If you really want to enjoy success in all facets of life, find a great deal of enthusiasm in everything you like doing. Your passion can give you almost everything you need. Finding your Monday happiness begins with you before you touch the world.
I know there are too many Monday haters out there. That is the first day of the working days so a lot of things happen. Monday’s do occur 52 times in a year. It often happens to be the busiest day of the whole working day. Do we really find happiness meeting a fresh week? Oh uh, I doubt that. Monday happiness isn’t really a ‘happy moment’ but since happiness is a state of mind; you can choose it and overcome any stress that will crop up.
In this post, I would like to share something powerful with you. Monday’s, in general, aren’t happy days. It sucks waking up from bed to meet Monday because the previous days were holidays and that is where you actually had the greatest enjoyment. Yeah, I’m talking about all the fun people have on weekends.
Since Mondays are often stressful, I would like you to turn it into an element of positive feeling that will move throughout your day. I want to share some motivation with you. And hopefully, it will help you to face whatever work/task you have to do with a renewed energy and passion.
Recap From The Weekend
The Actual fun does happen on weekends, not on Mondays. So you have to learn how to move into a new week with positive energy. So that you could be happy and productive in whatever work you do.
You are free to oversleep on weekends without looking at the clock early in the morning. Why? Because workers often don’t work on Saturdays and Sundays. It’s a few who do work. Just like how students often stay at home or in their hostels during weekends.
This is the golden moment for extra activities that truly bring happiness. You may be curious enough to find out what other people are doing to enjoy life out there. You may not be an exception.
It’s unfortunate, because of the Pandemic, our normal activities have been forcefully stolen from us. And it seems these globalists are trying to reset the world; no more fun on weekends. And it sounds crazy!.
Friends who like clubbing, beaching and other outdoor games can’t have their normal enjoyment. And if that is the case, let’s try to make Mondays’ the most thrilling day.
We could barely have any fun on weekends. Our friends and loved ones have been in lockdown in their various houses. And since this so-called lockdown has exempted us from having all the fun at the workplace/homes/outside; then everything has to be done indoors.
And it begins by putting yourself in a happy mood. Monday happiness wouldn’t be so different from the rest of the days unless this deadly coronavirus(COVID-19) has been eradicated. Lockdown is creating more stress for millions of people.
On normal grounds, we meet the first working day with a lot of pressure and stress. And we should find one or two habits that can help us break down the stress.
Your Monday Happiness Begins With You
Just like we all know that happiness is a state of mind; So succeeding in clearing out any obnoxious feelings creates space for your happy hormones to fill you with positive feelings.
Let me remind you that happiness is a choice, so irrespective of the level of your painful situation; you can still choose to be happy.
Those who learn to remain happy and positive enjoy a longer life. I bet you; stress and depression kill people so easily. So whether you have to work from home or at the workplace, you have to be positive.
“The road to happiness starts with a deep breath and an awareness of the many blessings tied to that single breath”
-Richelle E. Goodrich
Yes, before you feel happy at the workplace, home, etc, on Monday’s you must develop that self-awareness about your zealous intention of ending the day with good and positive thoughts; just like how you began it.
Mental Health Over Stressful Days
Placing your mental health on top of your priorities would help you a lot to stay positive 24/7. By maintaining a positive mindset toward work, your goals and any task you have to handle brings a lot of happiness to you.
Preparing for a new week needs to be seasoned with great enthusiasm. Forget about whatever happened on the weekend and approach Monday with fresh and positive thoughts. This is a real secret that can make you happy.
So whether you will have a great day at work or wherever you are supposed to be at the beginning of the day depends on your mindset. Your thoughts for meeting a fresh week must be positive. Each day must be approached with a positive mindset.
You don’t need anyone to make you happy. There is a saying that goes like: “happy yourself.” And it is something pretty simple because you only have to work on your thoughts. It begins with you before anyone else.
What To Do To Motivate You Enjoy Monday’s
Before you see the bright morning sun, you already know what you would be facing. It’s not such a welcoming moment when you get to know that Monday is approaching.
“Your Monday morning thoughts set the tone for your whole week. See yourself getting stronger, and living a fulfilling, happier & healthier life.”
– Germany Kent
So you would need some motivation or something to psych you up. Monday is rush hour.
You will likely go through some stressful moments and the slightest bit of laziness, that would come your way may cause great harm. So learn to inculcate the following into your life so that you fully enjoy all the happiness hidden from you. Your Monday happiness should come from a good mood.
1. Don’t think about the negative things
Anything that gives you bad memories must be avoided. Anything or anyone that makes you feel awful, useless, weak, a failure must be far from your reach and your thoughts.
2. Change what is pulling you down
If you have to change your timetable, job, a particular behavior, friends, residence, relationship, etc, do it. That is if you believe they are stealing away your happiness. It is a good thing to be dynamic in a way that meets your goals in life
3. Keep The Day Under Control
If you do not control the day, the day will control you. Be ready to accomplish all your goals during the day. Avoid any form of laziness or frivolous excuses.
“Either you run the day or the day runs you.”
– Jim Rohn
4. Work hard
Make sure you focus on giving out the best in you. Because you get some benefits for executing your assigned tasks at the workplace. A student also learns something new to beef up his knowledge. And all these must be approached with great enthusiasm. Working hard alone brings a lot of happiness into your life while you enjoy other benefits like good health and long life.
5. Be motivated by the prize
Yes! If you really want to get rid of boring Mondays, you must approach it with the pay off of your hard work in mind. It’s just a single day out of the other working days. So you have to get down with 4 different Mondays before you receive your wages.
There is something big at the end of the month. Yes surely, you would receive your salary at the end of the month. If you are self-employed too, your input will yield to you exactly what you deserve.
A student too will benefit by studying hard or being productive during studies hours. The brain never gets full of knowledge so prepare it for more during the beginning of the week.
These are some of the best ways to turn stressful Mondays into something beautiful. Monday happiness can reflect through the week. Always, be prepared to do your best. Maintaining a positive mindset would trigger your happy hormones throughout the day.
Because of this, you end up being productive, happy and relieved from anything that steals your happiness or gives you stress. Let Monday be a source of your motivation for the week. Stay strong and motivated.
Some Quotes About Happiness
Here are some interesting quotes to help you spice up your Monday’s so that you never feel bored even if you have a chunk of tasks to complete at the workplace. Remember that you can’t buy happiness.
It is too expensive so hold it in high esteem and enjoy every bit of it.
1. “Happiness has nothing to do with your life’s circumstances, its based on your ability to accept the things you are experiencing”
2. “Happiness is never found in materialistic things; it exists in things that cannot be physically possessed. Therefore, happiness is priceless. It can never be purchased. Love is happiness”
-Ellen J. Barrier.
3. “Better to be happy with the codfish in your plate now, than to linger for the taste of a tuna that is still swimming in the sea”
-Dennis E. Adonis
4. “Life is filled with challenges! don’t let happiness be one of them”
5. “While many of us admire nice things, materialism and suffering may share a connection. When we place a great deal of our happiness in material things, we run the great risk of losing our happiness when our material things become lost, old, or damaged. Toys break. Cars get dents. Clothes get ripped. Jewels get lost or stolen. Riches come and go. If we collect moments rather than things, these are ours to keep. If we redefine wealth by the amount of love and kindness we afford ourselves to give to others, we can transform our lives”
6. “Research has shown that the best way to be happy is to make each day happy”

Starts each fresh working day with a positive mindset. Putting yourself in a good mood and maintaining it would make you the happiest person ever.
