Ahhh, the Monday after a long holiday weekend, the first one of the holiday season, AND the last one in November? I know, you probably wanna do nothing more than binge Netflix and relax (just me!?)
This is a great day to be productive, to set the tone for how you want your holiday season to go, to maybe check 1 or 2 boxes off your to-do list, and also set the tone for the week!
Monday is waiting for you. Go!
Every day, I SHOW UP.
Some days I am ALL FIRED UP, and I kick ass, and it goes down in the history of productive days.
Other days, I take maybe ONE step closer to a better me, a better life. But I still take a step, and that step matters.
You are WORTH showing up every day, and every.single.step.matters, no matter how small. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
It is when you BELIEVE, and when you string together these moments, paired with those days that you are just uneffin’stoppable, that you are gonna SOAR.
So WILL you soar? Or are you content to just get by?
From the book I am currently reading/hosting a book club group for, is this awesome rudder quote!
I find it to be 100% true and accurate. When I actually got over my “I’m sleepy” state of mind, and SAW how starting the day off with the right tone actually changed the whole mood for the day, I was hooked. That’s a really powerful, empowering feeling, and I find it motivating every day to chase that, mornings when it just sometimes doesn’t come together, it is a HUGE shift in energy.
I let that fuel me – nothing like heading into your office, getting there at 0730, and already having had done your grueling workout, showered and gotten dressed, drank your superfoods, done your affirmations, driven into work (26.2 mile drive) while pep talking yourself (cannot listen to audio PD so I do my own!), AND done some personal development.
So basically, no matter what happens, some of the crucial components? ALREADY DONE!
Do you agree with this perspective?
By going to bed 10 minutes earlier each night, you’d log an additional 70 minutes of sleep in a week. Cool, but in a YEAR that means you will have logged an additional 60 HOURS of sleep!
I’m getting the warm fuzzies just thinking about it… I LOVE my sleep!
But honestly, do you think you could benefit from an extra hour plus of shuteye a week?
