Aren’t sunflowers happy and bright? I think they make a perfect flower for a Monday. And I love surprising people with flowers, especially when my local Trader Joes has such a variety of pretty stems for such a great price.
Mondays are often a hard day for folks. Whether its a return to normalcy (I didn’t do any dishes yesterday so I have a sink full), alarm clocks (yup, mine went off early this morning), or just because you are sad the weekend is over…Mondays often get a bad rap.
- Plan something beautiful. Whether its a coffee date with another creative, a play date with a friend, or blow-drying your hair and putting on make up, plan something for every Monday that helps bring extra beauty in to your day.
- Make a list of happies for your Monday. It can be some quiet time to regroup from the weekend, special lunch date with your littles, find special things to be grateful for and write them down!
- Buy flowers. Most Mondays include a trip to Trader Joes for me (or us, my littles and me). We love the relationships we’ve formed there over 2 years of going every Monday, produce to start our weeks out on a healthy note (to detox from the weekend), and the pretty flowers that greet us when we walk in the door. This week, the flower of choice was sunflowers.
- Breathe. Yup. Its that easy. Sometimes just taking time to breathe, whether you are sitting in traffic or practicing yoga, breathing helps bring life into our whole bodies. Remember, God breathed life into dirt to form man and gave him a soul to long after Him. Breathing is crucial to our well-being.
Enjoy your Monday friends.
