Have a sound sleep and be a morning person:
Sleep deprivation makes daily life and concentration in work worse. So take a sound sleep. Don’t take too much tension and stress about tomorrow. Feel relaxed before sleeping. Reading a book may help you feel calm. Try to sleep early to start the next day early.It is a wise saying that early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. Successful people wake up early so that they get a lot of more time to complete their tasks.
Spend some time in meditation or prayer:
It is a Buddha’s saying that “It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles”. Meditation helps in keeping the mind calm, focused and positive. You feel positive vibes when you engage yourself in such activities and what is better than starting a day with positive energy and calm, focused mind.
Stay self-motivated and active:
Always remember that real source of motivation is inside you. Babe Ruth once said,”It is hard to beat a person who never gives up.” It is you that can create a change in your life. Helen Keller once said that “Nothing can be done without hope and confidence”. Stay active and avail any chance you get to achieve your goal.
Make a to-do list and check it:
Many people often forget what tasks they have to perform in the specific working day, specifically Monday as it is considered the hardest day of the week. It is a good practice to make a to-do list. You can make a list whenever you feel feasible. Making a list and the performing the listed tasks helps in reducing the stress level and makes a person feel more relaxed and confident about his goals.
Always look at the bright side of a matter. Likewise, always think that Monday is a good way to start and achieve your goals. Never give up. Bruce Lee said,” If you spend too much time thinking about a thing you’ll never get it done.” Everyone has a hard past but if you feel down yesterday, stand up today. So chin up and start your day happily and one day when you will look back to your struggling days, you would be so proud of you for never giving up.
