Life-Changing Habits To Start Your Week Off Right

From Manic Mondays to Monday Blues, it's safe to say we have a culture that simply doesn't like Mondays.

Inspiration

I have a love-hate relationship with Mondays. It's the beginning of the week and is a welcomed fresh start, but the weekend I'm ready for is so far away and the one that just passed seems like it was only 20 minutes long.

From Manic Mondays to Monday Blues, it's safe to say we have a culture that simply doesn't like Mondays, except for the ones we have off because that means we get a longer weekend.

But whether we like it or not, Mondays are going to keep coming around, so we might as well make the best of them. Changing our perception of Mondays can change our week and so much more, it's all about perspective.

Check out a few habits that can make your Monday more exciting and a day you actually look forward to.

1. Set A Bedtime For Sunday Night

The true success of a Monday morning and a good work week begins on Sunday night. How you wrap up the weekend can truly determine the flow of your Monday, which in turn could determine how well your week goes. Setting a bedtime for Sunday night is almost a guaranteed way for you to wake up feeling well-rested when you wake up on Monday morning. It's no secret the more rest you get, the better you feel. While getting 8 hours of sleep a night feels like an act of Congress for some, I've found it's helpful to at least try to get as close as I can on Sunday nights.

There is no way for me to hide the absolute joy unspeakable that I have about the fact that fall is just a few days away (September 22)! While there are a billion-and-one things that I adore about this time of the year, one of my favorites is preparing warm dishes, on purpose, to contrast the cooler weather that's headed our way.

It's been 573 days since my last New York Fashion Week. That's one year, six months, and 24 days. The last time I was in Manhattan, February 2020, was just as Big Rona was placing a chokehold on the world. I would have never guessed that while I was living my best life in the NYC streets, a pandemic would soon change my life completely. Because of the state of the world, there were no shows in September and by February 2021, the fashion houses were trying to figure out how to put on runway shows which led many brands to the digital space.

If you haven't heard by now, Yahya Abdul Mateen II is the 'it guy' in Hollywood. He currently stars in Nia DaCosta's adaptation of the cult thriller Candyman, and he hasn't slowed down since. His appeal? His unwavering charm, his statuesque gladiator silhouette, and unfamiliar name that commands the room. But he's much more than that.

I was always content with the shape of my body. I never really had major weight issues either. I inherited my small bone structure and my small frame from my mom. I guess you can say I have those good Caribbean genes. I have long arms, long legs, and a short torso. But I also carry my weight well. So, when I gain or lose weight, the distribution of weight is evenly proportioned. At 36, I'm fully grown. I stand 5'4", a DD+, and I don't know where all this ass came from. Now I have a butt I never used to have.
