New week, fresh start. We're those strange people who love Mondays and get excited about a full to-do list. Here are some ways we take a Manic Monday and turn it into the most productive day of the week:
The right playlist can completely turn your mood around. Play something new and exciting, or throw it back to some 80’s pop. Our favorite tip: Head to a friends profile and pick one of their playlists to brighten your day.
2) Try something new.
Treat yourself to that crazy new Starbucks beverage or the new lunch spot across the street. Straying away from your “norm” is the best way to get out of your mundane Monday life. It can be as simple as sitting in a new spot at the office or checking out all of the memes you missed over the weekend before diving into your emails.
3) Take a break.
Believe it or not, breaks are the key to having a productive work day. Break out of your busy brain every now and then by taking a quick walk around the block, catching up with a buddy, or simply finding time to eat without any technology around you.
4) Get creative.
We all love our routines. Mix it up a little. Get the project you’ve been putting off done first thing. Find a different way of accomplishing your daily goals. If you can’t think of anything, the easiest thing to do is ask a friend what they’re routine is and swap! It gets your creative juices flowing and your brain will be functioning better than ever.
