How I Made Monday My Favourite Day Of the Week
I’m most definitely sure that I am not the only person who at one stage of their lives would just absolutely dread every Monday morning. Even though I was well aware that Monday was just another day of the week, yet I had no clue why I used to dread this particular day of the week so much? It made no sense to me, I often asked myself was I just pretending to dread Monday because everyone else around me used to hate Mondays? It’s weird, but I saw this as an opportunity for me to change my mindset, attitude and thought process of a particular day, and I can now honestly say, I look forward to every Monday morning, and you can too!
Often we find ourselves attaching feelings and views to certain things and we don’t even realise how strong we get attached to this specific ‘thing’. In my case, I found myself hating Mondays for a reason I’m still unsure of. Try and be as open minded to switching your views on certain attachments you have to certain things. How I feel about today and every other day is my choice and my choice only, it is my responsibility to show up for myself and determine the attitude I would like to bring to the day at hand!
This seems weird, I know! But actually since implementing various strategies and consistency within my habits over the past two years, Monday is since my favourite day of the week and I literally love it! I began to implement small habits into my Monday morning routine after realising I just for some bizarre reason decided to hate a specific day of the week? My answer to this hatred of Mondays was all down to my attitude, attitude, attitude.
Excellence is not an act but a habit, and so I just started to do 2-3 little things for myself every Monday to ensure I was really looking forward to what that day had in store for me. I know I love to train, I love coffee, I love listening to my regular podcasts, so I took these things and made them essential habits that are now engraved into my Monday routine – I realised it’s the attitude that you apply to anything in life, be it a specific goal of yours, be it a relationship, be it a new business venture or in my specific case.. MONDAY.
Monday is literally just another day in the week, implement small habits that you can consistently implement over a prolonged period of time and introduce things you actually enjoy doing. Personally I love training and drinking coffee, so these are my small daily Monday habits, but you may like something completely different and that is perfectly fine, just find something you genuinely enjoy and promise yourself you will treat and prioritise yourself to this every single Monday!
If you are to take one thing from this, as I mentioned above, just try and be as open minded to switching your views on certain attachments you have to certain things in your life. How I feel about today and every other day is my choice and my choice only, it is my responsibility to show up for myself and determine the attitude I would like to bring to that particular day.
I’m hoping this can help just one person change their perception on something they may dread, and just a gentle reminder that sometimes our egos may find it hard to change our opinions or switch our viewpoints on certain attachments we may have to a specific thing, but overcoming your ego self in these situations is important- this just means you’re probably growing as a person, which in my opinion is pretty cool!
Hope you enjoyed!
