Anyone have a case of the Mondays?
There are 2 ways to look at Monday, you can be enslaved to it and be cranky all day or you can embrace it and start your week off with a bang. The first view is so much easier and seems to be much more popular. This really just means you now have one less day in the week to get done what you need to do and Tuesday now becomes your Monday.
I have often dreaded Mondays. Weekend is over and now back to work.
I haven’t always used my days or my time effectively which has resulted in less production, less success and ultimately 52 less opportunities in the year to have a great day.
If we tell ourselves it’s Monday and Mondays are bad then it only make sense that our day will go according to our mental state.
Once I decided to start taking my Mondays back things started falling into place for me. I started using Mondays as my day to shine. Starting the week off with a clean(ish) house, a nice outfit, wake up a little earlier (not a lot, but a little) so not to rush. This changed my mindset for the entire week.
We are creatures of habit and if we fall into bad ones, it’s hard to break out. Make sure your habits are ones that are working in your favour and not against you. Life is hard enough as it is.
Hitting snooze Monday morning and setting yourself up for a bad day is all on you. There is no one to blame but yourself (and we’ve all been there). Make a habit out of liking Monday again and you have just given yourself 14.3% higher chance of enjoyment.
It’s worth a shot right?
