Opening Chat

Sonia and Lezli chat about how fun it is to visit different spiritual communities and see how folks do things. Each community is completely unique and perfect.

The Sunday Monday Blues

  • The Sunday Monday Blues show up when you just don't want your weekend to come to an end. It can look like apathy, sadness or outright dread of Monday morning.
  • One classic way to stave off the SMB is to fill yourself up with spiritual community on Sunday. Visit a spiritual center, watch a service online, or get together with some like-minded friends.
  • Create a Sunday evening ritual that helps you set your intention for the week.
  • Pre-plan something you'll really enjoy on Monday morning, like a favorite meeting or project. Leave yourself encouraging notes to find or a little morning treat.
  • If the SMB are ongoing, take some time to look within and identify the real problem. What is it you are dreading? Can you find a way to shift that issue?
  • A gratitude practice, especially identifying gratitude around someone or something that is challenging you, can help you change your own attitude. And then, amazingly, the other person often shifts as well!
  • Big picture, SMB are an inside issue, and can only be resolved by looking inward and making some decisions around actions and ideas. What will move you forward? What's holding you back? Get connected with a community that will support you in the healthiest choices.

I just released a new book this month. "Built on Faith: Transform Your Life through Affirmative Prayer" is the how-to on affirmative prayer that I wish I'd had when I was learning. Whether you are just starting affirmative prayer or you're looking for a great textbook for your prayer classes, this is the book for you. www.lezligoodwin.com/builtonfaith
