Starting on Empty
Do you come back from your weekend needing another weekend to recover?
“How to start the week” is one of the most popular questions that I am asked.
Ironically, much of the “starting the week” stress is self-inflicted.
It is either due to not being prepared or irresponsible behavior over the weekend.
“If you start your week with nothing in your tank…
then it is bound to be a rough start.”
Ever start your day and realise that you forgot to plug-in your phone the night before?
Unfortunately, many people do this with their body.
And then they wonder why Mondays are so tough.
Start Fully Charged
If you want to start your week right, you need to take steps to take care of yourself and your obligations.
Here are 4 Ways to Start the Week with Your Batteries Fully Charged:
Get Enough Rest – Many people claim they need a weekend to recover from the work week. However, when they get there, they end up getting less sleep than during the week. Have the discipline to get the rest you need. If your tank is empty when you walk in the door Monday, it’s going to be a rough week.
Know What You Have to Do – Your to do list is just as important. If you are unaware of what you have to do and when it is due, you are setting yourself up for a fall. Look at your list before you leave the house. You just might remind yourself of something you need to be ready for.
A Good Finish, Allows a Good Start – Ever come back to a project that you left in disarray? It’s a mess. Trying to figure out where you were and where everything goes. Make sure you finish the previous week right. Clean up before you leave the office and tie up loose ends. That way, you won’t walk into a mess upon your return.
Positive Attitude – Bring your best attitude to the new week. Being positive can overcome many of the week’s obstacles. Your attitude defines your reality more than you think.
