Monday Motivation

Welcome to another beautiful Monday morning! Maybe you’re snowed or “iced” in like me or maybe you braved the ice storm of 2018 and are headed to work. Either way we all need some motivation to not just make it through another week but to OWN this week! You can let your week own you or you can choose to own your week. There’s no in between. Owning your week means owning your time. So how in the world do you own your time? Well here’s some steps I follow to help me own my time. 

  1. Go to bed EARLY. Make it your goal to be in bed by 9:30pm. The average adult needs 7-9 hours of sleep each night. If your mind and body aren’t well rested to take on the day then there’s no hope in you being on top of your game and owning your week let alone your time. 
  2. Get up one hour earlier than normal to take some time to yourself. During the first fifteen minutes of the hour make sure you stretch and drink one whole bottle of water. (This is how you wake up your body and brain.) Use the next forty-five minutes to pray,  read the Bible and/or do your devotions. 
  3. Give yourself two fifteen minute brain breaks throughout the day. Your brain break can be taking a power nap, doing something on your phone, reading or even watching tv. Allow your mind to be refreshed throughout the day. 
  4. This is my most crucial and important step: Make a to-do list for your week. I live by my weekly to-do list. Take the time to sit down and prioritize your week in the form of a to-do list and then stick to it. I like to type up my to-do list on my laptop, since I always have it with me, and then I erase or check off the things that I accomplish. You’d be so surprised at how rewarding it feels to check off the tasks on your list. 

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” -Mark Twain 

I hope you OWN this week!

  1. I love checking things off my lists – to do, grocery, meal planning, etc.! It really does give you a sense of accomplishment. The hour earlier thing…I’m gonna have to pray over that one! 😆😆
