Monday Morning Blues

Woman turning off alarm clock

Monday morning can be tough. You wake up and know you have the whole week ahead. To make Monday feel a little better, pick a day of the week where your morning, afternoon, or evening (depending on your work schedule) is all your own. In that time slot pick something to do that will excite you and keep you motivated all week.

You can pick anything that gives you joy. Maybe you select one night for family dinner night, or movie night, or you have an adventure planned where you try something new in your state. Maybe you have friends over for game night.

Just remember that in addition to work we need to have some fun in life. So combat the Monday morning blues with knowing that you have fun planned in your week ahead.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
