How you spend your Monday will set the tone for the rest of your week. If we dread Mondays, it ruins the rest of the week as well, which is why Monday affirmations play such an important role. Getting into the right headspace will help you focus on the positive and handle roadblocks with grace.
If you spend time dreading Mondays, it’s time for a fresh mindset. Here are some examples of Monday affirmations to incorporate into your weekly routine.
