Monday Motivation

By  |  0 Comments

  Mondays can always be a little painful at times. No matter how much you love your job, the transition from weekend mode into work mode can sometimes be a little rocky. It is revealed that Monday depresses the most people compared to any other days of the week. Seems like there is a reason behind the term ‘Monday Blues’ after all.

Engaging in a conversation stimulates the mind enough to actually kick start it for the day. If you dive straight into your work the moment you reach the office, chances are your brain is still trying to ‘wake up’. Like a car engine, your brain needs to warm up before it can function optimally. Waking up earlier, getting some sunlight, or finding something to laugh about can freshen up your mind before you start work, so that you’ll get enough motivation and energy to face yet another demanding Monday.

What is it that keeps you going from Monday till Friday? Weekends! You’d probably be thinking about the weekend getaway, so why don’t you plan something for after work so that you have something to look forward to. Monday is probably just the start of a hard week ahead, so you deserve an exciting event at the end of the day to motivate you while you work. Monday doesn’t have to be the most painful day of the week; it is only so, if you focus on it. If you make it a habit to go home to relax every Monday evening, sooner or later you’d not see each Monday as a taxing day. If you feel that you’d be too exhausted for a night out, consider doing something at home; something relaxing. Taking a long bath while indulging in soothing music and a homemade aromatherapy session should lessen the stress you are facing at work or after a long weekend, partying.

As it is with other things in life, it is a matter of seeing the glass half empty or half full. You can be overwhelmed with all the duties and deadlines you are in charge of, or you can be enthusiastic about the responsibilities and goals thrown upon you. This one is a little tricky because it has a lot to do with mind over matter. Ask yourself: why does Monday have to be blue? Just because everyone says so? Well, it doesn’t have to be. Yes, you should ‘reprogram’ the way you see Monday. Monday may be the day we have to drag our feet back to work after an awesome weekend but if you look at it as the beginning of a great week ahead, the thought can empower you and propel you to a great start.
