Like many of you I used to dread Monday’s. The weekend always felt like it went by too fast. Monday’s often felt long and drawn out; I also noticed I was more exhausted and frankly uninspired on Monday’s. I would desperately want the day to be over.
But now I look forward to Monday. Monday might be my second favorite day of the week; after Friday. I know, I know, that sounds crazy, but it’s true. I haven’t always felt this way. I used to live every day waiting for the weekend to start. That was pre-COVID-19.
So what changed? It’s all about perspective. I’ve had time to reflect and now I see Monday as an opportunity to start fresh and happy. It represents an entire week’s worth of opportunities.
Even when I’m having the Mondayest of Monday’s; it’s not so bad.
So cheers to having the most productive Monday! Making it through a Monday productively is something to celebrate! What do you think about Mondays? Are they just “ehh” or an opportunity for a new beginning or do-over?
