Monday Morning Blues

Have the Monday Morning Blues? Here are some good ways to combat them:

• Have the first thing you do on Monday be something you like (10 minutes of pilates, relaxing with a book, going for a walk, etc.)

• Get your lunch and clothes ready the night before so you can set the alarm fifteen or thirty minutes later.

• Step out in the sun for a bit. Can you sip your coffee or eat breakfast outside?

• Start with a swim—this often seems to wake me up.

• Meet up with some friends for a walk or a workout that you enjoy.

Is there something else that you do that helps you get started on Monday?

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.

    I like looking forward to something that will happen Monday night (like a great meal I’ve planned to cook, or a date with my DVR for some of my favorite shows) to get me through the craziness that is Monday.
