Falling in love with Monday’s

Alexis Brazil

I used to absolutely dread Monday mornings. I mean how is it that the weekend lasts for only 48 hours and before we know it we’re faced with another “5am Monday morning.”  How you start your day can very well determine how it will go and even how it will end. It wasn’t until I realized how to balance my schedule and manage my time that I was truly able to wave my “case of the Monday’s” goodbye forever! I compiled a list of hinges that have helped me become a Monday Warrior. 

AFFIRMATIONS

Kicking off your morning with self-affirmations can be a major game changer for your entire day. It can up that confidence and help you accomplish so much more because you'll feel the strength to do it. I know I've had so many mornings when I just wake up in a funk, and that messes up my attitude for an entire day.

  

WORKING OUT

Doesnt matter if you do it in the morning or at night as long as you do it. I recently turned over a new leaf and decided to put my best foot forward and workout 3-4 times a week and when I tell you it is an absolute feeling of refreshment! It absolutely reduces your stress, releases those tied up endorphins you’ve been holding hostage. Not to mention the added bonus of looking your best this summer.

 

WARDROBE

What you wear definitely plays part in how you feel. Get up, get dressed and get confident. I used to wear a lot of black, and I mean ALOT! I was almost hiding myself away by wearing such a dark color constantly I felt like the vibrancy I used to carry was being tucked away. However I also recently changed that. I am in all kinds of color and prints and even fur these days depending on the weather. My point is get dressed! Make yourself look amazing so you can also feel amazing and watch ho it changes everything. 

 

Its easy to catch a case of the Monday’s but the real work comes when you’re falling in love with Monday’s. Sometimes without realizing we’re falling back in love with ourselves.
