One of the many signs that tell when a person is demotivated or has lost passion with his work is how he acts and behaves himself toward Monday. People come to work tired and unenthusiastic because they feel unappreciated. They don’t like the work environment they’re in because their potential is limited. It could also be that their needs aren’t well taken cared of by the company. A lot of us don’t look forward to Monday for numerous reasons but mostly because of internal struggles that string from fear. Unless you’re the one in their shoes, you can’t blame them. If you dread the sound of Monday, you’re probably like almost everybody in this world. Monday blues refer to the negative emotions, mostly depressing feelings, that are tied with a Monday.
June 1st — the beginning of the rainy season in the Philippines. During this season, storms and monsoons hover over different parts of the country. Strong winds and heavy rain keep you up at night and wake you up early in the morning. Ironically, the cold weather makes you not get out of bed. It can get very tiring to start the day active and ready. You need to muster any willpower left to throw away the blankets and open the blinds inside your room.
The biggest mistake people make is to waste time on insignificant things that don’t do them good. Time is the most precious asset in life. It’s something we can never take back, rewind, or freeze. It’s a treasure that holds the most value, yet ironically, we don’t exactly know how to use it right. Every day for the rest of our lives, we’re forced to face this time management conundrum as if we’re this perfect individual who knows what to say or act all the time.
Many of us insist that a lot of us don’t attain our goals because of poor goal-setting, attitude, and habit. While that may be true, it’s not simply the planning stage that determines the likelihood of getting the desired result. Other critical stages such as transitioning and executing objectives are pivotal to guarantee success. Goal-setting is a significant foundation to fulfilling your life’s aspirations. If you do not narrow down your goals and specify them according to four important areas in your life (wealth, relationships, health, self-fulfillment, or happiness), then you wouldn’t be able to measure how long it takes to achieve your dream and the necessary actions it takes to get there.
We need to take breaks because we are not meant to be in constant work mode for the rest of our lives. Resting shouldn’t be something you need to be guilty of. When you rest, you’re paying attention to your physical and mental health which is necessary for work. During times of relaxation, your mind and body are restoring energy and relieving the negative toxins that have been accumulated from hours of work.
Resting isn’t some kind of excuse to lay off workers and slack off, it’s a necessary process to mitigate the effects of stress and anxiety. If you have clearer, healthier physical and mental health, you’re not only more focused on work but are also quicker to resolve problems should they come. You’re on your feet ready to seize the day, not cranky and exhausted from having fewer hours of sleep.
