Motivational Monday

As someone who enjoys my free time, Mondays always signified the end of freedom. Weekends would serve as a respite, a time for adventure, fun and relaxation. And then I would get a bad case of the Mondays.

You know those mornings you wake up thinking you can take on the world? I don’t believe I’ve ever had that feeling on a Monday.

But with this new lease on life that I am taking, I realize that I need to work on my outlook on several different aspects that I might not have enjoyed before. So instead of looking at Monday as something to just get through, I’m going to see it as a challenge to begin the week with an open heart and an open mind.

I’m also going to take some time each weekend to restore my body. I found this great list from @ElephantJournal to avoid burnout.

I think most of the things listed above are tasks we can all embrace and work on. But for me, I find #10 to be the hardest. We all have bad habits. And that’s what I am working on during this 30 day challenge I have set for myself. So far, it’s day seven and I haven’t felt this relaxed and personally accomplished in a long time. And I think it’s because instead of fearing every step, I’m learning to embrace the inevitable and face things head on.
