It’s just another manic Monday. I wish it were Sunday…
It’s the beginning of the week.
Your alarm clock blares. You hit the snooze button and crawl further under your warm sheets, pretending for 10 more minutes that it’s the weekend. Maybe you’re exhausted because you partied all weekend (you’re definitely too cool for me if you fit into that category) or your kid threw up in the middle of the night and it was your turn to change the sheets and cuddle him back to sleep or you couldn’t put down that thriller you started reading and stayed up till 3am to find out whodunit (does that happen to anyone else?).
Or maybe…you start out strong. You woke up 60 minutes earlier than normal to get in a 30-minute run. You listened to Better than Before by Gretchen Rubin while doing laps around your neighborhood and you’re excited about what you have planned for the week. But once you flop down at your computer, you get sucked into emails and social media and before you know it, Monday is almost over and you didn’t write 1,000 words or take new product photos or write copy for your upcoming product launch like you had planned.
Or if you’re one of the lucky ones, you wake up on Monday ready to tackle the week, because you love your work, you’ve mastered work/life balance and you’re so motivated you always get your to-dos done plus some. (If you fall into this crazy awesome category, you can skip this post.)
For the rest of us who sometimes struggle with motivation and inspiration, I’ve started a new series of videos called Monday Motivation.
Over the past five weeks, I’ve uploaded short videos to my YouTube channel at the start of the week with the purpose of giving you a boost of energy and motivation.
If you’ve missed them, you can catch up by watching the videos below and make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel so you get notified each time a new video gets published, because I’m continuing this series until at least the end of the year.
