Everyday Inspirations


~ how to ~


There's rarely a Sunday in my life that goes by where a friend doesn't mention how much he or she is dreading Monday.

Poor Monday. We live in a world where we're taught to hate it. It signifies the end of two days of freedom and the beginning of a week filled with seemingly never-ending tasks we don't want to face. I have a sneaking suspicion, however, that many people would feel differently if they prepared for Monday.

This week, don't jump into Monday without some simple, mind-saving prep:
  • Make a list of to-dos. Avoid walking into your office and allowing yourself to become overwhelmed. Instead, spend 10 minutes on Sunday writing a list of things you have to accomplish this week. Get tasks off your mind and onto paper. Prioritize them. Come up with a game plan. Then put the list away and enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
  • Clean up. I'm not talking deep-cleaning; just take care of clutter. You'll feel a lot better waking up tomorrow morning if you don't have to face a pile of clean laundry that's still sitting on the floor. 
  • Take time for you. Even if you can only spare five minutes, focus on your needs and spoil yourself. It's easier to work on other tasks when you know you've made time for a personal reward.
