Fresh start Mondays
Ah, Sundays—the supposed day of relaxation, leisure, and preparation for the week ahead. But sometimes they come with an unwanted sidekick: the Sunday Scaries. That nagging feeling of unease as Monday slowly approaches. But Mondays can be more than just the start of another workweek. They can be a fresh start brimming with inspiration and limitless potential.
And research actually confirms this! Mondays really do possess the ability to act as fresh starts, and funnily enough, it's officially known as "The Fresh Start Effect." Similar to significant occasions like New Year's Day or birthdays, Mondays act as temporal landmarks – those special points in time that trigger our desire for positive change. These landmarks provide us with an opportunity to leave behind old routines, learn from past experiences, and embrace new opportunities for a true fresh start – and we get to experience this fresh start magic every single week!
