Back when I had a full-time big girl corporate job, Monday was when got back to it and came up with new inspiration for HonestRox. I did my best hustle work while at work. Honestly, this site wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for the real-world experiences I got at my 9-5 corporate job.
It was definitely my playground. I got to act differently according to each situation I found myself in and test out different strategies on how to make the most impact, which I now get to share with you!
And although my life has made a 180-degree turn lately, where I don’t have to clock in anywhere, I still look forward to Monday because I get to be myself again. I get to dig deep into research articles, listen to books, and get my creativity going, without any other interruptions!
So since you joined this awesome newsletter, let’s start with this food for thought.
If you think I’m crazy to love Monday, I dare you to try it.
Don’t buy into the cultural cliches and memes such as this one floating around.
Remember, you are what you eat. You are what you think. You are what you do. This is the SAME thing. Try having an opposite attitude to your normal reaction.
Tell yourself “hot damn it’s Monday, woohoo!”
It seems silly, but it works. The more you do it, the more you can build upon that attitude in other areas of your life.
But you know what works even more? Having something to look forward to. I try to look forward to something every single day. Whether that’s listening to a book on the way to work because I didn’t have a chance to at the weekend, or eating a piece of chocolate mid-morning, or writing out a blog post mid-day, I always try to plan something I enjoy doing.
So with that in mind, if Monday is not your favorite day, how can you make it be? And if it is, then keep spreading the message!
Let’s get this Monday started baby!
