What is it with Mondays and their constant attempt to put a frown on my face.. the day has yet to come where I say “Yes, I am so happy it is a Monday” but you never know, keep reading and you might find out how 😉
So yeah, I’m not gonna lie I did wake up this morning with the typical Monday blues. I had such a lovely weekend with a cute visit from the grandparents which always gives us a bit of entertainment ((for all types of reasons..who can make the most inapropriate joke, safe to say that my brother usually wins that one. The little emperor that he is also gets away with it and is often referred to as “sweet”)). Aside from the sibling rivalries, the weekend was beaut filled with lots of sunshine and smiles.
So yeah, Mondays are a tough one for me, not because it is another relentless week at a job I don’t like or long week of exams ((Well done to those who have finally finished, woo!!!)). Rather, Mondays are a reminder that I am not able to do that kind of stuff and it can be hard being reminded that yeah, I still am struggling and I am unwell. ..who would have thought I would be jealous of people at school!
To overcome my lack of motivation and aimlessness I made my own routine.
So, after my well appreciated cup of tea ((big shoutout to my dad, who knows how to make a wicked cuppa in the morning #Iamaprincess)) I pray it’s not too cold, the sun is out and it’s not chucking it down with rain ((although I am impartial to a good rainstorm)) and take my pooch for a walk. That half an hour stroll, power walk, mooch or whatever tends to do the trick.. but not always. This morning, super tired from watching too much love island, I went from a 5/10 and came back a 6/10. I know it is not a massive change but it was something and that in itself makes me happy and gave me a fresh perspective.
Obviously that walk is soon followed by a cup of coffee, so if my walk didn’t sort me out that hopefully would. Basically, if you are feeling a little bit grotty or not feeling up to the day ahead go for a lil walk, put the best Spotify playlist on ((massive fan of ‘reach for the stars’ when I need a mood booster)) and get some fresh air – it can make a world of difference, or it won’t but can’t hurt to try #postivementalattitude.
….Or just roll over and watch another episode on Netflix but you can always do that later!
Please share your #mondaymotivation,
((I am slowly running out of routes to walk my dog, so they are also welcome!!!))
