Welcome to our first Generous Apparel Blog Post. We wanted to offer some fun and insightful tips for each day of the week throughout the next year to help inspire our followers to acts of Generosity, experiences of encouragement and love, fits of ROFL, and times of recharge and refocus on what is most important in life.
Some of our posts will be quick little quotes from insightful authors and artists. Some will be a little longer to afford practical and helpful tips. And we hope all of them will be beneficial, inspiring our followers to make Generosity a constant experience.
So, without further adieu ... welcome to our first Make Monday Great Again Blog Post.
Prepare for Monday on Friday.
“Mondays can be extra stressful from work that has potentially piled up from the previous week and, for many, can be challenging to jump right back in.”
To help combat that Monday morning anxiety, be sure to leave yourself as few dreadful tasks as possible on Friday afternoon, Friedman says. “By taking care of the things you least want to handle at the end of one work week, you're making the start of the next that much better.”
If you do have any unpleasant tasks awaiting your attention Monday morning, get them done as early as possible so that you don't spend the rest of the day procrastinating or “feeling as if there's a black cloud hanging over your head,” she says. “Make that uncomfortable phone call, resolve that outstanding issue, or clean up that mess that's waiting for you. You'll feel a lot better once it's over.”
You’ll also want to make sure your calendar is up to date and synched, and you have a good view of and handle on your upcoming work week--especially Monday, says Deborah Shane, a career author, featured writer, speaker, and media and marketing consultant. “What do you need to prepare for and get organized with? Get it done Friday, or by Sunday, if possible.”
