Ladies and Gents, it is time to change our perspective on Mondays. Time to stop whining and moaning on Sunday night about how you hate the dreaded monster we associate with Monday and turn the tables. Life is too short to hate waking up after a weekend of being away from the office only to be miserable. It is time to take Monday by the horns and slay like it is Friday!
Prepare Your Schedule for the Week
If you already have your planner marked up and ready for the week, then you are ahead of the game. If you don't have a planner, then you need to get off your butt and buy one at Target or OfficeMax. Keeping yourself organized and knowing your week ahead of time will save you from scrambling around like a crazy person at your office on Monday.
Write Down Your Weekly & Daily Goals
Everyday has a purpose, even Mondays believe it or not. On Sunday night before bed, write down in your journal or planner your daily goals and an overall weekly goal. This will make you feel large-and-in-charge as this technique will help you stay focused and motivated.
To make sure you are not running late in the morning after you drag yourself out of bed, make sure the night before you have your outfit ready and pressed, your lunch prepped and your briefcase already packed and organized. This will give you extra time to drink some coffee due to not rushing and have a peaceful moment before heading out the door
The outlook of the day is determined by your attitude, so think positively. What personally helps me is having an inspirational quote of the day or even a playlist for my ride into work to get myself pumped.
