10 Habits for a Happier, Healthier Monday
Do you dread Mondays? No need to, it’s a day like all the others. But here are my top 10 tips to get your week started positive, healthy and full of energy.
1. Push yourself into an early morning WORKOUT.
Better yet do it outdoor. The fresh, crisp air will wake you up, boost your immune system and get the engine going for the rest of the week.
2. Start with a healthy, colorful BREAKFAST.
And looking forward to it the evening before.
3. Start your week with a morning MEDITATION.
It can be any type of meditation, you can do Tai Chi, walking meditation, yoga, visualization or meditate like a monk. Whatever works for you.
4. Watch and listen to INSPIRATIONAL, POSITIVE speeches and videos.
Nothing better to get your brain into thinking positive from the beginning of the week and get motivated.

5. Start with a SMILE.
Whoever passes your way smile, it will make you feel better and it will brighten up their day as well.
6. Morning STRETCH.
This always wakes me up and relaxes tight muscles from the night before. Don’t be too harsh on yourself, just light stretching. If you have injuries or pains leave the stretches for a bit later after your body moves a little.
7. SILENT your phone at night and don’t use it for 1 hour after you wake up.
According to some studies people who don’t check their social media or use mobile devices are more productive during the day. I would add more clear minded and have more energy. Tried and tested many years ago before reading any statistics. Try it.
8. Make someone a COMPLIMENT
Throughout the day make at least one person a compliment, it can be anyone and about anything. Like the smile this will make their day and you will feel better as well. Win-Win.
9. Start with a list of five things you are GRATEFUL for.
Appreciate the little things as much as the big, important events in your life. They are all part of you and complete your life, and the more you acknowledge them the more often they will happen to you.
10. Each time you meet someone, silently wish them HAPPINESS, JOY and LAUGHTER.
I think this is my favourite. I do all of the above throughout the week and like all of them but this is so powerful that it has to be at the top of my list.
