What if I told you that you can make Mondays feel easy & fun? Would that trigger the sh*t out of you?
I know it would've made me wonder how the eff it was possible when I was chained to my desk more than 2 years ago at my corporate job.
Since then I have been experimenting like crazy trying to figure out how to create a life & biz of ease, flow, freedom and fun and while having a baby and moving cross-country twice put a kink in my plans these things most definitely didn't stop me from pursuing my ideal lifestyle.
Truth is I have always desired Mondays to feel luxurious and easy, while still feeling productive. I never wanted to jump start my week feeling like I had to get so much stuff done because I felt that was the equivalent of sprinting into the week and life is a marathon not a sprint, am I right?
See, time is what you make of it and with just the right amount of structure you can create the illusion of having more than enough time & space to do what it is that you need AND want to do, while fostering feelings of ease, flow, freedom and fun. I only know this because like I said I have been a master experimenter for the last 2 1/2 years!
So, how did I create such high vibe Mondays as a work at home mom?
1) I decided how I wanted to feel. Have you ever heard of The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte? If not, add it to your Amazon shopping cart like meow! (Here's a direct link so you don't forget: http://amzn.to/2fe6Ljp)
I was introduced to this book 4 years ago and OMG it was a godsend. Danielle is a life-changing thought leader who discusses the idea of basing your entire life around how you truly desire to feel. And, ever since reading that book I have been on a mission to encourage myself to do just that. I can't say it's always the easiest thing to do, but when you decide and you become intentional with only putting out action in accordance with how you desire to feel then life changes drastically for the better. Trust me!
2) I created routines based on how I wanted to feel. So as I mentioned before some things I strive to feel are ease, flow, freedom and fun in my daily life and I am on a mission to support you in fostering those feelings for yourself as well. One of the ways I have been able to begin cultivating these feelings in my life is by creating routines based around those feelings. For example, being that I have always wanted Mondays to be easy I developed time blocks that were in accordance with the things I wanted to get done to set me up for success for the rest of the week. Some of those things being: getting the weekly grocery shopping done, getting laundry done and setting time aside to do some life-admin tasks like scheduling doc appointments, etc.
Take stock of what sort of things you need to do to foster the feelings you want to feel on Mondays. Start with just one day so you don't feel too overwhelmed by this process.
3) Stay consistent with the soul-based routine. I know, I know. You probably hate the word consistency. It's a pretty scary word because it involves being committed (oops another scary word!) Trust me, I used to be one of the biggest commitment-phobes like ever. Underneath it all I probably am still. I like to run away from what's good for me in an effort to constantly self-sabotage. Why? Who knows. But, what I can tell you is that committing to and staying consistent with your soul-based routine is what will ensure that your Mondays stay high vibe week after week. I mean really though, don't you want to feel good?
P.S. It is A LOT easier to remain consistent with your soul-based routine than it is just a plain old rigid routine (puke!)
That's it. That is all you have to do to create high vibe Mondays my love.
