I know, I know, it’s Monday, ewwww. But you may find that your attitude towards Mondays shift if you start your day with a grateful spirit. First of all, you’re still alive, and second of all, if you are lucky enough to be heading into work on this day, it means you have a job. There are some who would desperately change places with you, so even if your coworkers are driving you crazy, even if you feel stuck at your job, even if you can’t stand it, try to focus on what you do have. You have an income, you have a schedule in your life, you have something you can count on doing each day, waking up and going into work. It’s important to focus on the positives, even if you aren’t in love with your job 🙂
If you’re trying to create a sense of calm each morning, and stress less, develop a morning routine. Start each day the same way, and while it may take a bit of time for these habits to develop, if you keep at it, you’ll find that this is your everyday routine in no time.
Take one thing in your day to day activities and change it up. It doesn’t have to be something big, you can even just change how you drive in to work, just mix up your routine a bit.
If you struggle with unwinding for the day, create an evening schedule. You’ll find it easier to relax each night if you create a schedule. It can be a skin care routine, drinking a cup of tea, reading a book, and then going to bed, or whatever works best for you. Just try to limit time with a blue screen 🙂
