3 Reasons Why Everyone Should Love Monday
If you’re dreading the start of the work week, chances are you are not making the most of your Mondays. I know it’s really “in” to bash Mondays and celebrate the weekend, but something about this mentality just doesn’t seem right. I believe we should look forward to every day and live with passion and enthusiasm. If you’re subject to the Monday Moans, as I like to call them, then this post is for you. Mondays used to be my least favorite day.
I lived for the weekend and hoped the week would fly by so I could relax and enjoy myself. But the truth is… that’s not really living. Trying to get through five days to enjoy the other two is pretty pathetic. After praying and thinking about it some more, I realized that Mondays really are the BEST and every day should be enjoyed. So here’s my two-sense on making the most of your Mondays, and the 3 reasons why everyone should love Monday.
1. A Fresh Start
It doesn’t take much to learn to love Mondays. Honestly, it’s just a shift in perspective. Instead of dwelling on all the things you dislike about Monday, focus on what you love and all the opportunities you have. Are you making the most of your Mondays? I love that Monday always feel like a fresh start. Monday is my day to make healthy food choices, exercise, and just get back on track. I love Monday because it feels like a day full of promise and possibilities.
2. Made for Moving
You have to agree that there is an energy in Monday mornings. I love it.
Monday is a time to take action and get things done. There is a different pulse on Mondays that makes me want to move and accomplish things. It is a day for working on projects, exercising, organizing, and being active. My mom always says,
”When you have a lot to do, you get a lot done.”
I think that’s true. When you have that extra pressure from all your responsibilities, it gets you moving. Monday is a day for work and since there’s a lot to do, I think it’s a get stuff done day.
3. Monday’s Are for Motivation
I’m sure we’re all familiar with #MotivationMonday.
Yup. Monday is the day that everyone needs a little motivation to give them that pep in their step. If you aren’t a fan of Mondays, perhaps tuning into this motivation is just what you need. I think it’s great that so many people are willing to offer encouragement for the week. Personally, I always look forward to Mondays because that is when all my favorite bloggers share a new post. For me, Monday is a fresh dose of inspiration.
I also want to mention, that you should love what you do. I realize this isn’t necessarily a reason to love Monday, but it’s a reason to love life, and Mondays are a part of life. I love my job. Because I am doing what I am passionate about, I wake up excited for the day. I really look forward to waking up and drinking coffee while blogging. I love experimenting in the kitchen and creating healthy meals. I love learning about health and fitness, and exercising, and sharing my experiences with you. I honestly believe that if you’re doing what you love, then you won’t dread Mondays. Monday is a work day, so if you love your work, you’ll love Mondays.
I hope that this post helped give you some perspective and maybe… even if you don’t love Mondays, you can hate them a bit less. It may take time to adjust from a Monday Moaner to a Monday Motivator, but you’ll get there. 😉
