morning that comes your way? Well you aren’t the only One doing so. Most of the working (should it be employed?) population suffer from this syndrome every Monday morning. In fact, until a couple of months ago I used to feel down the moment the clock struck 7pm on Sunday evening. I’d literally tell myself… ‘weekend is over and oh Monday I hate you..’!

However, of late, I have found a couple of ways to manage this stress that drives all of us crazy each and every Monday.

1.   Wear your best dress or favorite color: 
This tip works like a charm. Wear the dress you look your best in, or the one that’s your favorite. The pluses of doing this are many. You will feel great, and if you are lucky enough, compliments could just start overflowing. And lastly, a dull or drab dress adds to the sunken feeling ten times, if not more!

2.    Turn on the music: 
If your mood is still not upbeat, what’s music for? Turn on your favorite tunes as soon as you wake up on Monday. I love listening to FM and I turn it on Monday mornings for sure, when am doing the usual chores of packing a lunch or sipping my morning cuppa of tea or coffee. It’s an amazing way to re-vitalize yourself and start the day on a bang.

3.    Pre-plan your Mondays: 
I know so many people who hate to do this. Choose your dress, iron it, if needed and decide what to pack for your lunch on the Sunday afternoon or evening. Do not wait for the next morning to do this. Chances are you will be rushed and your day will be unorganized right from the morning.

4.    Food for happiness: 
Good food cheers all of us, isn’t it? Pack something that you love to eat for your lunches on Monday. The delicious food will up your excitement levels and it will continue to be that way till Monday noon too.

5.    Have a 3 day weekend: 
I read somewhere—Happiness is in the Mind. This trick is just an offshoot of this lovely quote. Instead of packing your weekends with plenty of plans, spread them over 3 days—Saturday, Sunday and Monday. So if you have planned to shop and watch movies with your friends, just go shopping during the weekend and postpone the movie plan to Monday evenings. Your entire day will seem quite happy, promise.

6.    Relax: 
That’s what weekends are for! But do not over-do it. Stick to your regular schedule and make minimal changes to the sleeping pattern. For example, instead of sleeping till noon, try sleeping 2 hours more than you do on weekdays, and then take a nap later in the day. Find out other ways to beat stress such as going for a relaxing massage, pedicure or visiting open and quiet places nearby. 

7.    Fridays: 
Try not to postpone pending work till Mondays. Complete as much as possible on Fridays so that you can relax during the weekends and on Monday.

Now armed with these tips, bid goodbye to Monday blues. Implementing these tips will not just help you to have happy Mondays; you will also not be led to think that it’s time to bid goodbye to your current job. Finally, if you still suffer from Monday blues, try listing down the reason why you are employed in the first place and the benefits that you get to enjoy by being independent.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
