MONDAYS MATTER


Monday.

I know that a lot of people are not a huge fan of Monday because after a fun weekend no one is ready for the hustle of the week to come but Mondays are important! Without the proper attitude on Monday, the rest of your week will be lousy. Mondays need to be started off positively just like you need to start your mornings.

After the unhealthy habits of the weekend, Mondays are like a reset day. You can erase all the bad habits and start over on Monday but the first day of the week can really make or break the rest of the days to come. Mondays are the start of my fitness and health week. After getting active rest on Saturday and Sunday I make sure to start Mondays with a powerful workout and healthy eating habits!

If you are motivated to do good things on Monday you will be motivated to do good things the rest of the week!

Start off Monday with good habits that will carry on for the rest of the week. Whatever your goals are for the week to come start them on Monday. I can not stress how important it is to start your week with good habits.

Let's say you started off your Monday eating horrid foods as well as not working out. On Tuesday you'll feel less motivated to make good habits because you'll feel like you have already messed up what you thought might be a perfect week. So, when you get to Friday, your week will have been wasted and your goals will remain uncompleted.

This is why we need to make good choices the very first day of the week! So that you can feel powerful and inspired to reach your goals! This doesn't only apply to fitness and health matters, by the way! You can apply this Monday mindset to school and other things going on in your life.

The key to being motivated on Monday is knowing that Monday is the foundation for the rest of your week!

A good Monday equals a good week! I get excited for Mondays because it's a clean slate with lots of opportunities. Mondays to me are really no longer a dreadful day. I actually kind of like Mondays because I have redefined what they mean. They use to be a day I didn't like because nothing would ever seem to go right but now because I have a more positive mindset they aren't so bad.

Find ways to do good things on Monday and you will start to see how much better your week will become! It's all about a positive mindset on Monday and making good choices right from the get-go! This is why Mondays are so very important!

  1. Great post! I like Mondays, too--I'm always excited to start off the week well (even though I'm rarely as productive as I'd like . . .).

I definitely find that when I pursue healthy eating habits and running workouts on Mondays that I have more discipline in the rest of the week. Thank you for articulating this! It's a great reminder! :-) <3

  14. okay but Monday is one of my fave days of the week! and it used to never be. I used to dread it.
    but now I'm learning to accept it and thrive on it because it's beautiful and I'm getting so much done.
    here's to Monday and all the promises and joys it brings!
