Why is Monday such a bad word?

I’m not sure why Monday has such a negative connotation. Well, I know why it does, but we’ve just become accustomed to seeing it as a negative. If anything goes wrong, “it’s a case of the Mondays”. If the day is long “oh well, it’s a Monday”. We use Monday as an excuse for things that don’t go our way. I’m not placing blame as I’ve done it myself! Haven’t we all?! Why not change the Monday stigma? Train our brains to view it as something more positive.

If you have a full time job with regular hours (like myself), Monday should be welcomed. You have a job that is giving you a paycheck. So many people out there are laid off or can’t find a job, and here you are walking into work on a Monday, when so many others wish they could be doing the exact same thing you are.

If you are a stay at home mom, which is a more than full time job in itself, Monday is a reason for new beginnings. If you had a tough weekend or week before, Monday is your day to restart and reclaim. Forget all those times your kids annoyed you or made a mess somewhere and be thankful that you do have kids who are able-bodied to do so.

If you are a small business owner (ie, network marketing, direct sales, personal trainer, etc), Monday is the first day to reach your goals that you have set for yourself that week. It sets the tone on how the rest of the week will be.

I challenge you to stop getting a case of the Monday’s. It’s all in your head. Make Monday feel like Friday! It’s another day you are alive!
