Motivation Monday

Not my picture, don’t know where it came from, but BRING IT Monday!

There are just some days that we need more motivation than usual to get through the span of 24 hours. Mondays seem to be that day for most people. Granted, there are breakthrough times when we need to hold hands and sing kumbaya with motivation, but consistently, Mondays are rough.

So what do you do when you have the blahs? What do you do to get yourself up and moving, to face the day with a glimmer of a smile? Here are five things you can try to kick your Monday mojo into gear.

  1. Set an alarm across the room so you have to get up to turn it off. Once up, take a moment to stretch. Maybe do some simple yoga poses. Stretching will help you ease into the day, and wake your body up gently.
  2. Read your bible. Even if it’s for five minutes. Starting your day reading an uplifting chapter can really carry you through the day with a positive attitude and a go-get-em’ attitude.
  3. Journal. I know, I know, this is my answer for just about everything. It really does help, though. It starts your mind off on the right foot for the day. It helps you organize your day, and get your mind ready to focus on work, or whatever else you might have to do.
  4. Pray, meditate, or have a moment of silence. This sets your mind straight, and lets you give your troubles away. 
  5. Listen to a sermon or motivational message while you get ready. This, again, gets your mind where it needs to be. You will start your day on a positive note, and hopefully be able to carry the positivity with you through the day.

I know, it’s Monday. Mondays stink. It, for most, is the hardest day of the week. But, try one or more of the ideas above. They just might help you get happy, motivated, and able to face that Monday like the fierce, positive person you are.

Again, not my picture, but so true!
