5 Magnificently Mindful Quotes for Your Monday

What if, instead of dreading Mondays, we begin to look at them a bit differently?

What if we stand at the brink of our work weeks as if we’re placing ourselves on a road to great adventure?

What if we realize that the Mindful part of Mondays are about creating our B Here perspective?

Looking at Mondays in this light may be different for many of us.  We’ve spent our lives ending a weekend and starting a new week with apprehension and perhaps even fear.

Starting today, Mindful Mondays will help you shift that mindset, if that’s the one you’ve been carting around, by treating you to five quotes for each day of your week.  I invite you to choose which one you’d like to lead your week remembering that it will set the tone.  Then, absorb it like a second skin.  Tape it above your cubicle.  Paste it to your screensaver.  Or simply write it on a Post-it.

But whatever you do with your chosen quote, do it mindfully.  And do it only for today.  You can choose Tuesday’s quote tomorrow, just as you deal with Tuesday’s events tomorrow.

Ready?  Here’s are your Mag 5 Mindful quotes:

Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.

~ Dr. Seuss

No matter how much pressure you feel at work, if you could find ways to relax for at least five minutes every hour, you’d be more productive.

Dr. Joyce Brothers

This isn’t just “another day, another dollar.” It’s more like “another day, another miracle.

— Victoria Moran (Lit from Within: Tending Your Soul for Lifelong Beauty)

The foundation of greatness is honoring the small things of the present moment, instead of pursuing the idea of greatness.

Eckhart Tolle

Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths, or the turning inwards in prayer for five short minutes.

Etty Hillesum

    I like the second quote by Dr. Brothers. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in my work that all I forget that all I really need to do is stand up, take a deep breath and walk away for a little while. On some days that is easier than others.

    • Beth Wilson says:

      So true, Becky! Standing up and breathing does wonders for the constitution, not to mention the skeletal system. Think I’ll do that right now!
