Mondays Don’t Have To Suck

What is it about Mondays that brings on the eye rolls?  Don’t vomit, but I truly think that we should look at Monday as a fresh start.  Sure, it means that the weekend is over, but we all knew it was going to happen.  And while it may be sad to say goodbye to a fabulous weekend, it can also be exciting to say hello to Monday.

Here are my top 3 ways to make your Mondays better.

1.  Get a new gig.
Yeah, easier said than done.  But if you MAJORLY dread going back to work every single Monday, then I’d say you need a change.  And making that change may not be as complicated as you assume.  Whether you make an abrupt change or a gradual one, you can totally make it happen.  Watch this video of mine about considering less traditional jobs.  Maybe that will give you a little shove in the right direction.

2.  Schedule something enjoyable every Monday.
Give yourself a reason to look forward to Mondays.  Schedule your favorite exercise class on Mondays, save your fave TV shows to watch on Mondays or make Mondays a date night.  Even if you spend the first part of your Monday at work, you know you’ve got something fun lined up for afterwards.

3.  Write about your weekend.
Write a Facebook post, complete with pictures, all about the great weekend you had (annoying to some, but most folks like knowing about your adventures).  Or simply make a list of your 3 favorite things about your weekend.  Either way, you’ll be expressing your gratitude, which is a great way to make any day go better, not just Mondays.
