How to Have a Good Monday

I got through Monday! AND it was a good Monday! Am I finally figuring out how to start off my week on an awesome note?

Maybe I’m on to something here…so let me share.

Give Yourself Time – Don’t Rush

I woke up before 6AM to drive from Andy’s to my apartment. There is always traffic, so I make sure to give myself some extra time. When I got home I had time to shower, get ready, and get my lunch together… and had plenty of time to do it! Not having to rush can alleviate so much stress. I got into work a half hour early, ready to take on the day.

Eat Well – Prep Your Meals

For lunch I came back home (I’m lucky enough to live close), made myself lunch, and meal prepped for the rest of the week. I made Simple Chorizo and Butternut Squash Hash from Juli at PaleOMG. It was nice to try something new and it was delicious!

Focus on One Thing at a Time

During the second half of my day at work I tried to stay focused and didn’t let the infinite amounts of information on the Internet/Social media distract me.

End Your Day with Yoga

After work I went to a brand new yoga studio that I’m scoping out.  It’s definitely different from any “city” studio that I’ve been to but I loved it.  It’s in a beautiful space and it was really nice to end my day with some backbending and savasana.  (The picture was from Sunday night when I was practicing my hand stands.)

Make Small Changes to Your Routine – Keep Things Fresh

I think the key to my great Monday today was having enough time and keeping things new, fresh, and exciting.  Changing your routine, eating a different go-to snack, drinking your coffee black, or going on a different running route are just a few examples of ways to switch it up.  Sometimes the smallest changes can be really refreshing.

How do you get through your Monday?
