Why Does This Monday Suck? (Click here to tell us why yours does!)
After a beautiful NFL Week 1 Sunday Funday, hitting the pillow last night was accompanied by a major onset of the Sunday Scaries. Falling asleep with your phone in your hand and your light on was the least of your problems. Waking up at 6AM to a half full, luke warm Gatorade realizing that "Oh no, it's Monday."
You've come to the realization that after setting 27 minutes worth of "3 more minutes" of sleep (yes, that's 9 mini snoozes for all of those out there trying to do the math in your head), that you're officially addicted to sleep. No worse way to start off your week than by facing your newly discovered addiction (or in this case, submitting to its demons)
But hey let's look on the bright side (because that's what we're all about):
Let's get the week started by taking a moment to re-align our long-term goals. Treat this week as a small step in the right direction towards truly living your BEST life.
What three things are you doing this week to get you closer to your dreams?

How to Make Mondays NOT Suck THIS WEEK
Mid-Day Gym Session (Going to the Gym at Lunch)
We know what you're thinking: Oh wow, now this Manifest guy is on a health kick and is here to shame me into the fact that the last exercise I had was walking to the fridge for another Bud Light or Spiked Seltzer during the Giants Cowboys game last night..
- A mid-day endorphin induced high
- Potential for a sick Instagram Swole Sesh/Mirror Pic with the #MakeMondaysNOTsuck
- A HUGE boost in self-efficacy
- A better half of the day (Imagine coming back to work after an intense workout to grind out the last few hours in the office?)
- Boosted Productivity
- More free time at the end of the day!
Strategies for Action
- Find a gym close-by your work and go pump some iron.
- Develop a workout plan well in advance so that you have some thing to work off of - Our suggestion is to stick to exercises that you're comfortable with since you're on a time crunch
- Pack your bag the night before with everything you'll need for the workout and the shower afterwards (don't go back to work smelly)
- Have a plan for your Post-Workout meal - don't forget that you need to replenish your depleted body!
- #Gainz baby!! (Not a strategy, but still - #Gainz)
