It is the beginning of a new week, day, and chances. Are you ready? Do you wake up Monday morning, fired up and ready to crush the week ahead? Maybe? We would guess that most of us would say not really. Monday morning always hits a bit differently because you are coming down from the weekend, and truthfully you might just not want the weekend to be over with. If you are someone that isn’t fired up when it comes time for your alarm to go off Monday morning, well, we have some Monday morning power-up tips to give you just the boost you need.
7 Monday Morning Power-up Tips.
Sign Up for a Workout Class
A great way to wake up is when you have a commitment already. And what better commitment than one that makes your body produce energy. Pro tip: sign up no later than the night before to commit yourself to break a sweat in the A.M. Another great build to this is the buddy system. Get a friend to sign up for the class with you, then it is easier to not have excuses to cancel.
Take a Shower
Sometimes all it takes is a nice shower to get you nice and awake in the morning. If you are someone who showers at night, try waking up a tad bit earlier to shower in the morning. You might be surprised as to how awakening it can be. Pro tip: try taking a cooler shower than you normally would. It helps get the blood flowing and really get you energized for the day.

Plan Something to Look Forward to
A lack of motivation is often related to a day full of the “same old, same old.” Rather than fight this uphill battle, identify something in your day to look forward to. Pro tip: plan a meal with a friend or a phone call with someone you have been meaning to chat with for a while.
Eat an Energy-Boosting Breakfast
How do you plan on getting motivated if you don’t have any energy? How do you plan on staying motivated if you’re out of energy just an hour into your day? Pro tip: try one of our power smoothies.
Don’t You Dare Hit Snooze
Once you start snoozing your alarm, it takes a lot to get back on track. Even if you know you have extra time in the morning, you’re better off spending it another way. Use that extra five minutes in the shower or sit down with your SUPER FUEL. Pro tip: the extra 7 minutes of rest doesn’t really do anything since you are already awake.
Get Dressed Right Away
With more of us working from home now or working remote it is easy to stay in your pajamas. Getting dressed as soon as you get out of bed — or out of the shower — is a must if you want to boost your motivation. You break the pattern of what you were sleeping in and awaken the pattern of the new day. Pro tip: don’t ever put your pajamas back on after getting a shower. This can undo all the steps you’ve already taken to motivate.
