The start of yet another week… Happy Monday guys! I hope you all have a great day and enjoy these last few Mondays as summer begins to wind down to a close. As you read this, I’ll be on my way down to Ocean City, Maryland to visit my friend, Haley. My best friends Alex, Alessia, and I decided to take a lil’ road trip and venture off to somewhere new and visit our friend Haley ,who stayed there for the summer.
In today’s post, I wanted to chat about Mondays. Mondays seriously get such a bad wrap all of the time. I mean think about it, out of all of the days of the week Mondays are known as the worst. Everyone loves Fridays – we can even handle Wednesdays (*sometimes). But Monday, no one can even try to deny – Mondays suck.
Mondays are the oatmeal raisin cookies that you thought were chocolate chip. Mondays are that puddle you parked next to, that you now have no choice but to step in. Mondays are the people who request for you to play games with them on Facebook every other day. Mondays are everything that happiness is not. Now I can’t say I disagree with any of this, but I do believe that you can make your Monday a bit better if you just push yourself to try. Here are a few of the things I like to do to have a better Monday:
1. Wake Up With A Positive Mindset
I just wrote a whoooooole post about this, here. Having a productive morning can lead to such a productive day. Wake up a bit early, get some things done and internalize how good your day is going to be. Waking up with a negative attitude because it is a Monday isn’t going to do you any good. Fuel your body with a great breakfast and get ready to start your day on a high note.
A Monday can be a lot better if you are not awake for half of it. Taking a nap allows your body to get rest and gives you a break from well, Monday. I suggest taking a nap ranging anywhere between 45 minutes to 7 hours, whatever works best for you.
3. Have Fun!
It’s Monday, be happy! A fresh start to a brand new week where you can conquer whatever it is that you set your mind to.I personally don’t mind Mondays because they are like a brand new slate, a start to a new week that can go however your attitude leads it to. Be sure to treat yo’self on Mondays. If you really hate the day so much, do something that you enjoy to take away the Monday pain. Buy a little snack from your favorite food stop, hang out with friends, and have fun!
4.Help Out Others
Unite with all of the other Monday haters out there and help each other out! Hold the door for someone, buy someone a cup of coffee, just generally take time out of your day to be courteous towards others. While you may be in a bad mood just because it is a Monday, other people may be in a bad mood because of something much more serious/important.
5. Remember That You’re Alive
How sucky would a Monday be if you weren’t alive to live it? As much as a Monday can suck, at least you’re still here to take part in it! Be thankful that you are healthy and well on this Monday and embrace it! There are some people who aren’t lucky enough to even have to opportunity to say they hate Mondays.
I hope you all have an awesome Monday, hopefully this post can help add a bit of positivity to your day and lead you off to a great week! Wednesday’s post is up in the air, because (like I said) I will be away and am not sure what the wifi situation will be like- but be sure to check back Friday for a definite post! 🙂
