Mondays are known for being the worst days of the week. Although it’s easy to remain in the post-weekend slump, it’s important to pull yourself out of it so that you can be motivated to get work done.

Mondays are known for being the worst days of the week. Although it’s easy to remain in the post-weekend slump, it’s important to pull yourself out of it so that you can be motivated to get work done. Being stuck isn’t beneficial and only allows negative thoughts to fester. Here are some tips on how to get out of the Monday funk.

Ignore social media: After the weekend is over and you’ve returned to work, you’ll probably have the desire to see what everyone else is doing. Refrain from checking your phone for the latest updates. It will just make you long for the weekend and regret going to work. Instead, concentrate on your work and then check your phone when you get home.

Wear your favorite outfit: Wearing your favorite work clothes can put you in a positive mood. When you look your best, you usually feel your best. This confidence can result in a can-do attitude that permeates the workplace. Use this new outlook to tackle some tough tasks and stay at the top of your game.

Laugh with others: This tip is so simple that it seems a bit silly. Although it might be a little ridiculous, laughter is a great way to get out of a slumber. No one should sit at a desk all day with a solemn expression on their face. Make sure you have some fun with your work. Love your work!

Work smarter: There are people who do their best work early in the morning and then there are people that work better later in the day. You know yourself best. Arrange your schedule based on the fluctuations of your energy levels. When you are the most tired, stick to easy tasks and when you are the most alert, fling yourself headlong into those more complex projects.

Keep track of accomplishments: Just because you are an adult doesn’t mean you can’t reward yourself for a job well done. Keep a list of your achievements at work or some of your own personal victories within eyesight.

When you begin to zone out or become unfocused, your eye will catch the list and you’ll be reminded of all your accomplishments. That little reminder can give you a boost of motivation so that you’ll complete your work.
