Monday Is The Best Day Of The Week

Monday Is The Best Day Of The Week

Reasons Mondays can shift to be the best day of the week.

Mondays get a bad wrap... it is the day after the weekend.

You are tired and you probably did not sleep well. Maybe you slept in too much on Sunday. You went out Sunday for funday. There are plenty of reasons that Monday is the hang over day of the weekend. However, with that, Mondays can be the most successful and the most looked forward to, if you let yourself. All you have to do is change your perception. No one wants or chooses to not be happy about a day... it just happens.

I love Mondays and here's why... it is my favorite day of the week! Why not make the best of it? Here is my inspiration or hope to get me through!

Instead of dreading Monday, I am excited about it.

Make it's your favorite day because it is the day you are back to work (if that applies). Monday is the day I personally love work! This is because I am a scheduler, and for the organized person, Monday can be wonderful. Particularly, because it is the day you break down your work week. In fact, you may break down your social calendar, too. Which is great. You need something to look forward to. It is the planning day. If you love planning, this should be your thing. Plan out the work hours, the galas, the happy hours, the dinner, whatever... just plan! It may help.

Monday is the day it is acceptable to drink way too much coffee, and I love that. Make today focused.

Monday is the day you are tired but it feels so good getting off work and sitting on the couch when you get home. That euphoric feeling is almost worth it.

It is a new week, a new day and you're alive — try to wake up smiling.

Mondays often are the days of a holiday! Therefore, Monday is awesome for even the Monday haters! Three day weekend, anyone?

Mondays can be driven to be the most motivating by being successful. It is the day a lot of success comes at work, you are busy, people get a lot of work done. A lot of people require a good amount of work from you. In return, you count on them to get work done, too.

On Monday, it helps to wake up and exercise and actually eat breakfast. Be early, stay late.

Visualize and challenge yourself. Keep your Monday so busy. By starting off your week like this, you do not have time to dwell. So, remember...

Why I Stopped Reading The News

Cutting the news out of your life will most likely help you.

The news is depressing. Politics is a joke and nothing good is happening across the globe, or at least nothing good is showing up in the news. As a student, life consists of studying and late nights. Before, I would make time (usually when I wanted to procrastinate) to check the news and keep myself updated on the news. Now, I will occasionally read the news, but social media usually keeps me updated on the big events. Yes, it's good to keep yourself updated on current events, but when the news is actually effecting your mental state, you should take a break and focus on yourself.

I stopped reading the news because it made me sadder to know that so many innocent people were hurt across the world and sixteen year old me couldn't really do much to help them. I was already so stressed from school and the news would add to that stress, that I decided to cut it out of my life. The world sucks and it's even suckier that you can't do a thing to help people across the world. My mom tells me that it's normal to feel sad about current events because it shows that you still have that humanity in you. But she also says to balance how much you look at the news to stay mentally healthy, and for me, that balance was to stop looking at the news. On top of that, you can't completely trust any news source completely because sometimes, you never know the true story.

You might say that it's "selfish" that I care about my mental health and that I "don't care about humanity" because I don't look at the news. Or maybe that I am "ignorant" and I'm just making excuses because some news sources are completely true. But I won't care because I am taking care of my mental health, and in order for me to make an impact on the world and help others, I need to make myself stronger first.

Instead of reading the news and wallowing in my self-pity about how I couldn't help anyone, I took that time to improve my own lifestyle. I started focusing on what I could do to help myself be a better a person, then on what I could do to help others. I started helping out with service projects and started my orientation for volunteering at the local hospital. I am slowly making changes to my life to make myself better so I can help others. If I was still checking the news daily like I used to, I wouldn't have gotten the motivation to make these changes or try to be a better person.
