Christmas is not a season, but a lifestyle.....
Monday’s after a long holiday weekend can be difficult. What is your strategy to be energized and driven today, finish the month strong and be prepared for a fresh and final month later this week?! Three good options in my book include:
Show no mercy, just get up and get to it. If you do not start strong on Monday, the rest of my week is not going to measure up. It is non-negotiable to go anything less than 110% on Monday.
Give yourself some flexibility. Perhaps a slower and later start is a better option. Plan accordingly if so, so you have that time to pace yourself up, out, or in to your day.
Perhaps you just skip Monday altogether and keep that weekend going up to Tuesday. Do you prefer a long weekend taking Friday off or Monday off?
What is your ideal rest day? Are you a turn it off for 10 seconds and turn it back on or are you a shut it down, every device, multiple days, type of person? Since the last time I considered this, I am now option B! I have gotten very good at slowing down, dialing back and finding solitude even in active moments.
There is no right or wrong way to Monday and Rest. Find what works, don’t let anyone else guilt you into any other method, do guilt yourself into doing more than your body feels necessary especially on those rest days!
Happy Monday & Happy Holiday Lifestyle for the next 6 weeks!!!!
