“Do what you love and you’ll never have a problem with Monday’s”
I get it – today is not Monday. Not going mad, promise!
But the dreaded Sunday evening feeling is just hovering over all of us at the moment. I’m not sure whether it is the muggy weather or we’re just awaiting a Summer that is really trying but not quite there yet. But it’s that thought of ‘Oh fuck, here comes Monday again. I have to wait a WHOLE week until the weekend where I can lay in bed watching Netflix for two days straight’ (I know I am not the only one). It is like a black cloud of doom, an annoying buzz hanging over you, a lingering thought that no matter how hard you try, just will not go away…
But waking up on a Monday morning in a bad mood is enough to ruin anyone’s week. Especially after everything that has been going on recently, I think now, more than ever, we have to proactively manage our time and drive positive thoughts as much as possible. And, though it is only a thought, this is one of the simplest, easiest ways to change your entire perspective of the weeks commencing after your great weekends.
It really doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom, because actually, if you change your perspective of Monday’s, it can have the complete opposite effect and make for a great week, ready for all of your accomplishments, goals and plans to commence.
Start your week positively, hopefully and motivated. You can do this, ready for next Monday and Monday’s forevermore. This is why…
It’s an opportunity to start again
You have a fresh week to make changes, start something new and commit to a positive week. It signals the beginning, and a new day and opportunity to create a better week ahead than the last. This could be the best week of your life! Not only that, but if you are hating your routine, Monday is a great way to kick start doing something about that. Find your balance, manage your time better and start the week right so that you are able to enjoy your working week more.
Most productive day
Unless you hate your job (which is probably another reason you hate Monday’s), Monday is a great day to get stuck in to your work and your week. From the weekend break, you have a better focus on the week ahead, and are able to use Monday to guide the productivity for the rest of the week. Use Monday’s more as motivation, rather than an ‘ugh back to reality’ type mindset. This is your chance to kick off the best week yet – use it wisely!
You’re ‘refreshed’ from the weekend
Unless you’ve been on a heavy sesh, Monday’s offer rebalance to your life. It offers that discipline, organisation and the motivational ‘kick’ that you need to finish your goals. You’ve caught up with your social and personal life, and you are rested with new energy and a positive head space to start the week right. Plus, to really enjoy the rest of a weekend, you have to balance it out with some hard work and determination.
The gift of a positive Monday is a crazy phenomenon, but practice makes perfect! Rewire those negative thoughts, ignore those moany comments and appreciate Monday’s for what they really are. Make the most of them! Ready for next Monday to commence as well.
