Many of us will have been in this position before. Where you burn the candle tip at both ends. You may have been out for a few nights out and had too much of a late night or few too many cocktails. You may have overdone it with exercise and fitness. Perhaps you just had a busy weekend doing chores and not much chance to relax. Whatever the reason may be when Monday morning rolls around it can be so difficult to get back to a normal routine. Sometimes it may even take you a few days. But I’m here to tell you that you can have the best of both worlds. That a busy weekend doesn’t mean a false start to your week. Here are some handy tips to get back on track after a heavy weekend.
Try and get to bed at a decent time on Sunday.
This may not always be possible, but if you can, head to bed as early as you can on Sunday evening. This will allow your body some time to recuperate and relax with a good amount of sleep. You many not have given your body much chance for sleep during your weekend antics so utilise your Sunday evening.
A healthy filling meal on a Sunday is always a good idea. Just don’t eat too late.
Eating too late in an evening can cause more problems for you during the night and the morning after. So on a Sunday afternoon make a conscious effort to eat as early as you can. Don’t be too tempted to fill your body with unhealthy foods and junk. This will only have a bad effect on how you feel come Monday morning. A good example would be to try and eat some of the main food groups. So a balanced meal of protein, vitamins and healthy carbohydrates would be the way to go. Perhaps something like chicken and vegetables.
Give yourself a boost on a Monday morning.
There is nothing worse than those stinging eyes on a Monday morning when your alarm is buzzing in the background. But alas most of us have places to be so you have no choice but to force your body out of bed. However, you can always give your body a little energy boost. There are many popular energy drink brands available online that you could try. Sometimes you just need a little help to get you going.

Getting on track can be all in the planning. If you work out your week with any appointments and errands and plan, then you are already halfway there for being on track. There is no chance of losing precious time if you already know where you need to be and what you need to do.
Try and be as organised as possible.
If you know you have had a heavy weekend, then help yourself out by being super organised. This means you could plan your outfits in advance, make your lunch the night before, plan your meals for the week. There is plenty that you can do to help yourself. So do it.
