When you feel like quitting, remember why you started.

Happy MONDAY! TGIM!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: When you feel like quitting, remember why you started.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: As I was thinking about what to write today, I thought I would start by going back to the basics.  Why did I start this blog or this email list called Matt’s Motivational Monday?  It was to bring motivational, inspirational content to your inbox every Monday.  But I will be honest, sometimes I don’t feel that inspired or that motivated to get things done.

So then I go back to the basics.

Matt’s basics involve:

1) Wake up early and do a guided meditation using the meditation app called Insight Timer.  This helps me to be centered.
2) Drinking Matt’s morning smoothie.
3) Doing some exercise sometime that day.  I usually find time at lunch to do exercise but it varies.  Sometimes I do a morning workout.  Sometimes I do a lunchtime workout.  Or once a week I do a workout after work.
4) Be thankful.  Find time to be thankful for things in your life.  Write in a gratitude journal.
5) Read inspirational articles or information and emails.

Some interesting articles and websites I go to are:
