Kick The Week Off Right

The holidays are upon us and if you’re suffering from a Thanksgiving turkey hangover, let’s get you started off right this week. I know everyone behaved themselves over the weekend, right? Wink wink.

Plan it out: Whip out the planner and put your goals on paper. From grocery lists to workout routines, get it down.
Treat yourself: It’s Monday and if you’re feeling a bit ho-hum, grab a fancy cup of coffee, make fun evening plans with a friend over dinner or maybe grab an exercise class together.
Set your soundtrack: Everyone has a theme song. If you don’t, get one. I am obsessed with Flo Rida’s Good Feeling at the moment. Put in your headphones and work to music that makes you feel good. Up that productivity!
Jump! Jump!: I used to despise this trick, but I promise it works. If you are feeling lathargic or just plain blah, do 10 jumping jacks. It’s like pressing the human reset button.
Choose to be positive: Having a positive mindset towards the day is the best way to actually BE happy. You get back what you give out.

Go, go, go start your week off right. You are your best motivator. The first step is the hardest.

How are you getting going today?

  1. I need a jump! If I wasn’t eating breakfast right now, I’d hop up and down for some energy. ;)

    Today I’m joining the Monday night crew for a group run – it’s been way too long.

  2. Great tips! I’m seriously already doing most of these things this week, including listening to that song on repeat. I’m obsessed, and just wish I could convince my husband to like it as much as I do so I can blast it in our apartment.

  3. Seriously needed this today – especially the choosing to be positive piece! I was getting all down and out that it was back to work Monday, I’m at my desk instead of outside enjoying an unexpectedly balmy 60 degree day and did I mention I’m back to work after a glorious few days off? haha. But seriously, thank you for posting this. As usual, you posted it at just the right time and just for ME! love you!

  4. I like to start of the week with a run along the Charles in Boston. The awesome views of the city put me in such an awesome mood! It didn’t hurt that it was 60 degrees this morning either! Perfect running weather :)

  5. Loved these tips. Shoot, I always love your posts!
    I agree that music can play a huge roll in motivation. When I get out of work, I put on some pump-me-up tunes while I get my running clothes on. By the time I head out the door, I am rearing to go!
