Why I Love Mondays (And You Should Too!)

Did you ever notice that the people who have grand plans for reform on New Years Eve every year are the same people who also take to your timeline every Monday morning to whine and complain about what a dreadful day it is? Curiouser and curiouser! No?

Why I Love Mondays

Other than being perfectly drained by the hatred of Mondays I got to thinking about why people hold one day in every 365 in such high esteem but can’t seem to recognize the first day of a new week as a similar new leaf/fresh start and all those other cliches in which we start anew.

I must admit. I harbor a terrible secret…

I LOVE MONDAYS!

Mondays

I don’t have time to dwell on how miserable Mondays are instead, I’m wishing they had more than 24 hours. I get up at the crack of dawn and I struggle to get everything done by midnight! It’s the day I brainstorm for the blog, write a few posts, create my images and think about what I can do at the weekend.

I’m not sure anymore if a large portion of the public just really dislikes Monday or if yet again social media has created a nice little bandwagon to jump aboard! I’m going to go with the bandwagon on this one as thinking about such a high level of negativity from countless people, week after week is frighteningly overwhelming! Just HOW is it that bad?

Monday is a blanket of fresh snow, a mirror still lake, a brand new journal all yours to disturb. Why not make the disturbance worthwhile?

How To Get Through Monday

  • Remember that every week, it’s someone’s last Monday.
  • Put your positive pants on and set the tone for a brand new week.
  • In the space where you usually voice your dismay, write down a goal for the day or the week.
  • Hustle to make it happen.
  • Instead of the usual coffee you need to survive, try a cup of positivity. If that doesn’t work then I know another cup you might enjoy.
  • Handle it. You’re a grown a** adult.
  • And if you can’t do any of that then close your mouth and make Tuesday a better day!

VICTIM OF MONDAY

Food for thought:

What happens when New Years Eve falls on a Monday?!

What a scary thought!

  4. I cannot love this post enough! I love Mondays too and have wondered how the entire populations has grown to loathe them! Wonderful piece! <3

  7. Ever since I started working for myself I have loved my Monday’s as well! It doesn’t matter how bad the week before was, because Monday is a fresh start. =D Thanks for sharing!

  8. You are amongst the very few i have ever known who are so excited about Monday, else i have seen people cribbing and writing stories on Monday blues. A real delight was reading your post

  9. Since I write a motivational post to get people going every Monday, it is a day I look forward to with excitement and gratitude. Every day brings its share of blessings and challenges and, as far as I’m concerned, every day is a monday or …. fill in the blank = a great day to be alive!

  10. I won’t lie….I hate mondays, but have really been trying to look at them differently lately. I share a “monday motivation” quote with my IG followers that’s probably more for me than it is them. I also try to think of Monday as the start of a new week to make up for anything that didn’t happen (but should have) the week before.

  11. I loved these thoughts Amy! It’s so true, every Monday is like a fresh start, I don’t really mind them either. 🙂 I dislike Wed/Thurs more… so close to the weekend it’s like it’s taunting me. 😉
    Really like your first bullet point on how to get through Mondays too, it’s all about perspective.

  12. This is such a good point! I used to hate Mondays because I would always get headaches, but now I’ve been more positive and have been going to yoga that day and they have almost disappeared! I’m working towards loving Mondays once I can quit my awful job 🙂

  13. Mondays always seem to come sooner and sooner! Sometimes I love them and sometimes I hate them! I’m working on loving them all the time though! Maybe one day!

  14. For me Monday s just as any other day, in fact I don’t see it as Monday. I guess people hate them because after having a grfeat wekend they feel they have to return to “normal” activities and tht’s what makes Mondays boring. Great tips.

  15. Monday is my FAVORITE day of the week too! I get a lot done. Hubs is back to work and my oldest goes to summer school. It’s like a new leaf of freshness. I love Mondays.
