Got a touch of the “Weekend Flu” or the “Monday Blues” today? You’re not alone. However, you shouldn’t let it get you down! Mondays can be tough, but you can get through them – we have faith!
Don’t let Monday get the best of you. Here are some tips from LinkedIn Influencer, J.T. O’Donnell on beating the Monday Blues:
1. Plan your day out on Sunday
When you know exactly what you’re going to be doing on Monday morning, it’s easier for you to mentally prepare and ease into the workweek. Otherwise, you can walk into the office frazzled, confused, and unorganized, which can set you back a few hours.
2. Focus on being positive and upbeat
Try to avoid people who are being “Debbie Downers.” You don’t need that extra gloom and doom on a Monday. Focus on spending your time with positive and upbeat people. Keep it positive!
3. Endorse others
There’s no better way to feel good about yourself than to cheer on and support others. That’s why Mondays are a great time to endorse your colleagues on LinkedIn. (In fact, we call Mondays “Endorse Day.”) When you reach out and tell someone that you think they’re special, they will likely return the favor. Is there a better way to stay positive than to get compliments?
