20 Positive Affirmations for Mondays

Take a deep breath: you can use these Affirmations for Mondays to breathe life back into the first day of the week! Mondays can bring intense feelings of dread and annoyance and is largely regarded as the worst day of the week.

Just take a look at the Monday page at Urban Dictionary! Some of my favorites include:

The biggest waste, of exactly one seventh of your life.


The world’s way of telling us, “Here, take this you little bitch.”

20 Affirmations for Mondays

You might be wishing you had a job to work from home. Or you might be wishing you had a job that would allow you to travel. You might be wishing you could live off a large inheritance and never have to work again!

(Don’t we all!)

But the reality is that there will always be work, and there will always be stress in our lives to varying degrees. Even if you worked from home, there would still be work. Even if you traveled, your job would still be stressful.

The questions is: How will you choose to react when you are met with a stressful situation (or day of the week) that you don’t necessarily want to meet head on?

It’s all about mindset.

Mug "Ugh."

You’re probably here because you want to change your Monday mindset!

That’s awesome!

Affirmations are all about changing our mindset to a more positive, healthy, and joyful one. When we change our mindset, we require our brains to choose behavior that matches our new mindset. With regular change comes newly formed, healthier habits and eventually they become our lifestyle!

What Are Affirmations and How Do They Work?

It is completely possible to use these Monday Affirmations to completely transform your Monday into a day of peace, joy, and intention.

Need more evidence? Watch one of my favorite videos of Dr. Joe Dispenza’s TedX talks and the science behind requiring your brain:

Basically, it’s completely your choice to have a good Monday or to have a dreadful one! Which will you choose?

Monday, Monday


No one should dread Mondays. Why give up a seventh of your life to such negativity? Monday is another day, like any other, and you can accomplish amazing and wonderful things on Monday, same as any other day!

As you say these affirmations, choose one or two that resonate the most to you to repeat throughout the day.

If you find yourself rolling your eyes at these, saying they aren’t going to work, I challenge you to take a breath, say it anyway, and allow the words to be.

Don’t react. Don’t get emotionally attached to Monday as a negative day.

Every time you start feeling upset about returning to work, take a breath.

There is joy, balance, and gratitude to be found in EVERY day… including Mondays!

Here we go!
