6 Inspirations to Look Forward To Mondays and Weekdays

If this resonates with you; then let me tell you something, " even I am not a Monday person :)....." In fact, I have never liked Mondays in my six years of career; nor I like it now-when I am a stay-at-home mother and a housewife. It feels like starting all-over-again! 

Monday may not be the favorite day of the week, for most of us; but there are too many things to love about this day: new beginning, new opportunities, starting fresh, and another brand new week to plan and achieve.

I have no special reasons to hate weekdays; but it's just that, I am quiet never ready for the weekend to end. Monday feels the end of all enjoyment! I love laid-back weekends, where I get time to do things- "not that perfect way." But weekdays calls for being more focused, more organized, meeting deadlines, facing the problems directly; and doing all these tasks without any skip button.

Doesn't matter if you had a bad Monday. You still have four more days to make things better for yourself; even before the weekend! "Be it at work, or at home; the "workweek" seems a little challenging for almost everybody." Weekdays may seem overwhelming and burdensome; but you will be surprised to know the benefits of saying goodbye to weekends; and welcoming a new "working" or official day into your life- another opportunity to face and solve new challenges, meeting your peers, colleagues and people; whom you like working with, sharing your new finding and discussing little bit about what's going on in your life, getting social with friends, finding some more time to do chores, best time to do some low budget shopping, and many more such fun things to catch up with!

These are few inspirations that you can tune your mind to follow, and you will be all set to take on the week- happily:

1. Every Monday wear something new.

Yes, save your best or most favorite outfit for the beginning of the week. Even if the day gets not-so-good; still you will feel good from the inside that; you have had received many complements, that helped you survive the day! This will also help you avoid any kind of confusions (like: what to wear today) that usually happens on Monday mornings'.



2. Create workweek challenges with friends and peers.

First, create a "challenge list" for yourself with yourself. Start with small achievable tasks.
Next, to make the day or the week more motivating, try pitching your ideas and or solutions to your friends, peers, and colleagues. This way you will have too many things to do in just five days. The same rule applies to a stay-at-home parent too! When you are able to create competition with yourself; you are less likely to feel overburdened and exhausted.

3. Save your purchase for the weekdays.

Unwrap your purchase on Monday morning or during the weekdays. If you have bought yourself some new clothes, shoes, or bags, or any kind of accessories; the best time to flaunt them; is during the weekdays. "Try dressing up and looking your best everyday."


4. Write down your "gratitude" list- the night before starting of the week.


Say, thank you God!" every day, to remind yourself that; how blessed you are, when you have a job to survive, a family to prepare food for, and a life that is safe and warm under a roof! Many don't have these basic requirements. So, even if you feel not-so-happy to wake up each morning and go to work, or get your kids ready for school, or to prepare breakfast and lunch boxes; you should, as you have been given the opportunity to create a wishful better life for yourself, and your family. So get up and get going!



5. Wear bright and bold colors.

Brighten up your dull Monday or any other day of the week (not weekend), by wearing bright colors. This will keep you in focus, and will drive attention.  You will not just feel confident, but also a lot more productive and presentable, throughout the day.

6. Try to wear one new make up each day.


Challenge your limitations; and try out new make up, or a new hairstyle each day. This way you will also have too many new things to share with everyone at work, or at a grocery shop.

  16. I use to hate Mondays, but I don't hate them anymore, I guess I just changed my opinion about them. I have to say that I really like your tips, especially the one about wearing a new outfit (or something new and different) for Monday. Trying out new make up or hairstyle is also a great way to switch up things a little and break the routine.

  26. Those are great tips! I think Monday is the underdog and needs our support. Maybe I'm saying this because I was born on a Monday.
