reasons to love monday

reasons to love monday

No, I have not lost my mind. Although it may seem like it! Even when I was a stay at home mom, Monday had a negative connotation. As a working mom, I cannot figure out how Monday was still an “awful” day even though I was not working. Especially when most of the time, I had nothing pressing on my plate!

Often Monday signifies the beginning of the work week. There is a saying of “when you love your job, you will never work a day in your life”. Unfortunately, that is not true for everyone. Some of us are very lucky to have a job that we love though!

Currently, I treat myself to coffee and a blueberry or poppy-seed muffin on Monday mornings. This is the perfect pick-me-up for the beginning of the week! At least in my humble opinion, ha ha!

reasons to love monday:

  1. Treat Monday as a clean slate. If you read my first post, you will know that I love a clean slate. Monday is the perfect day to hit refresh!
  2. Monday is the perfect day to create and set new goals. When I write my goals out for the week or to-do list, it always starts with Monday. I like to use Sunday as a family rest day and get back to the grind on Monday.
  3. You have an entire week to accomplish what you need to get finished. There are five perfect working days to get things done as well as a weekend if necessary. Try not to stress about getting everything completed on Monday.
  4. Coffee is the most stimulating on a Monday morning. Or is this just me? After a busy weekend, I need that extra little pick me up.
  5. It is a great day to have a great day. Did you know that I often get the best news on Mondays? While you should tell yourself that it is a great day to have a great day everyday, it is a little extra special when that day is Monday.
  6. The idea of hating Monday is just an illusion. Monday accounts for 1/7th of our life! Let’s not waste it.

    Motivating post! I liked all of your points especially that it is a clean slate. I love clean slates!

    • Thank you so much Stephanie! I am definitely a fan of clean slates and love to think of Monday as one.

    • I am so glad to hear that I am not the only one! Mondays have such a horrible stigma and I really hope to change that ♥

  • I love this and I actually love Mondays. It’s my day to get caught up and how I start monday is usually how my week goes. Thanks for this most! And yes, coffee is way better on monday! 🙂

    • That is so wonderful to hear! I am glad that you love Mondays ♥ Also, I feel the same way. How I begin my Monday is usually a sign of how the rest of my week will go.

  • I love this list! Monday is a start over, you can have a completely different week than you had the week before and it all depends on your Monday attitude.

    • I absolutely agree! I try my hardest to be as positive as possible on Monday so that the rest of my week follows suit ♥

  • Good perspective! Coffee on Monday morning definitely tastes the best!

    • Thank you Jenna! There is something about Monday morning coffee 😉

  • Patricia Conte

    LOVE the positive attitude and this list! I especially like the first on your list to “treat Monday as a clean slate!” Enjoy the week!

    • Thank you so much Patricia! Being positive truly makes the day so much better, especially on a Monday. I hope that you have a wonderful week as well!

  • Marissa Pedersen

    Great attitude! Mondays don’t have to be such a dreaded day.

  • haha i love this! I actually dont mind mondays, but I work from home so all the days feel the same haha

    • Oh that must be fun working from home! How do you like it? I would love to be able to do that on occasion.

      • I love it! I hated working in an office though

        • That is wonderful to hear ♥ I can’t think of a way to be able to work from home at my current job… but maybe one day!

  • You have some very excellent points! I always try to think of Mondays as a fresh start!

    • Thank you so much Polly! Mondays are the perfect day for a fresh start ♥

  • Casey Lyn

    Haha these are great ideas! It is difficult to be motivated on Mondays, but important to value it! Thanks for sharing!

    • At my previous job I found myself absolutely dreading Mondays, so now I have made it my goal to look forward to them! Valuing Monday really helps!

  • Such a great perspective! I really need to start looking at Monday in a more positive way since it can set the tone for the rest of my week!

    • Thank you Whitney! Setting a positive tone for the week makes it go by so much better. I find myself looking forward to the week instead of dreading it.

  • Ya know…. I usually let myself splurge on Friday if I did well on my budget and got out of the house in time for a stop at a coffee stand. Maybe next week I’ll let myself splurge on a coffee on Monday and see if it gets my week off to a better start!

    • You will have to let me know how that goes! I love to treat myself on Mondays because it puts a little extra oomph to my week ♥
