5 Ways to Increase Your Motivation to Work on Mondays

5 Ways to Increase Your Motivation to Work on Mondays

Regardless if you are a student, an employee or running your own business, it is a problem to keep motivations up during Mondays. Most of us look forward on seeing the weekend. Though weekends can be relaxing, it is the work we accomplish during weekdays that pay our bills and take us closer to our goals.

What we also don’t realize is the fact that Mondays can kick start a beautiful week. It can keep the entire week’s productivity up as it offers momentum for the rest of the workweek. So how do we increase our motivation to work on Mondays? Here are five things that you need to remember.

1. Sleep early on Sunday.

One of the things that can get you excited to work on a Monday is by having sufficient rest during the weekends. A long slumber is a must especially on a weekend. To give you that jolt of energy on Monday, it is a must to complete at least 9 hours of sleep on a Sunday. This makes a huge difference especially waking up. You will be well rested excited to get moving on a Monday.

2. Prepare your schedule ahead.

A lot of us have no idea what to do on a Monday. In fact, a lot of individuals simply figure out what to do for the entire week once the nine-to-five work starts on that day. One sure way to increase our motivation to work on Mondays is by planning the schedule for the entire workweek during the weekends.

How does it motivate you to work on a Monday? It simply reminds you that there’s work to be done and you already need to get up.

3. Identify reasons why you are unmotivated to work.

Have you experienced feeling unmotivated to perform at work, not only on a Monday, but also on other days of the week? If so, you might as well identify the reason why. Is it a negative work environment that stops you from being productive during Mondays? Or perhaps, you are already experiencing burnout at work?

Once you have identified the problem, try finding a solution for it. For instance, if you are already experiencing burnout from work, why not ask for a vacation? Or, you can also try a new hobby after work to keep stress to a minimum.

4. Detox from work during the weekend.

It is frustrating when you don’t get enough rest from your weekend. This is why you see people too tired to work on a Monday.

One of the reasons why you don’t recover from a stressful work week is because you don’t necessarily switch off from work. Instead, you still read emails and other things that are basically work related. Having personal time makes perfect sense especially for someone who is always busy at work. By switching off from work, you will feel more motivated to work on a Monday.

5. Find the right attire for work.

Ever wondered why corporate jobs require employees to dress formally? It has been proven that people change their attitudes depending on what they dress. This is why you notice people to talk and walk differently when they wear something formal.

One simple and effective way to increase our motivation to work on Mondays is simply by choosing the right clothes that make us feel good. On a Monday, why not choose your favorite outfit that gives you a sharp look?

Conclusion

Mondays always seem like the hardest day at work. What we don’t realize is that it is only a perception. You can always find reasons to work hard at any given time of the day. With these simple tips, hopefully, your Mondays will also be better.
