There will always be stages in your life where committing to your regular daily routine feels like a chore. You find it impossible to do things at the time you set simply because you don’t feel like it. You don’t have the motivation nor the willpower to get out of your comfort zone and conquer the day. Just like any other human being, this is totally a normal feeling. But remember that the longer you’re in that anxious or undisciplined state of mind, the harder it is for you to get back on track. When you feel like you’re going to the deep end, you need to throw the rope and pull yourself together. Carefully laid-out strategies will help you form habits and stick with them until they turn into your instincts.
Thinking you would have your life figured out when you achieve certain things is an illusion. No achievement can save you from your problems. No success can guarantee happiness for all your life.

When we do something regularly, we build stronger morale within ourselves because we’d want to do better and quicker at our work. Not only do we cultivate momentum but also pure optimistic energy that contributes greatly to the speed and direction towards our ambitions.
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.
