Dear, Lash+Love, how do I kick the Monday blues?
I can give you every short and long answer but the truth is sometimes you just have to sit in it. Today I set my alarm early, planned to read, immediately check emails but also did myself a favor and DID NOT sign up for my Pilates class. What actually happened is I could barely move until 8, did read The Daily Stoic, made a chai latte and somehow made it out the door. I had a headache by 11 and wanted to go home. There are days when you just can't fight the funk and the difference between 24 year old me and 34 year old me is there's no calling in sick. Whether you're running your own business or working for someone else, go easy on Mondays (unless you're a crazy overachiever then good for you) Be mindful of what you need to get through the day. What does that look like? Write it down. Pay attention to how you feel and figure out if it's your body telling you something or just pure laziness. Today I felt LAZY. So, I forced myself out of it, recorded some videos, blasted MELLOW BEATS on Spotify and told that inner voice to pipe down. Monday's are yours if you make them your own.
