It’s Monday again, readers! But fear not, I’ve got some more tips to smash your Monday and motivate you for this week, especially as today is noted as ‘Blue Monday’ (but I totally disagree with whoever said this). We can do anything that life throws at us, whether that’s on our own or with the help of others.
If you’ve read last week’s post, you’ll know I’ll be doing a series of motivational posts on Mondays to help you all out and this is the second one of that series.
To start off, as last week I got a lot of comments saying how helpful the quotes were, I thought I’d start off with that today, to remind you of a few things:
Moving on, I think if you’re more productive on Monday, you’ll be in the right mindset to be more productive during the course of the week!
Stuff to try today!
1) Make a little to-do list
Chances are you’ll forget something you want to do, so the best way is to write it down, whether that be on your phone, laptop, or on a piece of paper. Try not to write too many things on it, otherwise you’ll be annoyed that you haven’t completed them. Best way is to prioritise about 5-10 tasks you’d like to get done, in this case on a Monday. (but don’t bully yourself, if you can’t complete all of them, just add them as the first things to do the next day!)
2) Remove your distractions
I think for most people this is their phone, turn it off (or put it on silent) and move it away from your desk area. That way you won’t be able to check it and you’ll focus on the task you want to complete.
3) Make time for YOU
Have some time in your day where you take a break from everything and do what you love most!
4) Smile more!
You’ll feel more positive and happy within yourself, as smiling is meant to relieve stress, and that’ll make you believe in your goals more!
5) Reflect on your day!
What’s gone well? What’s not gone so well? What do you want to achieve tomorrow? I’d say write this down too, so you can track how far you’ve come.
To finish, I’d like to say to you all:
WORKING HARD IS IMPORTANT. BUT THERE IS SOMETHING THAT MATTERS EVEN MORE: BELIEVING IN YOURSELF.
From experience, I can tell you this is true, so take the pledge BELIEVE and take a step forward and you’ll be closer to your goals than you thought was possible.
