How to practice Monday morning affirmations
The great thing about using positive Monday affirmations is that you can practice them any way you want! It all depends on the mood you’re in, the state you want to achieve, and what feels best to you. Whether you want to pump yourself up for the workweek or bring in some calm energy for a busy day ahead, here are three ways you can use these Monday morning affirmations to get your week started on the right foot:
1. Need an energy boost? Say your positive Monday morning affirmation out loud.
If you need an energy boost on Monday morning, saying positive affirmations out loud is the way to go. Pick a Monday affirmation that really pumps you up and repeat it out loud for at least a minute. You can do this in front of a mirror or while moving around your room—however you do it, just make sure it’s high energy!
If you want more affirmations for your Monday pep talk, throw in some of these positive morning affirmations. They’ll make you feel extra powerful and confident as you start your day!
2. Craving calm? Turn your Monday morning affirmation into a meditation mantra.
Craving a sense of calm to start your Monday? Positive affirmations can be turned into meditation mantras. To start, choose a Monday affirmation that makes you feel calm and centered. Sit quietly with your eyes closed and begin to focus on your breath. When you’re ready, introduce your mantra. Say it silently to yourself, repeating for at least 3-5 minutes. If you have the time, feel free to meditate with your positive Monday affirmation for up to 20 minutes!
A little tip: do Mondays really tend to stress you out? Don’t use a regular Monday morning affirmation, but add some affirmations for anxiety into your routine. These calming quotes for anxiety offer an alternative to fearful thoughts and can help bring you a sense of peace—even on a busy Monday morning!
3. Want to set intentions for the week? Write your Monday affirmations in a journal.
As you may have noticed, many of the powerful Monday affirmations listed above can also be used to set intentions for the week ahead. Our favorite way to set intentions is to write them out in a journal. You can use a plain notebook or if you want some additional journaling prompts and inspiration, try a guided gratitude journal like Vertellis Chapters.
Choose a Monday motivation affirmation that excites and inspires you and is something you’d like to strive for this week. For instance: “This week, I will expand my comfort zone. It may not be comfortable but it will be worth it!” Write it in your journal 10-15 times, really being present and intentional as you write your Monday affirmations.
Couple these affirmations for Monday with action
Here’s the thing...you need more than a few motivational statements to make you love Monday morning. Positive affirmations can make a world of difference in shifting your mindset about Mondays, but to see real change, you need to couple them with action!
These affirmations for a new week will help get you inspired and grounded on Monday morning, but what action steps can you take beforehand to set yourself up for success? If you’re not sure, ask yourself—what do I need to do to feel fantastic when I wake up Monday morning? Here are some ideas:
- On Friday, plan your next week so you know exactly what needs to get done on Monday.
- Meal prep on Sunday so you don’t have to worry about meals for the week.
- Make sure you get 8 hours of sleep Sunday night.
- Pick out your clothes the night before so you know exactly what to wear in the morning.
- Wake up early enough to get ready and get to work in a calm, stress-free manner.
Use happy Monday affirmations to create a positive work culture
We all know about Casual Friday, well why not Affirmation Monday? It’s easy for colleagues to all get a “Case of the Mondays” if that’s what’s normalized in the workplace. Why not switch it up and use happy Monday affirmations to create a more positive outlook at the beginning of the workweek?
If you’re in a position to incorporate these motivational statements into your work culture, they can be really powerful. Try having everyone share a Monday motivation affirmation:
- At Monday team meetings.
- In an email chain where each team member states “My Monday affirmation is…”
- On notecards or sticky notes that each team member keeps at their desk.
Want more positive affirmations for a new week to share with your colleagues? Check out these affirmations for success. These Monday morning affirmations will help you and your co-workers be open to opportunities, get a confidence boost, and feel more motivated—just the kind of energy everyone wants at the beginning of the week!
I can’t bring affirmations to work!
Not in a place where you’re comfortable introducing Affirmation Monday at work? No problem! Put your own affirmation for a new week on a sticky note or note card and keep it at your desk where it’s visible. Some curious colleagues will be sure to ask you what it is and you can explain!
And if you’re really not comfortable bringing these motivational statements into work, try it at home. Ask your partner or kids to share affirmations on Monday before work or school. And if you don’t have a partner or kids, ask your friends to start a text thread on Monday morning! Affirmations can be even more powerful when they’re shared in a supportive community.
Additional times to use these powerful Monday affirmations
While the obvious time to practice these powerful statements is (of course) Monday morning, these positive affirmations can be beneficial any day of the week! In fact, two of our favorite times to use these Monday motivation affirmations are Sunday evening and whenever we’re craving some fresh start energy.
Keep in mind though—you can harness the power of Monday affirmations whenever you want! There’s no wrong way, place, or time to use these positive statements. It’s all about finding what works for you.
Use your affirmations for a new week on Sunday evening
If you get the “Sunday scaries”, these affirmations for a new week are a great way to ground yourself before the workweek begins. Journal with them on Sunday evening to wind down for the night or meditate with them right before bed to help you fall asleep. And if the “Sunday scaries” are really intense, try some of these sleep affirmations, too. They’ll help you relax, unwind, and set you up for a great night’s rest.
Whenever you need a fresh start!
Notice a theme in our Monday affirmations? They’re all about embracing that exciting new energy that comes at the beginning of each week. Why not take that energy and use it whenever you need a fresh start?
You can use these Monday morning positive affirmations to feel renewed after a hard day at work or to help you recover from a challenging situation like a break-up or job loss. You can even use them whenever you just need a little extra motivation or energy. No right or wrong here!
Monday affirmations are not a cure-all
Finally, as much as we hate to say it, Monday affirmations will not make everyone instantly love the beginning of the week. Monday morning affirmations are great tools to get you inspired and motivated for the week ahead, but if you find yourself continually dreading Mondays (even after using these positive affirmations for a new week), it could be that you need to change something in your life!
Whether it’s a job that’s draining or feeling frazzled trying to get your kids off to school in the morning, use these affirmations for Monday as part of an experiment. Try them out for a period of time while making sure you’re doing some of the action items listed above, as well. If after some time you’re still feeling like Mondays are your worst enemy, it could be time to consider if something else, like your job or childcare situation, needs to change.
That’s what’s so amazing about these powerful Monday affirmations. Not only are they tools for inspiration and motivation, but they can help you discern if something else in your life needs to shift. So get started! Pick out your favorite happy Monday affirmations from above, make a plan to use them at the beginning of a new week, and start to see the positive shifts that occur when you practice these Monday affirmations!
