Everyone knows how it feels: getting up on that dreadful Monday morning after a long weekend of going out. As fun as it might have been, weekends like this can come with some negatives; little sleep, late-night eating, and laziness. Things like this can hit you hard once the weekend is over and can make it a lot more difficult to begin feeling like yourself again. Here are some tips on how to get you life back together after one of those weekends.
Water is such an important factor to feeling better. Alcohol and high altitude (both very prevalent in Colorado) can dehydrate the body and make you feel and look tired. Drinking a ton of water can help you rehydrate and cleanse the body of anything unhealthy you consumed over the weekend. Also, water can help your skin fake the look of sleep and restore it to its normal healthy hydration.
Make sure you start your week off with eating healthy foods! This is vital to feeling good, especially if you’ve eaten a lot of junk-food over the weekend. Doing this immediately can help to begin an ongoing cycle of healthy eating throughout the week.

This may seem strange, but dressing well can help you feel more organized and productive. It can make you to feel better about yourself and help you accomplish whatever you need to for the week. Wearing pajamas to class (which of course everyone occasionally does), can encourage you to jump right back into bed. As painful as it may be at the time, throw on some clothes that make you feel good and you’ll feel more awake and ready for your day once you do finally wake up!
It may be the hardest part, but it’s like ripping off a band-aid. No matter how badly you may want to stay in bed, make sure you get to class or wherever you’re supposed to be. Once your there, being productive should start getting easier, and hopefully, you’ll already feel a little better knowing you made it there in the first place.
Planners can be awesome tools for staying organized and feeling good. Crossing things off of a list of things you needed to do can feel amazing and will help you remember all of your deadlines.
Not everyone drinks coffee, but if you do, this is an awesome tool to help you get your week started. If you’re still lacking energy and you can’t seem to generate the motivation you need, coffee could help you get through that exhaustion you’re experiencing as a result of the days before.
Working out can become even more difficult when all you want to do is lay in bed and watch movies all day, but it can really help you feel well again. A great way to get yourself to workout is to attend a workout class. Class options can range from kickboxing to yoga, and it shouldn’t be difficult to find a class that sounds good to you. Beat Cycle (next to 711 on College) is a local Boulder favorite. Taking group classes with others and being instructed by a professional can get you more excited about your workout and, at the very least, encourage you to keep going when you want to slow down most.
Whether you like being outside, going to see a movie, or reading a book, doing something you just love to do can make you a lot happier during your week. This can relive stress and avoid feeling frustrated and bored.
After a day of being productive, make sure you get a good nights’ sleep. Try to get 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night, or maybe a little extra if you’re really behind. It can feel just as restful sitting in front of your TV or computer in bed but it really isn’t; shut it off for a better day tomorrow!
After following these tips, you should be on your way to feeling like your best self again. These can provide for some great guidelines and reminders, and they can really help any college student who knows how this feels. We’ve all been there…
