The beginning of 2017 was likely a breeze for you. Working out, killing it at work, and super pumped about your resolutions. How’s November looking?! If you’ve lost that motivation, you are not alone. In fact, statistics show that over 50% of people forget their resolutions after the first month. I’m not saying that’s an excuse, but life happens. One place where you really don’t want to lose that motivation is at work. I’m sharing 7 ways to help you stay motivated at work. Your work is your livelihood, or at least funds your livelihood, so you don’t want to slack there!
7 Ways to Keep the Motivation Alive at Work
1. Start Your Day Right
Have you ever noticed the difference in how your day goes when you start it off with a great cup of coffee and taking your time to get ready, as opposed to waking up late and rushing to work? Night and day right? When you start your day in the right frame of mind, you’re already in a place to receive positivity. On the other hand, when your day starts off negative, everything after will likely be seen in a negative light.
If rushing is your normal routine, set your alarm 30 minutes to an hour earlier. Maybe you need to start waking up earlier so you don’t have to rush. It may not be the best the first few days, but once your body gets used to it, you will be fine. If waking up early isn’t an issue, then do some things to open yourself up to receiving positivity! Here are a few ways you can improve your morning routine:
Start your day with a workout
Play upbeat music or inspirational podcasts (like Classy Career Girl’s) while you’re getting ready
Brew your own coffee and spend 10 minutes enjoying the cup
Journal about the things you are grateful for
