Love my view for the day! Monday’s are usually my “get life back on track day”. Does anyone else need one of those each week?! 🙋🏼♀️
Monday’s are my favorite day of the week and are so important to me because they set the tone for my whole week ahead. I hold them sacred and try to be as intentional with my time on these days as I can. I usually start with my bible study for the first part of the morning and then shift gears to writing my to-do list for the day. On Monday’s I meal plan or grocery shop and meal prep. Usually that looks like sitting right here scrolling thru different cookbooks or Pinterest to find recipes for the week, then I write down my shopping list and actually plan out our breakfasts, lunches and dinners on a white board that lives on my fridge so I know what my cooking schedule looks like 🤣🤦🏼♀️... I know I’m a total nerd that I geek out over this so much haha. I have just found that if I’m not hyper scheduled and planned out with cooking then it doesn’t happen and we end up eating poorly throughout the week. I also REALLY love getting our meals organized, grocery shopping and cooking so even tho it is a lot of work it is also my way of self care. It’s funny, I used to feel really guilty about taking Mondays to just relax, cook and enjoy the day getting ready for my week. I felt like I was a bad business woman by not working 24/7 every single day always at my desk planning for new things. But then I realized that I was losing my joy and felt so overwhelmed with everything on my plate that I became debilitated and felt stuck. So about this time last year I started giving myself permission to have a day (during the work week!) to myself where I do things that fill me up and give me joy so that when I do return to work the next day I feel energized and ready to take on the week! I know Monday’s have become my safe haven at this time in life and that it will probably ebb and flow as I step into different seasons but I think the principle of taking a day, or a hour, or even 30 minutes every week to do something that fills YOU up and gives you energy is so important and can add so much value to every day life! .
K rant done! 🤗❤️✌🏻
