Make Monday Count!

Monday, is always a day where we feel a bit – oh it’s Monday.  Granted, there are a few of us out there that love Monday’s.   However, I think there are many more, for whom Monday is rather a chore.  


In my post  Are You Present or Can TODAY Wait ?    I discussed how we need to make the most of each second, and each minute.  

Well, of course that applies to Monday.  Can you image 52 Mondays per year and how many of those Monday’s do you enjoy?  Shocking  number I am sure.   Isn’t a shame we waste a whole day, surely we need to change our relationship with Monday ?


I have struggled with Monday’s for years.  I have worked on myself to love Monday and I have had some good successes. But, Monday still somehow is not the best day and I want to change that equation for life as it is a terrible waste of a day.

My entire blog post is about thoughts and how our thoughts make us happy or sad.   Everything in our life boils down to our thoughts, our intention, or choice. 

Therefore, lets make Monday a friend and not an enemy. Let us change our relationship with Monday.     Let us make Monday count, image how many hours we lose on Monday when we struggle with the Monday blues.  

We in fact may lose several Monday’s  a year.  That is, a lot of lost time over a year, over a life time.     If we see what ever we do as an expression of our personality, then may be Monday will be a nice day each and every week of each and every year.

So, what are you going to do to make Monday count?

I am going to ensure I implement an evening routine that gets me ready to get going on a Monday.    I am going to coach myself to like Monday using gratitude and affirmation.  I am going to make Monday count by creating a few goals I must achieve every Monday.  Small baby steps to loving Monday.

What are you going to do to change your equation with Monday? Or perhaps Monday’s are you best day -perhaps you can share with us your secrets.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please like, share, comment or subscribe to my blog.

    1. Hey Xenia, That is nice way of changing the Monday feeling. I am definitely a lot better with Mondays then I ever was. I think because I had to work so hard in some job, I just didn’t have a long enough weekend. But, now I am much better.

  1. If you have trouble liking monday, don’t you think that’s a sign that you should do something different with your daily routine on monday? Like wouldn’t it be better to plan things on monday you look forward to do and would get excited about or that you love doing? Instead of doing the same routine and just telling yourself “i love mondays, I’m grateful that my worst problem is that I’m bored on mondays”? Because people don’t use affirmations on friday to make themselves feel better. You said in your comment that liking Monday is a thought thing, but our thoughts very much also stem from our daily habits.

    1. Hey Vincent, Great Comments for all the read. Habits and thoughts, thoughts and habit – definitely linked both ways. I am much better with Mondays then I have ever been. There was a time when I was full time working and I was in the door at 6am out the door at 10pm so Monday was so hard , cause I just didn’t feel I had a weekend. But, life is quite different, but the old habit of not liking Monday has almost disappeared. But, I also wrote this post because there are tone people out there for whom Monday is hard work and I appreciate what it feel like. Not liking Monday – doesnt mean someone doesn’t like their job or career – it just that they haven’t had enough time to recover. When we work for our own, each day of the week is great as you work on your timetable and deadlines are generally comfortable. The job I was in – was an international job and Friday would be hell because everyone did last minute dot com and I could easily be there until 11.30 pm working. I loved the job, but it kills you a whole week of stupid hours.

      So this post is for all that have those feelings, and every ones comments will help them find a way of getting over the err it is monday feeling.


  2. I always use Mondays to refocus on my direction for the week. Usually at work I am a bit rusty after the weekend so I find reviewing my to-do list is a good way of checking that I am on track or if there are things that I need to focus on.

    I also think it is good to start on a high with a good habit, eg having a work-out, doing a bit of writing first thing when waking up. Always sets the mood and help to contribute to making a nice positive week.
