Finding Motivation After a Long Weekend

It’s Tuesday the day after Labor Day Weekend and most people are not excited to be back at work.  So here are some motivational tips that may help you to get back into the groove.sleepy

Make a Plan – It may sound too simple and maybe even a little dull, but making a plan can help you to get more accomplished.  Even a simple checklist can get you going in the right direction.

Get up and Walk Around – Instead of just sitting at your desk  or your workstation like a zombie get up and walk around and greet your fellow workers.  If you job doesn’t allow you to walk around then go for a walk on your lunch time.  Get the blood pumping by moving around.  For every 60 minutes of work, get up and move around for 10.

Turn off the Distractions – Yes this means your phone needs to be either put on silent or just turned off.  Those pesky alerts are distracting enough on a regular day, on a day after a long holiday can really kill your production.

Focus – Focus on one thing at a time.  Instead of multi-tasking and becoming overwhelmed, simply just do one thing at a time.  This will help you to see some success, and success breeds success.

Drink Water – Instead of pounding down that 2nd, 3rd, or 4th cup of coffee, drink water.  Water will hydrate you and give you energy and the ability to focus.  I’m not a barbarian so yes go ahead have a cup of coffee but too much caffeine can make if difficult to focus on one thing and be counter productive.
