5 Reasons You Should Start Loving Mondays AgainBy
That awful moment when you hear the sound of your alarm at 7 a.m. and realize that you have to get up and get ready for work. This can cast a scary veil on your entire world. Ugh, it’s Monday.
For many years, Mondays have been considered the worst day of the week because of the negative perception that people have of them. To many, Monday represents the beginning of another work life balance or lack thereof. According to researchers at The Telegraph, Monday mornings are so depressing, that on average, we don’t crack our first smile until 11:16 a.m. But what if you could do something to change that and start loving Mondays again? Here are five ways:
Start by changing your mindset- We’ve been manufactured to believe that Monday is when we should be our most productive, but Mondays shouldn’t be the time to get through our entire to-do list. Monday mornings are a perfect time to do things that can make the rest of the week more productive, such as organizing some files, or clarifying goals for the rest of the week.
You can start fresh and find your motivation again– Wish you didn’t spend so much money over the weekend? Or eat that slice of chocolate cake? Then Monday is a great day to start over, wipe your slate clean and go for your goals.
Monday Night TV is the best– The Big Bang Theory, 2 Broke Girls, The Voice, Dancing with the Stars, the list goes on…
Mondays are the best for grabbing a bargain– Cyber Monday falls on November 28 this year. So save your Christmas shopping list and make the most of this Monday steal where all your favorite retailers will have some great deals.
Only four more sleeps until Friday- No I’m not trying to put Mondays down with this one, but we all know Fridays are the best. And guess what? Just four more sleeps and you’ll have that Friday feeling again!
So the next time Monday morning rolls around, forget feeling down and celebrate instead.
