Do you jump on social media right when you wake up or get into the office on Monday? You're not the only one. #MondayMotivation has become a popular hashtag that people have been using increasingly more often to share quotes and images that help them get in the groove and start the new week off right — usually by way of exercise or work.

Your friends and followers may appreciate a nice boost of motivation that you decide to share, even if they're not too happy to be up so early or back at work after the weekend. Combining a good quote with a good image usually does the trick!

Here are five places to look for quotes and images that you can tag with #MondayMotivation when you post them to your social profiles.

What We Like
  • Mix of funny, entertaining, and inspirational quotes and images.

  • You can filter the motivations by work, fitness, truths, people, and other options.

What We Don't Like
  • The dominant slant is for female readers.

  • Vast selection may eat up your Monday morning.

Pinterest is the social network for people who love visual imagery, and with its advanced search capabilities, you can drill down your results to find exactly what you're looking for. When you plug "Monday Motivation" into the search bar, not only will you get to see all sorts of great images you can repin, but you'll also be able to filter through them further by clicking on the list of related search suggestions. Click on Quotes, Fitness, Humor or any other term for more specific results.

If you'd rather send a private pin to someone instead of posting it publicly, you can do it via Pinterest's private messaging feature.

What We Like
  • Quirky mixed with serious motivational content.

  • Aimed at all readers, not just one group.

What We Don't Like
  • More text content than image content.

  • Some almost-adult content.

Tumblr is one of the most popular blogging platforms right now, and because of its highly visual interface and easy reblog feature, a lot of great images get passed around. Tumblr also has an extremely active fitness community (called Fitblrs), which is largely centered around the #MondayMotivation content you'll find there. Using the search bar for the term will show you some related search terms (inspiration, success, motivating quotes) along with some suggested blogs to follow and a grid of posts similar to Pinterest's format -- which you can filter by most popular, most recent, or even by post type.

If you're curious about what other tags users put on their posts most often, you can have a look through Tumblr's most popular tag list.

What We Like
  • Millions of images tagged #mondaymotivation.

  • Emphasis on physical, state of mind, and quality-of-life motivation.

What We Don't Like
  • Only a small percentage of the images include quotes.

  • Some images are NSFW.

Instagram has a massively active fitness community, so when you search through the posts tagged with #MondayMotivation, you'll find a mix of sweaty selfies, quotes, chiseled bodies, workout equipment, and quotes on images. Unfortunately, Instagram doesn't make it very easy to search for posts with multiple hashtags like Pinterest and Tumblr do, so you may have to search through #MondayMotivation posts and #Quotes posts separately. You can, however, use a specific third-party tool to help you track certain hashtags on Instagram more easily.

When you find a #MondayMotivation post on Instagram that you want to share, you can also use another third-party app to repost it to your own Instagram profile.

What We Like
  • Text-heavy Twitter contains plenty of images in motivation hashtag.

  • Many of the quotes are solid advice and are not quirky or humorous.

What We Don't Like
  • Some tweets are taken out of context, so they lose motivational value.

  • Motivational posts are interspersed with too many self-promotional tweets.

If you want to track super active hashtags, there's no better place to look than on Twitter. As with any phrase or hashtag you plugin into Twitter's search bar, you can switch between the top tweets and live tweets as they're coming in for #MotivationMonday. You'll find everything from regular text-based tweets and links to articles, to images with quotes and funny GIFs

You don't have to manually retweet another Twitter user's tweet. Instead, ​retweet with just a couple of clicks of your mouse or taps of your smartphone.

We Heart It

What We Like
  • Good mix of inspiring visuals and pithy advice.

  • Lots of feel-good quotes.

  • Ad-free experience.

What We Don't Like
  • Some images aren't motivational, just tagged that way.

  • Account is required to view all the motivational posts.

So, we've covered all the major social networks where #MondayMotivation is huge. By doing some simple searching, you can find all sorts of great quotes and images that you can repin, reblog, repost or retweet.

We Heart It, however, is another lesser-known resource that's especially popular with women looking for inspiring photos and quotes. It's an ​image-sharing platform that allows users to upload their own images, follow users whose content they like, create collections of images they like the best (similar to Pinterest boards), and share any image to Facebook, Tumblr or Twitter. With so many motivational quotes being shared on this platform every day, it's the perfect place to find loads of #MondayMotivation images.

You can use the search bar to search for #MondayMotivation images, but it helps you have an account set up first.
