MONDAY MORNING RITUALS
Mornings are sacred for me. It’s the time of the day where I feel most at peace, most inspired, ready to take on anything that comes my way. If I don’t spend my morning properly it could potentially throw off my entire day. Monday mornings are especially important. Not only is it the beginning of a new day but it’s the start of a new week. I love the possibility of Mondays--It’s a fresh start and I always make sure to start them off right.
I crawl out of bed just before the sun starts to peek through the curtains. First thing I do is go over the weekly agenda in my planner to clear my mind of all the stress that inevitably comes with Monday Mornings. I start brewing the perfect cup of coffee, and let the sound of good music fill the room and energize my soul. And yes, I’m one of those people that dances around in her underwear singing to her dog every morning. I know Mondays are a drag for most people -- "Cheers to the freakin' weekend, back to school, back on the grind, etc.” I get that. But I promise you if you take a little extra time for yourself..wake up an hour earlier every Monday morning and develop YOUR ritual, you’re guaranteed to turn your Monday blues around and be unstoppable for the week. Feed your soul, read a book, write down some thoughts, spend some extra time on your makeup, do some yoga. Whatever makes you feel like how dancing around in my underwear makes me feel. Here’s to Mondays, here’s to you, here’s to 7 Days of new possibilities. xoxo
