Happy Monday to all you Just Love readers out there!

My name is Julie and I am so honoured to be writing for the Just Love motivational Monday post for today!!

So first off? Who got up early this morning? …And early isn’t a set time that I want to define. By early, I mean, who got up at a time where they felt refreshed, excited for the day (hard on a Monday, I know), energized and at a time that was good for you.

I’ve recently struggled with poor sleep hygiene and I’m sooo not a morning person. I’d like to be, and I hope I can be (more on that later ?), but I’ve learned that we can’t obsess too much about the numerical time, but more so the time that feels good to us and our souls.

For those of you who did get up “early” today, I’m so proud of you! Didn’t you get to accomplish so much more throughout your Monday?! And for those of you who didn’t, don’t worry. And I mean that in the most sincerest way possible. Just Love is going to help you get there! Luckily I had plans to meet with the lovely Melissa Melottey this morning at 9am which realistically turned in to 9:35am because well we just accepted life for what it is. So basically read this quote (below), get inspired and stay tuned for some amazing tips and tricks to better your sleep hygiene!

Shout out to Meliss for this amazing opportunity. I hope I didn’t scare anyone away ? because in the end, I Just Love ❤️

Sleep well my friends and have the best night!

Create a Go-To Happy Playlist ♡

Hello my loves,

Everything I listen to (on a regular basis) is happy. I refuse to listen to anything else because music is the easiest way to control your mood. It can be super hard to snap out of a sad mood and become happy; so music is the first thing I turn to when I feel down.

I think its very important for everyone to have a “Go-To Happy Playlist” on hand for when a little extra motivation is needed. Find 5-10 songs that really resonate with you and get you into a joyous mood. Combine them into a playlist and call it, “My Happy Songs”. Then commit to listening to it whenever you feel down, annoyed or just a little bit off track. You will be surprised by how fast your mood will have changed after that 5th song.

In case your mind is blank and you can’t think of any songs, I’ve decided to share my playlist. So below you will find my go-to happy songs. I hope this inspires you to create your own and to take control of your emotions.

Hello my loves,

I just wanted to make a note that I am battling the flu at the moment and I’m finding it very hard to write/get creative. I’m going to try to get a post up for tomorrow or Friday at the latest.

In the meantime, for those of you who aren’t signed up for my Monday Morning Motivational Mail, here is a sample of what they look like. Sign up is on the main page on the left sidebar.

“Happy Monday Everyone and Welcome to Monday Morning Motivation Mail!!!

What am I grateful for today?
Let’s take one min to write down three things.

I am grateful for this wonderful long weekend that has allowed me to have more quality time with my mom.
I am grateful for the sunshine that’s been keeping me feeling so warm today and in the past few days.
I am grateful for my legs because they allow me to dance and explore the world.

Weekly task:

Community is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Have you noticed that neighbors are not speaking to each other any more? Growing up, I remember playing with the other kids on my street and my parents always got together with our neighbors. Now it seems like a surprise if neighbors even acknowledge each other.
My task for you this week is to attempt at bringing back the love in your community. If you see a neighbour outside, smile, wave or ask them how they are. I bet you will both leave the conversation feeling happier. There isn’t a soul out there that doesn’t feel a loving connection when someone intends to spread love. So intend it and see what happens. <3

I hope you all have a fabulous week and as always, I’m sending you so much love!

Lots of Love,

Melissa Melottey ♡
