It’s Monday.  Many people start off the week with a feeling of dread.  But it doesn’t have to be that way!  How can you get your Monday (and ultimately your week) off on the right foot?  Here are a few simple tips that will help you start to love Monday!

Own the First 60 Seconds:  The fact is, most of us start our day living in the past.  We wake up and are immediately worried about the actions of yesterday or the problems coming up.  That’s no formula for happiness or success.  Take a deep breath and bring yourself into the now.   Read more about this here.

Have a Good Routine:  We all have routines that govern our life.  Studies will tell you that between 60% and 70% of the decisions you make each day are on auto-pilot.  So spend some time to create routines that serve you.  Drink water.  Exercise.  Read.  Whatever feeds your brain and your soul.  Make that a part of your every day. Put IN Some Good:  Which leads you to get some sources of inspiration that help to feed that brain first thing in the morning.  My sources include Gary Vaynerchuck, Seth Godin, Ed Mylett and more.  But if you need another, check out my Youtube Channel and subscribe.  Our goal is to provide some education and inspiration as well!

Push Out Some Good:  Another great way to get your mindset kicked off in the right direction is to simply do some good first thing.  For me, it might be writing a blog post.  My creative juices get flowing and I hope to affect some positive change.  It might be sending a thank you card or email or text.  Push out some good…it will make you feel great!

Chart a Course For Action:  Now it’s time to be intentional.  Don’t just let the day happen to you.  Spend some time and chart a few things you want to get done today.  Creating a short list of “must do’s” can help keep you on track when the whirlwind of the day hits!   It’s time to take Monday back!  Try a few of these simple steps to get you off on the right foot to attack your week!  Now…let’s go do this!
