Another workweek is on the way, and that means many will be facing the Monday blues. No rule states people can’t come into work with the same positivity you had when leaving on Friday. Take this information into work with you and watch your workplace transform!
5 Ways To Use Positivity to Have a Great Week
Here are 5 ways positivity can improve your work week ahead:
“This should be the spirit every Monday. Know that something good will always happen.” – Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Just because Monday is the first day of the week, it doesn’t have to be the worst day of the week. Dive into Monday with the same excitement and positive emotion you have on Friday. Every day can be a Friday if you allow it! You’ll find that with a more optimistic outlook, your day will go smoother, be more productive, and you’ll help your colleagues have a better day as well.
Think of every Monday as a fresh start to a week filled with new accomplishments. Banish negative thoughts–like how long it is until next weekend!
2. Find joy in your job
“To be successful, the first thing to do is fall in love with your work.” – Sister Mary Lauretta
It doesn’t matter what day of the week it is if you truly love what you do.
If you honestly aren’t crazy about your current career, try to justify your job by writing down what service or benefit your job brings to society. If you’re still not sure about why your job benefits the world in a positive way, consider this job a stepping stone toward finding the career you’re truly passionate about.
3. Spread positivity in your workplace
“Keep my word positive. Words become my behaviors. Keep my behaviors positive. Behaviors become my habits. Keep my habits positive. Habits become my values. Keep my values positive. Values become my destiny.” – Mahatma Gandhi
A positive attitude is contagious, and when you spread it in the office, you’re sure to see increased success and overall happiness. Multiple studies have shown that when colleagues have a positive mindset, they experience less stress, are more productive, and get along more smoothly. Add more positivity to your workplace and allow both you and your colleagues to reap the positive benefits!
4. Take Sunday to relax and rejuvenate
“Do not waste a single Sunday. If you don’t waste Sundays, you will be less likely to waste Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.” –Matthew Kelly
It’s tough to start a week off right if you don’t put an end to the last one. Many professions require work during the weekend, but when you have a chance to take that weekend break, do it in a way that doesn’t involve work in any way – this is one thing that successful people do on the weekends.
Spend time with the family, go out into nature, practice yoga, meditate, or even enjoy a favorite meal. The week ahead will see you as a more energized person with less burnout and more turnout!
