Monday is a dreaded day for many, it's the beginning of a new working week and the weekend fun is all over.
Picture this: it's Sunday night, you've switched off over the weekend and spent time socialising, but now the thought of work tomorrow is playing on your mind.
Even for those who enjoy work, everyone gets the 'Sunday Scaries.' In fact, a recent LinkedIn survey found that 66% of professionals say they experience this feeling, especially since the start of the pandemic.
These 'Sunday Scaries' are no good. They fill us with anxiety and can rob us of our valuable time to recharge. No one wants this.
So why not change your perspective?
Grab Monday with both hands and take it as an opportunity. It's a new week, a fresh start to do something amazing! See it in a positive light.
How can you make the most out of Monday?
Make lists - note down what you want to achieve this week, and how you're going to do it.
Create a schedule - planning out your week allows you to do as much as you can. It's good to balance your work life with your social life.
Affirmations - note down 3 reasons you're grateful, 3 reasons you're happy, say what you hope to attract and achieve!
Be Kind - not only to others but to yourself. If you don't achieve everything you planned IT'S OKAY! You can try again next week. Don't be too hard on yourself.
So take this in and let it help switch up your mindset! Use the first day of the week to set the tone, and make sure it's as productive as possible. Then, the rest of the week will feel like a breeze.
Monday's blues certainly won't be in your schedule. Make the most out of the day and set yourself up for an awesome week.
You can do anything you put your mind to!
