Now, Start Your Day…

Stay away from the co-workers that annoy you right away. Start with the stuff you hate, that way it’s done and you don’t have to worry about it. Quit your whining and just do it!


Close your eyes for a moment and believe that you’re somewhere else, you favorite place…


Do the minimum…

Sometimes, you just need to put things off until Tuesday so Monday doesn’t feel overwhelming. Instead of trying to get everything done on the first day of the work week, pace your tasks to spread them out over the entire week.
