Most people I know scoff at the idea of having to Monday! A friend often calls Monday her “Bonus Sunday,” and never works on Monday. I used to feel the same way. In fact, I was the epitome of the Monday Blues. But now, as I push closer to forty, I am learning to embrace this dreaded day.
My husband doesn’t work on Mondays, and because I work from home, I have the opportunity to relax as well. We often use Monday for a variety of family-centered activities: working on our budget, grocery shop, playing board games with our daughter, etc.. I also take the time to set up my planner for the week, figure out our homeschooling goals, and focus on having a productive week. Usually, we do all of this while listening to music.
So, every Monday, I will be sharing five songs with you that will hopefully inspire your creativity and help to focus you on your path to consistency and completion.
Some questions to ponder as you listen:
- On what will you focus this week?
- What energy are you bringing into the new week?
- How can you maximize your productivity this week?
- What will you do to take care of you this week?
