Happy Monday! I’ve written about having a positive spin on Mondays – how are you all going with this? Monday can really set up your week; if you play it right. Here are some ideas for winning at Mondays (and remember, even if you don’t think these are great ideas, it’s better to execute a middling idea than not action a great idea).

Firstly, if you don’t look forward to Mondays, you are interacting with people. There are no boring people, you’re just not asking the right questions! Have a think about this. The language you use affects the way you see the world (and Mondays). Two further thoughts on this: If you are really dealing with people you don’t like, on Mondays or any other day, perhaps you need to change your contacts…and furthermore, the people you dislike are often the people who remind you most of yourself!

Secondly, time and tide run through the roughest day. Courtney Dauwalter, world class ultramarathoner, talks about the ‘pain cave’. She knows there will be pain during an ultramarathon and prepares for it. She frames this as a necessary stimulus for growth – you can’t sit on your couch and expect to become mentally resilient. She then imagines pain as a place, that she can come to, and then leave, putting her in control. Finally, the ‘pain cave’ – combining the two thoughts – inside the cave you fear to enter is the treasure you seek. As an aside, having personally run Australia’s shortest ultramarathon, I am in awe of this athlete!

Finally, for those of you who really, really, really can’t face Mondays, perhaps YOU don’t have to. Beyoncé has Sasha Fierce, Kobe Bryant had Black Mamba. Perhaps you need a Monday Alter Ego! You have to do the things that vote for the person who want to become – and look how successful these alter egos can be.

For everyone, we believe that having a usual GP or General Practice is central to each person’s care and recommend that people with any health issues that come to the attention of other health professionals should be advised to attend their usual GP or General Practice rather than a specialised service (ie a place not providing the holistic care a specialist GP would).   If  they say that they don’t have a usual GP or general practice, they should be helped to find one and to actually attend it. Call PartridgeGP on 82953200 or make an appointment online here.
