From the time we are young, we’ve learned to start dreading Monday mornings around 5pm on Sunday night. “Sunday Funday” … “Working for the Weekend” and phrases like that just reinforce our deep hatred for the “first” day of the week.
WHYYY do we put so much stress into Mondays?? Monday didn’t ask for it! And honestly, because we have had these chronically negative thoughts and emotions about it, it’s making everything just SO.MUCH.WORSE!!!
**THIS IS A MINDSET ISSUE!!!**
What if you never fully realized what day of the week it really was? What if Monday was just another day of the week? What if we could just flip the switch an turn off this chronic thinking that Monday was ‘bad’?
I’d like to help you feel better about Mondays NOW, so here’s 3 tips for switching your MONDAY MINDSET!
- If you have to set your alarm, make it something soothing. Birds chirping, beautiful classical music or a fun song that makes you feel really good. When you hear the alarm, say “I’m so excited for today!” (even if you don’t believe it yet! you’ll get there!)
- During your morning routine, talk yourself into having that great day. Talk aloud or in your head saying things like, “My drive to work is going to be smooth and fun!” “I’m going to crush that meeting today!” “I have plenty of time to get everything I need done.” Again, even if you don’t totally believe it, we’ve GOT to start re-programming the chronic thinking that’s not been so helpful all these years. Trust me.. see what happens.
- If a moment of contrast occurs, like a kid spills their cereal on the floor, take a deep, calming breath, and laugh!!! Laughter will immediately raise your vibration, calm the energy of the room and help you see the situation in a more positive way. Every moment where we can ‘flip the switch’ like this is moving the momentum of your day towards ease and fun!
