7 Ways to Motivate Your Day


It’s after the weekend and back to the office or back to your day job. Even if you work from home you should always be ahead of the game. The best thing to do to get ahead of the weekend is to get your mindset there. The art of being self-motivated is to be and stay focused.

  1. Write a To Do List the night before. Keep it simple. Prioritize by importance and work your way down. You should end up with at least 5 to 7 items by the time you’re done. This is a guide that will keep you in check just in case distractions come your way (and you know they will) and if you don’t get them all done, it’s OK!!
  2. Go to bed early!! This is a must!! Neither you nor anyone around you will get things done if you are at the office complaining that you didn’t get enough rest so REST!!
  3. Rise Early!! When that alarm clock strikes, get up and get busy. If you’re a snoozer, set your clock an hour earlier so you can get that last bit of rest in. It’s a mind game, I tell you.
  4. Breakfast!! It’s important to eat something in the morning. I’m a coffee drinker so the first thing I do is start a pot of coffee and get some breakfast in my system.
  5. Move!! You’re body needs circulation of the blood. It could be Yoga, the Gym or even walking your dog in the morning. At least 20 to 30 minutes will give you that boost of energy that you need.
  6. Pick a “Quote of the Day” or “Mantra” you can do this while you’re in the shower. I used to pick a status of the day for Facebook and everyday I’d post it. You can pick a quote just to keep for yourself. It would be a good idea to pick something motivating to last you through the day.
  7. Commit to being motivated. It’s not hard to do especially when you know what you have to do for the day.

Self-Motivation is the key to all your days especially through these trying times when you don’t know if you’ll be laid off next and you don’t know if your boss or co-workers are trying to figure out another way to throw you off your game. Days can be tough but if you organize ahead of everyone, you’re already winning. Don’t get stuck under the bus and definitely don’t let anyone throw you under the bus either. Aim on having a wonderfully, productive week and it’ll happen for you.
