Do What You Love and You’ll Never Hate Mondays

Do What You Love and You’ll Never Hate Mondays

Vartika Kashyap 29/07/2019 7

Mondays can be awesome, can be magical, can make a big difference. But how many of you get that feeling in the pit of your stomach on a Sunday afternoon, commonly called the fear of Monday blues? 

Grant Spanier tweeted, If ‘Monday’ means work and you absolutely dread it, maybe you should reconsider what you’re doing. Or reconsider how you approach things you don’t want to do.

Being excited about Monday means being excited about getting a head start on everything and coming at it fresh off the weekend. But if you do not love it... 

How to Love Mondays, Again

  • Prioritize, Prioritize, Prioritize!

Let’s face it, Monday mornings can be downright daunting. You’ve got emails flowing through the inbox, you have 20 voicemails, and your co-workers waiting for your submission, sometimes you don’t even have time to grab a cup of coffee. Take a deep breath, and prioritize what has to get done. We make our list on ProofHub and work through it one thing at a time. This helps us prioritize tasks and not get up caught on Mondays.

  • Do What You Love

Yes, we’ve heard this countless times, “do what you love”. I’ve always had the pleasure of doing what I love - not many people say this. I’ve spent the last few years building the marketing team at ProofHub, coming up with inspiration for my followers, and I truly love this all - every second of it. 

Monday blues is the symptom that you do not love what you do Monday to Friday.

Are you doing what you love? Are you spending time with the people you love? If you are, then don’t let go. 

  • Monday Lunch

Make your Monday exciting by planning lunch arrangements with your friends or favorite colleagues and of course, your favorite food. Treat yourself with good food, a great way to tackle those nasty Monday blues. 

  • Take Accountability For Your Life

Do you sway in the breeze or do you hold yourself accountable for what you do? Once you adopt this mindset of being accountable, you’ll start to find more meaning to what you do and take responsibility. 

It’s Monday and it’s time to take on new projects, jump back to the weekly routine, get the coffee brewing. It’s time to kick things into high gear. Ready to get started?

What’s your Monday motivation?

    Monday is actually my favourite day, but it's true that I hate Sunday.

  • Nick TJ Cornelius

    In my humble opinion, Monday mornings are the perfect time to do things that can make the rest of the week more productive, such as cleaning out some files or, better still, clarifying your goals for the week.

  • Anthony Hazard

    Another good way to begin thinking differently about Mondays is to start doing things differently on that day.

  • Beth Owens

    Clearing your mind with mini meditations can help you to feel calmer.

  • Martin Kelly

    I harness the Friday feeling by adding a few weekend-style treats to my working week. This make my Mondays feel a little less stressful.

  • Steve Wever

    Monday marks the end of days shared with family and friends or relaxed, free hours.

  • James O'Connor

    The truth is, for most of us, Mondays are not too bad.
