5 reasons why I love Monday & why you should too.

5-reasons-why-i-love-monday TGIM friends, I hope you had a fantastic weekend and a great start to the week. I’ve heard countless times how “Mondays” suck; I actually love Monday. I don’t personally think it’s that bad, however I do see why most people don’t care for it and I’m sharing with you today my two cents on the matter.

monday-motivation-why-you-is-monday-prodcutive 1 – It’s just another day of the week.  See, this may sound cliché, but the truth is society makes a huge deal out of Monday being the day everybody dreads to see. I see how it can be daunting to see the day that precedes the fun and activity-filled days (weekend) as the “party pooper” if I can put it this way, because it’s a start of a work week; but for me, that’s just life and there’s always going to be a party pooper, and there’s always going to be a Monday. Lol. In fact I think of Monday as starting anew.

2- It’s a fresh new start. I love the chance of a new start. It gives me hope and strength to keep going and get things done or to get things right. Do you recall that feeling when it’s your birthday, when it’s the beginning of a new year, when the month is ending and we’re about to see another one? That feeling of a new start, new opportunities, new and more blessings…? That’s exactly how you should also feel when you think of Monday.

The excitement to put another ounce of work toward your goals, the purpose-driven attitude and eagerness to make things happen, the hope to get it right this time. These should be good enough reasons why you should love Mondays.

3- It’s another day to be grateful for. – Think of it this way: You are well and alive and some people are battling or fighting for their life at this very moment. Some, on the other hand, didn’t make it through Sunday to see this day. There’s a lot going in the world that we can’t even wrap our head around. Be grateful and thank the higher power, or the universe for the simple fact that you’re seeing another beautiful day. You know what, life is even more fun and rewarding when we count our blessings!

4- It’s the most productive day of the week. According to a study conducted by the staffing firm Accountemps, while some people will argue that Tuesday is the most productive day of the week, Monday would be considered the most productive day by a great percentage of human resources managers. Whether you’re working for yourself or for someone else, a productive day equal greater results and great feeling of accomplishment. Monday can be productive because most people tackle it with “The weekend is over, now back-to work” attitude! Many workers would spend their day trying to catch up on the previous week and plan the week ahead. I believe that when you hit your week with a great start, and plan out your week ahead, you will most likely not only have a productive day, but also a productive week.

5- “Do what you love to do and you will never work another day in your life”

Yes, this sentiment is an all-time constant. We’ve heard or read it somewhere; we even repeated it to our younger folks or adults peers in times of motivation or encouragement.  “Do what you love and you will never work another day in your life”.  If you love what you do and are passionate about it, it becomes your way of life, and you find a purpose in doing it.

Do you have a love or hate story with Mondays? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this!  Thanks for reading and have a wonderful start to the new week 🙂
