1. Change your Mentality
Practice changing your mentality from negative to positive, especially when it comes to the Monday workday blues. Start your morning by thinking what you’re grateful for, and how you can make each day great. Highly successful individuals look forward to their days beginning, because they are out there making their dreams a reality. You may be surprised by how your behaviors will start to respond to what you tell your mind. You will be able to produce more throughout the entire week, rather than taking valuable time to rev up at the beginning and wind down at the end.
This is the best way to overcome an afternoon energy slump, according to women at the top. The most important tasks each day are typically the tasks that we usually avoid most. On a daily basis, be mentally prepared to tackle on daily goals early on, which have the greatest influence on your performance and therefore success. Write down everything that you need to take care of and prioritize it under its level of importance, with the most important being first on the list.
3. Recharge the Battery
Your time on the evenings and weekends should be saved for rest. Look at yourself as a battery that needs to be recharged. You can simply do this through meditation, finding a creative outlet, or being active. When you give yourself time to not focus on work and focus on yourself, this improves happiness and productivity, and undoubtedly. You will find yourself more productive and less mentally exhausted, especially for those 5 days during the work-week.
By changing your mentality, committing to your goals, and recharging your battery; you will squeeze more productivity and clarity out of the work-week. These small shifts in behavior and mentality will have a measurable impact on your business, life, and success.
