It all starts in the kitchen. Treat yourself to a slow-paced morning ritual of tea and a healthy breakfast. Rushing out the door first thing Monday morning will set the tone for the entire week. Slow down and enjoy your morning.
Keeping with the slower pace, take a couple of minutes to tidy up your space. Wipe down the table top, pick up any laundry from the floor, and make your bed. As easy as it is to roll out of your bed and go to work Monday mornings, taking a couple of extra minutes to tidy will make a huge difference.
THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT

Answer any unopened emails, respond to any missed texts or calls, clear your voicemail, and quickly check social media platforms. Start your week right by not creating a mental clutter of unanswered notifications.
