Affirmations for Monday Blues

When I was younger, I used to buy and read a lot of self improvement books and one of them is a book on affirmations. According to wikipedia, Affirmation is a declaration that something is true.  Some self help books authors like the late Norman Vincent Peale suggests affirming biblical verses like Philippians 4:13 - "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." daily to overcome fear.


Affirmations can be used for all occasions and I thought it might help to overcome Monday blues too. I guess maybe we can repeat statements to ourselves like :-

- I am doing well and getting better in my work/project daily
- I derived satisfaction from my work and I enjoy my tasks/projects
- I will improved and become a better engineer/doctor/accountant/manager ..etc as times goes by.
- I love work, it makes me alive
- etc.


And if we are facing some pressing issues in work which could likely demotivate us on a Monday morning, we can repeat verses like -

- I will be able to solve/rectify this issue this week, I can do it and everything will return back to normal
- Everything will be allright with the project and unlike last week, I can see good results this week
- There's always a solutions to everything and I will look forward to a great weekend ahead, when all problems are solved
-etc


I guess it will be a great way to start a monday morning with a good night sleep, a refreshing cup of good coffee and  positive affirmations on work before starting our new work week. Then, go through our to do list and enjoy the challenge!
