Monday Memo No.1 : How to make the Best of your Week

Monday’s don’t always have the best reputation! Fortunately, the Monday blues don’t necessarily have to take over your entire week.   Feeling in a funk?  Here are a few things you can do to shake it off? Not in a funk, per se? These steps could potentially make your week even better !

BEFORE WORK 

MEDITATE

Meditation is the best thing to do when you need to really tune into yourself, meditate on positive affirmations, bibe verses, thoughts of the week etc.  There are no rules to it, only you, your thoughts and deep breathing.

WRITE IT OUT

Write all of the things you wish to accomplish this week, why it means something to you and how you plan to accomplish those things listed, gracefully.

WHILE AT WORK

(SET YOUR WORK COMPUTER TO INCOGNITO MODE FIRST...AND THEN...)

SHOP

Although shopping doesn’t solve everything, it solves enough and also gives you something to look forward to at the end of the week. What do I do? Open up roughly 10 tabs of my favorite retailers, pick the best promos, and go crazy.  There is nothing like ordering a dress to arrive just in time for the weekend. Cant find a sale? This site literally cuts you a check just to shop!

AFTER WORK

PHONE A FRIEND

Don’t be that friend that calls and dumps all of your problems and worry on a person, then hangs up.  Phone a friend to go out for drinks, vent a little and then cheers to getting over it.  Work weeks can be stressful, but thats what Happy Hour and friends are for!

R U N A W A Y

Simply put,  do I like running because of the athletic gain, eh, not so much, even though the glow up is real.  I run because of the feeling thats released during and afterwards. I get in my head for a lot of things and sometimes its best for me to think about those things and just run it out.  Its totally liberating and the adrenaline rush is insane.  As dramatic as it sounds, I even play “RUNAWAY” by Kanye West.  It works.  Try is sometime. lol

CHANGE YOUR PHONE TO SILENCE & DO YOU

When it’s time for “Me Time” it is best to unplug and spend time with self, in a non depressing way. I text the ppl that I know will probably contact me during those moments with a simple “FYO, I’m unplugging in 10 min” and the ones closest understand I’m unavailable for chats, happy hours etc. and then I turn on my Spotify, mood determines channel, and I write, read or  even cuddle on the couch for a Netflix and wine session.  Whatever you need to do to decompress durning the week, do it!

It will so be worth your sanity for the remainder of the week.  

 


If you have any more ways to make the Best of your Week, I’d love to hear it!

    I love this. Not only did you provide ways to distress while at work during the work week, but also, ways to help sooth the spirit after (EUSTRESS- the good stress) work which truly can be a test.
    Keep going Aarin💜🧡💚💙
