Showing up to work dwelling on something a coworker said that offended you a few days ago is not productive for you.
If you’re a negative self-talker, fighting that is a daily process. You can’t pump yourself up one day and think it’s ended the negativity forever.
Work to make sure your happiness does not lie in another.
People will always disappoint you – it’s sad, but true. It won’t always be of their doing. We can’t control whether a friend moves away, a significant other loses interest, or a family member dies.
If another person is the key to your smile, your world will fall apart when they fail, and it’s up to you to pick yourself back up.
This negative stigma around selfishness needs to be fought. Yes, we should be there for and help one another to the best of our abilities, but not to the detriment of our own health.
Notice where your happiness lies today.
The hardest part about being a creative person to me is needing an outlet. I get bored easily, I constantly need to listen to music, read, watch tv, sing, play an instrument…anything where I can watch/tell a story and experience emotion.
Kind of hard to do sitting in an office all day, right?
That’s where color coding my email comes in. Or making a game out of my tasks with prioritizing and setting new deadlines to race against the clock.
Challenge your mind to have some fun this week 😊
It doesn’t have to be perfect, it just has to start.
Don’t let the fear of not doing something well stop you from trying it.
After all, practice makes perfect, and where is the journey if we begin everything perfectly?
Quiet the perfectionist in you today and take that risk you’ve been avoiding.
Think about your plans before saying “yes” – you can get burnt out running errands or trying to see all of your friends in one night – slow it down and enjoy.
