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:

So there you go. Three websites that can inspire me or motivated me when I am not motivated.
