Are you ready to take your Mondays back?
I used to dread Mondays. Like I literally would get all down and out on Sunday night waiting for Monday to roll around. Then I decided to take my Mondays back. Read to the bottom for some recipes that have helped me with Monday motivation and to get good sleep on Sunday night. Here's what I started doing...
Start by Resting on Sundays for Mondays to be Great Again.
I'm serious! This may sound counterproductive but I found that when our family started resting, playing and taking Sundays as a true Sabbath, Mondays didn't seem so bad anymore. We read, play games, take walks to a local coffee shop, hang outside, spend time with the Lord and just do what we love to do. I often do yoga or bake in the morning. Every Sunday looks different except for our time with the Lord. That stays consistent and a top priority.
Set Yourself up Sunday night for Monday Morning Success.
I fill up all the diffusers with motivational blends to turn right on in the morning.
I make the coffee and set it up to start automatically.
I look through my planner for the week ahead.
Put my oils on to get the best sleep possible.
I try to read something at bedtime that inspires me for the week ahead. It's usually about faith, being a leader or home schooling.
Wake up to Motivational Mindfulness.
When I wake up I go straight to my devotions. Right now I'm using the YouVersion Bible app.
I say a prayer to start the day and rejoice with the Lord in the day He has made.
Make Mondays Great Again by Taking it Slow.
I know, sounds totally undo-able and it might be for you right now. I'm not sure what season you are in. When I started staying home with my kids and began to see the idea of time freedom from working from home, I decided to take Mondays slow. This means we do not have a lot on the schedule. I do not run errands. I don't try to do all the things in one day. I look at the week ahead and make sure I have a good handle on what's going down.
You might say I changed a Sunday well spent brings a weeks content to a Monday well spent!
Oh and by the way here are some of my favorite morning blends to put in the diffuser to get going:
4 drops Motivation
2 drops Peppermint
Rise and Shine
3 drops Lemon
3 drops Valor
2 drops Lime
Here are my favorite sleepy oils:
Rutavala Roll On
Ready to start using oils, grab them here. It matters what you use. The quality will make a difference on how it works.
We only get one chance to live in peace and joy. I wasted many years not doing that. So I'm here for it now. I will do what it takes to manifest that and give that to my children.
