I have to admit that I once was that person that lived for the weekend. I felt stuck in a job that I hated and when Friday came around its like I became a new woman. This feeling slowly went away as Sunday crept in as I knew the doom and gloom awaiting me at work on Monday. It can be really hard to get out of this mind-set, believe me I know. But once you do its the best feeling in the world.
Today I’ll be sharing some tips and tricks on how you can stop living for weekends and start living for everyday instead!
FIND A BETTER PERSPECTIVE
If you tell yourself that your week is going to be rubbish then it probably will be. Our minds are so powerful and can have such an impact on our days, weeks and months. It can be hard finding a better perspective, especially when you feel hopeless and like there’s no way out. What I would say is surround yourself with good people who can help you find that new perspective. So many times I’ve been in a bad place and dreading the working week, but my friends and family have been there to lift me up and help me to feel better.
DO THE HARDEST THINGS FIRST
Do the hard thing first and get it out of the way. That way the rest of the week is free and you have a chance to focus on the good for the rest of the week. This cant always be done as your deadline could be at the end of the week, but if you have control over when you get things done, then do it. I do this a lot of the time, because then it saves me stressing about it all week until the day. It allows me to enjoy the time I have Monday-Friday.
PLAN SOMETHING FUN MID-WEEK
I love doing this! It doesn’t even need to be something crazy, it could just be a trip to see your friend or a walk around a park. Just having a goal and something to focus on mid-week can really help to keep you going. Who says that all the fun is to be had on the weekend?
A lot of the times why we can’t wait for the weekend is because we are burnt out, and the weekend is the only chance some of us get to have a rest. If you can, try to take rests mid-week. This rest can be anything from a 30 minute bubble bath or an hour spent reading a book. It could even just be a gentle reminder to yourself to take a lunch break, because I know it can be easy to forget to take those.
Give yourself that time to re-coup and gather your thoughts again. Remember that it’s okay to do nothing sometimes. Doing this will hopefully prevent you from being so burnt out by Friday!
