We all have those days when everything around us seems to be going haywire and we even lack the motivation to carry out our mundane tasks. But you can still be productive at work on such days with these seemingly simple yet workable tips.
Don’t worry about what you can’t control.
You need to know that you are not in control of everything that happens to you or around you, but you can control how to react to the situation. Giving emotional and mental energy to things outside your control is a waste of time. Worrying doesn’t change your situation and so you are better off using that energy to find a way forward. The reality is that things will not always work out the way you envisioned, but when it happens you need to handle the unexpected and move on.
Intentionally surround yourself with positive information.
Begin to fill your mind with uplifting information from the time you wake up to the time you go to bed. You could listen to music that uplifts your soul, read motivational books, or watch an inspiring video just to take your mind off the negative thoughts and remind yourself that you too can be successful despite the hurdles you are currently facing. In addition, spend time with optimistic people and speak positive affirmations to yourself to shut down whatever negative thoughts may be going through your mind.
Recall past wins no matter how small.
There is no better time than this to recall all your previous accomplishments and note them down. Remind yourself of the hurdles you faced prior to these accomplishments and how you pulled through. This will help keep you motivated. Celebrate every little achievement you make in your present situation and use it as a reminder of why you need to keep going. After all, no situation is permanent; this storm, too, shall pass.
