The weekend’s over; it’s back to the grind.
I happen to love what I do, yet the weekends have always been precious and even more so when school is back in session.
I blink and they’re over.
Whatever your particular motivation is for despising Monday mornings, you’re not alone.
It’s such a tough day of the week that Monday now has its own hashtag, #MondayMotivation, and people are sharing some pretty awesome things to help get your new work week off on the right foot.
If Mondays are a tough day to hit the gym, get to work, or just get up out of bed I’ve got something they may help you.
Don’t waste your Sundays!
Isn’t it crazy that we can spend so much time on Sunday dreading Monday?
Here are two very different ways to spend your Sunday evenings:
•Plan some evening fun. For some of us, Sunday evenings are sacred do-nothing nights. But if you schedule an early dinner with friends, a movie date, or an evening picnic at a park, then you give yourself a positive focus for the day.
•Spend a few hours planning your Monday. For some people, diving in to their work week on Sunday evening is a highly productive and satisfying use of their time. For managers and leaders, you give yourself a leg up on everything that meets you Monday morning, and you can see what’s expected of you and your team. There’s an incredible amount of time wasted on Mondays simply catching up on where you left off the previous week. You can avoid hours of this if you prepare on Sunday evening. And you’ll wake up Monday morning feeling calm and may actually want to get out of bed.
Try it and let me know if it made any difference at all in your Monday and work week.
If this did nothing for you and you still despise this day of week than I hope you can at least look on the bright side. Monday only comes once a week. 😆
