#Monday mornings are hard. Some harder than others, however I try to motivate myself to be productive on a Monday because when I have a 'bad' Monday it seems to have a knock on effect for the rest of the week.
Why do we dislike Mondays so much?
There are lots of songs about Mondays; 'Manic Monday' by #thebangles 'I don't like Mondays' by #theboomtownrats, and 'Rainy Days and Mondays' by #carpenters to name a few. They all associate Mondays as a bad thing; It's the end of the weekend, back to work, back to school, back to the boring humdrum of life. This creates a very negative feeling and outlook. Immediately we see Mondays as something to dread!
What if we retrain our brains to think of Mondays as a fresh start, a new chapter, new possibilities, exciting opportunities to seek out, rather than the boring, monotonous, dull, routines that we have day in day out!
It is up to us how we decided how to live our lives and that includes how we see Mondays.
How will you be living your's?
