Monday Motivation | NJ Brand Photographer

Monday's are tough! We're still in weekend mode but our list is long with things to do. Let's help each other make the transition a little bit easier. On Mondays, I will share a tip or trick I use to help me ease into the week. Hope it inspires you to take action and jumpstart into your day.

Let's talk about morning rituals. How do you start your day? Today's #mondaymotivation is to encourage you to keep your phones away and your eyes off the computer screen. Start your day with a moment of peace and grounding. Carve out some time for yourself to reflect, explore and think. Maybe it's a mediation, reading a book (this is what I do) or writing in your journal. Try to connect with yourself first before you start connecting with others. I know you are BUSY but you always will be. Even if it is only a short 10 minutes at first. Shift your mindset, find the time and create the space. This practice will help your focus, your productivity and your outlook.

I swear by this! Every morning, I wake up at 530 AM, pour my coffee and read for 20 minutes uninterrupted. I even put on a timer. I read business books, fiction, magazines. I LOVE this me-time of the day and it fills my tank. Once it's done, I am ready to take on the day.
