What do you do to get through a tough work week? Even if we love our jobs, there will be days when we just don’t want to be there. So what do you do to make it through the day?
- Use Proper Self Dialogue
The trick is to push through your workday and remind yourself what you love about your job. Use self dialogue can such as, “This is a good position,” “I enjoy my coworkers,” and “I like my job.” Everyone reaches lulls in their day, we get tired and don’t want to do our work, but we have to do it anyway.
- Treat Yourself
We can also think about the fun things we can do once we get off work. Whether that’s getting an ice cream, getting our nails done, watching a movie, or having dinner with a friend. Keeping that in mind can make it easier for you to get through the day.
- Think About The Money
Thinking about the fact that we get paid for our work can also help to give us motivation to do our jobs. Ask yourself, “What can we do with the money? Can we save it for travel? Can we use it to provide for our family?” Whatever it is, focus on it and allow it to propel you forward. Money can’t buy you happiness but it can contribute to fun experiences.
- Focus On The Good
Focus on the good things about your job so you’re not dragging yourself and other people around you down. Maybe you don’t particularly enjoy your job, but you look forward to the fact that you get to go to lunch with your hilarious coworkers. Maybe your drive home is particularly beautiful and you get to listen to your favorite music as you de-stress from the day. Better yet, maybe you chose this lackluster job because your commute time is minimal, and that gives you joy. Focus on what makes you happy to lift your spirits.
