Mondays are tough… but not impossible.
I found myself drowning in heaviness and anxiety last week, and the potential for this week already seemed shot. The weekend was good, but now, I have to resume the mundane and pile more responsibility on top of me. How am I supposed to get motivated, have dreams, and secure the bag when I’m already down?
We’ve all been there at some point.
Some of us are still there, and I’m no better. So how can we get motivated? I searched high and low for help, and I found it… on Instagram. Here’s my new favorite workbooks, graphic accounts, and motivators on IG:
Amber Rae is one of my favorite digital artists. She creates motivational and uplifting workbooks and prompts that will help you reflect on your current mental and emotional state. Being both cute and helping her audience be vulnerable and real with themselves, Amber Rae has helped so many people look within and break down the chaos of the mind.
How this helps: Journaling has been said to help the mental process, physically break down, and help you cope with situations that cloud your mind. Amber Rae’s posts give you prompts, maps, and outlines to help inspire and look within to help rewire you.
This bilingual account is focused on alchemy, internal reflection, and your personal relationship to the Universe. Whether or not you believe in the signs or not, this account does its best to influence its audience that brighter days are felt with meditation and reflection.
How this helps: Regardless of your feelings towards alchemy, cosmic significance, or meditation, being able to look within yourself and reflect will help you discover (1) your potential, (2) your potential, and (3) find inner peace within and alongside existence.
Amber Wagner is one of the most influential, iconic voices of digital media right now, and it’s because of her willingness to be transparent and abrasively uplifting. She is the embodiment of love and has the spirit of of both a wildfire and the pep talk you heard from your football coach. Her videos are so inspirational, and I owe a lot to her because she continues to put out the positive messages from her heart for others to hear.
How this helps: As much as I’d like to believe that you need soft, gentle messages of hope, the fact of the matter is that you need to get inspired with fire and passion. Amber Wagner does that. She speaks to the soul with direct, hard-hitting power and motivates you in such a strong way.
At the end of the day, you days (and weeks and months) are what you make it.
Mondays don’t have to be so hard. Search outwardly and you’ll find the answer. Here’s to wishing you the best week. You got this!!!!
