For whatever reason, most of us start the week on Monday. Even though the weeks run through Sunday-Saturday on our calendars, Monday seems to be the day to always start anew. I always see the saying “Never miss a Monday”, and 99% of the time it is related to working out. Even I have used that statement associated with working out and found that if I missed a Monday workout, it got into my head and made me feel poorly about how I was starting my week. Don’t get me wrong, I love working out, but don’t need to feel bad if I don’t do it one day. If that becomes the norm and I am no longer doing it, then I know I need to re-evaluate my priorities. BUT that is for me, not for you, and really that goes for anything I want to focus on and is important to me.
“Never miss a Monday” is a saying I do agree with, but have decided to switch up my mindset and it has made all the difference. So, when Monday rolls around I evaluate what my focus is for the week. Is it to rest and regain balance? Is it to be on top of my workouts? Is it to be more mindful? Is it to be more kind to others? Is it to watch my eating? (and on and on). That is now my mindset for “Never miss a Monday.” What is my focus for the week? I can tell you it absolutely helps and it doesn’t have to be just for working out. I came to realize that by doing whatever my desired focus is on Monday and not letting that day pass me by, I am able to maintain my motivation throughout the week.
So tomorrow I will practice “Never miss a Monday.” I am not sure what my focus for this coming week will be (it usually comes to me around bedtime on Sunday).
What is your focus and priority for the week? Do it tomorrow and see if it impacts your week, how you approach it, and whether or not you achieve the success you were hoping for.
