It’s inevitable: Sunday starts winding down and the Monday blues start rolling in.
Personally, Sundays used to be filled with anxiety for me, but it wasn’t until I started implementing these 5 quick things that my perspective of Monday started to change and I began to look forward to the fresh start of the week. I began to embrace Monday rather than resent it!
Mondays are meant to be filled with new opportunities, new goals to crush, and a new fresh start and there’s nothing better than that!
Here’s 5 things that have changed my life and helped me embrace the new week.
Attitude: Bring your best attitude and mindset into the week. Make a list of the things you are looking forward to, the goals you want to hit, the things you will accomplish. When you train your brain to be looking for these things, you are setting yourself up to be successful with them and your Fridays will turn into a day where you get to celebrate your wins!
Prepare: There’s nothing worse than a manic Monday. Spend 15-20 mins laying out your calendar for the week. Make sure you have all your appointments laid out. If you need to move anything around you have more than enough time to do so. You’re going into your week with a clear understanding of where you need to be when. You will feel so refreshed and ready!
Meal Prep: So many people get so overwhelmed with their nutrition because they don’t spend any time preparing. Just remember this: “A failure to plan is a plan to fail.” Just take an hour of your Sunday and prep your meals. You will feel so much more motivated and will be able to resist those temptations in the office when they come your way…because believe me, they will be there!
Get Adequate Rest: Don’t spend your Sunday evening staying up watching the end of that Netflix series until 1am. Get adequate rest and relaxation so that you can go into your Monday feeling refreshed and ready to go. Which leads me into my final tip…
Get up and Get Moving: not everyone is able to get to the gym before work so if that’s not you, get up, don’t hit the snooze button, spend time stretching and moving. If you can’t get to the gym, just set the clock for 10 mins and stretch. I usually allow 10-15 mins for this so that I’m not behind. This simple step eliminates you feeling rushed and anxious and sets your Monday up for success!!
Hope you guys have a wonderful start to your week!!!
Yours in health,
