You’re coming off a fun-filled weekend and then BAM! After rolling out of bed on a Monday morning, you get slapped with the Monday blues.
It happens to the best of us, and it’s a mindset that’s ingrained into us very early on in life. Remember the feeling of dread each time your mom or dad woke you up for school on a Monday morning?
Well, that twelve years or so of conditioning means that the Monday blues are hard-wired into us from an early age.
Having a great week starts with a great mindset. Monday affirmations are a great way to foster the mindset necessary to crush the day and week ahead.
This article will dive into the benefits of starting your monday with positive self-talk, and also provide several monday affirmations that you can practice in order to get your week off to a good start.
Why You Should Start Your Monday With Affirmations
“It’s not about how you start, it’s how you finish.”
As someone who was an athlete in high school, I’ve heard this phrase more times than I can count.
While there’s wisdom in this quote, it’s certainly not a productive mindset to carry with you into a Monday morning. In truth, how you start each day determines how you finish it.
Can you still finish strong if you start the week on your back foot? Sure you can, but why make things harder on yourself if they don’t need to be.
Monday affirmations can provide a subtle boost of positive momentum that you can carry with you throughout the rest of your day. They’ll put your mind at ease and make it easier for you to take action on your most ambitious goals.
Now simply reciting a few positive Monday affirmations doesn’t guarantee that you’ll have a great week, or even a great Monday. However, they will tilt the odds in your favor by putting you in a better frame of mind.
When it comes to which affirmations you should recite, don’t worry about saying every single affirmation on this list. When you’re just starting out with affirmations, consistency is far more important than volume.
Here’s my advice — pick a few Monday affirmations that resonate with you and practice them at least 3-5x per day for 60 seconds at a time.
After you’ve spent a couple of weeks building this habit, you’ll find yourself naturally sprinkling in positive self-talk throughout the day.
