Happy Monday friends! We know how tough Mondays can be which is why on most Mondays we like to serve up some of our most motivational quotes and ideas to get you moving and shaking! But today we just couldn’t help but make those suggestions holiday themed! Whether you are off on break already or anxiously awaiting the end of finals to head out of the dorms we bet you could use a few ideas to get your spirits lifted and fully into the holiday mood, right? Here are a few easy ways to shake off that Monday blues and get excited for what’s ahead…
Our favorite way to kick-start a soggy Monday (besides a big cup of coffee or cocoa!) is to pin a few images that inspire us — quotes, recipes, gift ideas…whatever! We love this cheerful holiday quote from our Christmas Time board above!
Decorating is not just for parents. You can get festive and deck out your room, your dorm, or offer to help deck out the rest of the house for your parents. We love how Stephanie Sterjovski took a twist on the usual red and green color scheme with fun colorful accents all through her home — so fun! Grab some tinsel and get going!
Get A Jump Start on Your Wrapping
If you shopped those Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals chances are you already have a pretty good haul of gifts to wrap. Get started on them early and you’ll not only get in the holiday spirit, but have plenty of time to chill out as the holidays get closer. Check out our Pinterest board, we have tons of cute wrapping ideas!
If you are living in the dorms this year we bet you have one unwanted gift – FINALS. Get out of the library and post up at a cafe for some hot cocoa and a few healthy snacks (ahem…we recommend a gingerbread cookie!) to fuel you through studying. Sometimes all we need is a little Christmas music and warm drinks to keep our spirits lifted!
