A Case of the Mondays? Let's think positively

Aloha Dreamboarders,

    Got a Case of the Mondays? I have heard this once or twice in my life. It’s a pretty interesting phrase when you think about it. A case of the Mondays? What does that even mean? Is it a sickness? Is it contagious? I really have no idea, but from what I can gather it seems to be a lack of motivation to start your work week.

    In this segment Aloha Dreamboard intends to help jumpstart your week to be awesome.  So what are some techniques you could practice to energize your week?

    Let’s start with your morning. One thing Pam Grout recommends in her book E3 is to play music while you get ready. But not just any music, music that is happy, uplifting, and inspirational. For instance, my favorite song to listen to in the morning is “I Believe I Can Fly” by R. Kelly.  This song works for me the best because it reminds me of a goal of mine.  Another technique you could use to motivate your week is to list the things you are grateful for.  By listing the things you are grateful for it will help remind you why you are going to work, and what allows you to do the things you enjoy.  


Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
