For those who work Monday to Friday, you are all too familiar with the Sunday night blues. The week has been slow and perhaps at times a little painful and the weekend has whizzed past. I am going to give you some tips on how to get motivated for Monday Morning….
Tip 1 – Avoid Negative People
If you are surrounded by people that are moaning about the impending doom of the work week ahead, then distance yourself. Try to change up the people around you, if you are in a group of people that think positively in the potential of the week ahead, it will probably rub off on you.
Tip 2 – Prepare
Feeling unprepared for your week ahead can make anyone feel anxious and just want to hide under the covers. Make a list of things that need to be done before Monday morning and get them done! Be it your washing and ironing or some paper work, getting it done early on in the day can make you feel less negative towards going to work the next day.
Tip 3 – Pamper
Once you’ve done the chores for the day, take some time for yourself. Run yourself a nice bubble bath, paint your nails and slip into some cosy pyjamas. Taking this time to pamper yourself will relax you and get you ready for an early night too!
Tip 4 – Take action on your needs
If you’re really tired, go to bed early. If you’ve been desperate to get a start on that boxset, do it! What I am trying to say is that if you don’t fulfil your needs and desires, they may play on your mind.
Tip 5 – Achieve something everyday
We are constantly bombarded with high-flying CEO’s shouting that we should be making monumental accomplishments every day. This can be a terrifying notion, but take their words with a pinch of salt. You can achieve something everyday, but don’t worry if your success doesn’t make the news. Be it big or small, make sure you achieve something everyday, but remember, don’t compare your success to others – it will only make you bitter.
Tip 6 – Spend time with your loved ones
If you’re like me and your household is very hectic during the week and you can sometimes forget you live with other people, then make sure you spend quality time with those you love.
Tip 7 – Make a list
If you’ve got a busy week ahead, or you’re worried about things, then make a list. Listing down your worries before you go to bed will allow you to be able to rest peacefully without the worry of forgetting something!
I hoped this helped!
