It’s Monday, and while some of us are slowly getting back into the groove, others are enthusiastically taking on the day. No matter what side of the spectrum you fall on, I’m back with a few things to add to your week to kick it up a notch. As usual, you don’t have to add all of them, but the goal is to try something new and perhaps instill a few good (and fun!) routines.

Shall we get started? Here are 5 things to try this week!

Say Thank You: There’s nothing better than starting your day on the right foot. One way is to begin each day by saying thank you for all of the things that are going right in your life. Soon, you’ll find the good things will keep expanding.

Use Baking Soda: Baking soda is a natural wonder. It works on everything from cleaning your hair to cleaning your kitchen sink. This week, if you’re looking for a quick way to whiten your teeth or a gentle facial scrub, add a little baking soda. You’ll be amazed at what it can do!

Get Political: Haven’t been keeping up with the political debates so far? It’s time to start paying attention. With just a few months left until the November elections, you should get acquainted with both federal and local issues. Aside from digging into the details of Romney vs. Obama, make sure you take some time to find out what’s going on in your own city and state.

Write It Down: Yes, everybody and their mama has a blog, but that shouldn’t stop you. Whether you keep a physical paper journal or type your thoughts online for all the world to see, be sure to document your life. When you look back, you’ll be amazed at how far you’ve grown (or not) and hopefully you’ll be reminded of some really great times in your life.

Talk to Strangers: I recently signed up for a Facebook challenge to make 30 Videos in 30 Days. Insanity! But this challenge has forced me to think out of the box. Over the weekend, I decided to whip out my camera and interview a couple of street musicians. What I learned was that you can be inspired by just about anyone.

That’s it for now, Clutchettes. What’s on your to-do list this week?
