Mondays, ugh. An audible noise that I emit when I wake up on Monday morning. Or at least I used to, I used to hate Monday because it was the beginning of the week and I didn't want any of that.
(Me, dressing well on a Monday morning) (Yes, this is as good as it gets for me in snow)
I'm slowly changing the way I feel about Mondays. Sure it's not great that I have to get up a little earlier than I did on Sunday but when I've started doing something that really, really helps.
I have started viewing each Monday like January 1st or the first day of the New Year.
I'm making weekly goals for myself on Sunday night and setting myself up for a good week by cleaning my apartment on Sunday, doing a facial, a little light yoga, or painting my nails. Monotony kills me, I get bored really easily. So I tend to do things like get a new tattoo (only did this 3 times), cut my hair, get highlights, get a piercing, or something along those lines. So if I anticipate that and do small things like paint my nails a different color or try a new recipe I wont get as bored or stuck in a rut.
My weekly goals that I wrote on Sunday are:
Do my dishes every night before bed
Do all my reading for the week in a way that is enjoyable, so brew some tea or put on fuzzy socks or go to the library and enjoy it
Have breakfast everyday - I tend to not see breakfast as essential because I love sleep. So this week I will get up 30 minutes earlier and put some toast in my toaster and make myself a nice breakfast
Light yoga everyday this week !!! I WILL DO THIS
Manuka Honey facial twice this week (at some point, doesn't matter when I just need to do it because winter is hard on the skin)
