Enjoy Monday Again
Is it time to enjoy Monday again? If I were to ask you what your favorite day of the week is, who would emphatically say, “MONDAY”? I’m sure there’s probably someone, but I’m willing to go to Vegas on the idea that not many would say they love Monday. So are we to just wave the white flag and accept that it will be this way until the end of time? Sounds miserable to me. Let’s change our Monday so we enjoy our Monday again! No more Monday blues!
The hate for Monday begins Sunday night, right? You realize the weekend is over. You start thinking about the commute, the list of things to start and/or finish for the upcoming week. It’s hard to find the motivation to get excited. The simple thing to do is to keep this up, but life is too short to dedicate a whole day to dread. Here are some ideas on how to help get rid of the Monday blues.
Start your week with a new healthy breakfast to enjoy Monday again!
Give yourself something to look forward to on Monday morning by kicking it off with a new smoothie recipe, a bowl of fresh fruit or whatever you enjoy. It needs to be healthy so your body is fueled appropriately and ready to go.
Take time on Friday to clean your office and enjoy Monday again.
Taking 15 minutes on Friday to straighten up your office will be well worth it when you walk into an organized office on Monday opposed to a disaster with leftover piles from last week.
Clean your car and enjoy Monday again!
Commuting is bad enough. Don’t do it in a filthy car.
Make time for laughter!
Designate a few minutes every Monday to laugh. Find your favorite comedy sketches, jokes or blooper reels on your phone or computer. Laughter will dispel those blues!
Make a point to serve someone on Mondays!
Whether it’s a co-worker, stranger, family member, etc. make a point to find an opportunity to serve on Mondays. Something simple like buying a co-worker their favorite lunch beverage or treat. It will give Mondays a new purpose for you.
Schedule a walk on Mondays.
If you have the type of job that you can sneak away for lunch or for a few minutes another time in the day, go for a walk!
During the commute to work, listen to a motivational book or lecture!
That’s a great way to kick off your week!
These are just a few ideas. The point is to find what works for you so that you can go from Monday blues to maybe, dare I say it, looking forward to Mondays! It’s worth a shot!
