Posted in News by Faun on 09 Apr 2018.

Every entrepreneur wants to get ahead in their field, however its essential not to burn the candle at both ends. As it is not sustainable and unrealistic in the long run. Here are 5 tips to kick those Monday blues

1. Get to bed early on Sunday evening. According to Business Insider UK by hitting the snooze button repeatedly, we're training our minds to be confused by the alarm sound. Instead of recognizing it as the "get out of bed" tone, it's the "just a few minutes more" sound — something that can continue indefinitely.

2. Get active, walk/cycle to work or join a lunch time class. Researchers at the University of Birmingham monitored 56 sedentary office workers at the university to see if walking during the day would improve their office outlook. The volunteers were instructed to walk for 30 minutes during their usual lunch period, at least three times a week. The study found that strolls may boost employees’ moods, as well as increase their ability to manage stress in the office.

3. Set goals for the week ahead. priorities the importance of each goal and set deadlines. Tick them off as the week passes here you will recognise the progress you are making. You will also be able to identify your contribution to the company quite easily.

4. Avoid the office Debbie downers. Keep your mind positive by surrounding yourself with upbeat colleagues. Seeing the positive qualities in others helps bring out the positive qualities in yourself. Communicating in a positive and constructive way will change the way your listeners receive your feedback.

5. Save the meetings for Tuesdays if possible. Preparation is key when you are pursuing goals. Monday mornings are where missed e-mails sent over the weekend are caught up on, anything that wasn’t finished by Friday is taken care of for the new week that lies ahead.

Follow these tips and your Sunday evening dread will soon be a thing of the past. If you are interested in getting active in the workplace, contact The Liffey Trust Studios for a list of lunch time classes.
