We all know how Monday's can be. Maniacal. Morose. Messy. And More.
But we can change how we handle Mondays.
Start by transforming how you you think of the day.
Instead of Maniacal, Mondays become Melodic.
Now some Mondays may play like Bach or Beethoven, but others play more like Aerosmith or Coldplay. Listen for the melody of your Monday, and take your energy from it.
Instead of Morose, think Merry.
Give yourself three minutes to cry over your problems, then kick the blues out the door and tell them to stay away using a firm voice. Lock the door so they can't return. Plaster a smile on your face. Watch a funny YouTube video. Watch another if you haven't laughed out loud yet. Then get moving.
Messy? No. Methodical? Yes.
At least until you get going. Organize your thoughts instead of letting them run wild. Organize your desk if you left it in a mess. Read. Anything that works for you to let you focus after a wild and wooly weekend. Then you can start your Monday from a moment of clarity.
Think of Monday as breakfast . . . let it fuel your week.
And why is this blog post a little later than normal? I had some minor computer glitches going on.
It's Monday :)
