Yay! It’s Monday!
I know, I know. Too perky. Way too perky.
But that’s me! And hopefully by the end of this article, it’ll be you, too. Why? Because there’s nothing like feeling great on Monday morning. So here are 3 quick ways to get your week off to a great start, right now.
- Make a plan. What obligations do you have this week and to whom? Having a well-laid-out calendar is not only rewarding, but brings peace and a more relaxed state of mind. So list out all of your scheduled meetings, special events with family and friends, and any deadlines that are set for this week. Add some time for yourself and remember that all-important flex time as well. Don’t give this exercise longer than it needs. Three to five minutes should be long enough to check your calendar and identify any necessary changes.
- Envision a great week. Utilize the power of visualization to imagine your week turning out exactly the way you want. What would that look like? Picture it now and start making plans toward that end. What would need to be added to your schedule? What would you take away? Again, 3 to 5 minutes is plenty of time to complete this exercise.
- Count your blessings. Sincere appreciation for your life, your job, your family, your friends, and all the things good in your life will put you in a good mood for sure, and being in a great mood is definitely a good way to start the week. So take 3 minutes to just jot down 30 things you appreciate.
If you’ve completed just one of these suggested exercises you’re on your way to a fabulous week. Enjoy!
Until next time,
