The Monday blues. We all get it from time to time. After a break from routines and busy schedules, it can be daunting to start another week come Monday morning. But fear not because here are 4 ways you can get rid of the Monday blues and be prepared for the week ahead. 

1. Get everything you need packed and ready on Sunday.

A travel cooler bag filled with a water bottle, pop can, yogurt tube, grapes, an apple, and a pear. The outside pockets of the cooler bag is filled with sunscreen, a wallet, and a pair of sunglasses. The bag is placed inside a red car and the car door is open revealing green grass in the background.

A seemingly simple task but being prepared Sunday night will leave you less stressed Monday morning. Planning ahead means you can take more time for yourself in the morning and head out on time. Koolatron’s 14 Quart Portable Soft Sided 12 Volt Cooler Bag is the perfect item to help you get ready. Pack your lunch the night with this convenient cooler bag. Just plug it in overnight using the optional AC Adapter and place all the items you need for lunch inside. Once you are in your vehicle, you can plug this cooler into the 12 Volt plug in your car or truck to keep your lunch cool on your commute.  As an added feature, this cooler bag has multiple exterior pockets for extra storage - perfect glasses or a notebook. Keeping these things together and being prepared in this way, crosses something off your to-do list before Monday morning even begins.

2. Start your Monday morning off right with a hot cup of coffee.
