Some weeks seem too long, and our tasks become overwhelming. That is when we are looking for other activities or distractions to keep us motivated to make it to the weekend when we can relax and forget about our responsibilities for a little while. And what is better to energize you and keep you motivated than watching a good movie at the end of the day? Settling in at home with a movie, a blanket, and a good snack can turn your day around. However, the selection can be tough, so here are 7 movie recommendations for each day of the week.
Monday: a little bit of courage
Monday seems to be the toughest day of the week. You find yourself trying to get back into the routine and the rhythm of the week. It might take you a few hours to readjust and catch up with the tasks you need to handle during the rest of the week. That is when you need courage and inspiration the most, and that is why this day should end with Thelma & Louise. Nothing will inspire you more than watching two women take charge of their destiny and fight the odds against them. Be the Thelma or the Louise of your own life … just make sure you change the ending.
Tuesday: a little bit of romance
Tuesday feels better than Monday. You are back on track and know exactly what you have to do the rest of the week. Still, you might get home at the end of the day looking for something to give you comfort and allow you to unwind. This is the perfect night to watch How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, have a laugh, and fall in love with romance again. Andie and Ben will take you through a roller coaster of emotions as they figure out what love and relationships are all about. You will end the second day of your week on a very optimistic note.
Wednesday: a little bit of inspiration
Wednesday marks the middle of the week, and that is when you might hit a slump. You have made it through two days, but you have two more to go, which might make your week seem like a prolonged one. That is when you begin searching for inspiration to motivate you to reach the remaining goals of the week. Brittany Runs a Marathon is the perfect dose of an inspiring story to keep you going. If she didn’t give up, you wouldn’t want to give up either.
Thursday: a little bit of family
Thursday means you are almost there; you can see the weekend at the end of the tunnel. This is what might make it harder to concentrate at work or fulfill all of your tasks. Your day will probably leave you feeling exhausted and, at times, frustrated, so you need a little pick me up by the time you get home. For this scenario, it is recommendable to watch an animated movie: Brave. It is the perfect cure for days that make you question how well the week is going. You will simply feel a sense of comfort as you become part of this family’s bear journey.
Friday: a little bit of traveling
Finally Friday! The day people look forward to the most. When your clock strikes 5 PM, you are free to do anything you want with your weekend. Most people will opt to go out, see their friends, get a drink, grab a bite, and begin the 48 hours of freedom with laughter. Others choose to stay in and relax, recharge their energies. If you are part of the latter, Mamma Mia is the perfect movie for you. It has great food, great drinks, great music, and great scenery — everything you need to transport to another country and enjoy life.
Saturday: a little bit of music
Saturday is officially the first weekend day. You can sleep in, spend time with your family and your pets, see friends you haven’t seen in a while, and enjoy the day without jumping from task to task. By the end of it, you probably want to sit on your couch and rest before you take advantage of your last day of freedom. The best way to do that is by watching In The Heights. Its music will lift you up, and its spirit will give you the motivation you need to continue working for your dreams.
Sunday: a little bit of childhood memories
Sunday ends up being a blue day. You know by the time it’s over, it will be time to start the week again and fall back into your routine. If you feel those Sunday blues, the best thing you can do is connect with your most precious childhood memories. Inside Out is the perfect movie for this scenario, allowing you to connect with your emotions as well.
If your week seems too long, you lose inspiration, you can’t wait for the weekend, or you want to escape your routine, these 7 movie recommendations for each day of the week will keep you going and motivated.
