If you’ve had a particularly fun and enjoyable weekend, it can be quite a challenge to get ready for work again.
Instead of wasting away your energy and wishing that Monday won’t come, here are some of the things you can do to prepare for the week ahead. These may appear like simple things, but they can totally change your mindset and help you prepare psychologically.
One thing to keep in mind is to try avoid doing work if possible. You need to give yourself time to rest and recharge before the week starts. Don’t get started on that report that yet, but this doesn’t mean that you should slack off either. Make a commitment to spend about an hour every Sunday night to prepare for the tasks to come.
Here are easy and simple things you can do to help you prepare for the week ahead.
Why are you so anxious about returning to work anyway? An overview of the tasks that you need to achieve will give you a clearer picture of the week ahead. It does not have to be extremely detailed, but you can consider it your guiding light or master list. Maybe once you’ve organized all your tasks you will realize that they are manageable after all.
It does not have to be a book related to the work you do. In fact, it might be better if you read something light and leisurely. Reading a book will help you stay relax but it will also keep your brain engaged somewhat. Think of it as your warm-up for the week ahead. Pick a book that you genuinely find interesting. Try reading about something that you’ve been meaning to learn - maybe calligraphy or knitting or even brewing your own beer.
If you know that you will have a stressful week ahead, then you need to prepare for battle. Organizing your outfits will give you a sense that you’ve completed something related to all the work you’re anticipating. Make sure to take special meetings into account. Power dress on those days when you need to feel more confident about yourself.
Organizing your things can make you feek more confident that you are ready for the tasks of the week. Plus, preparing your bag will help you avoid mistakes like forgetting important documents during a presentation. Prepare and make sure that you have everything you’ll need for the week to avoid last-minute problems.
If you had a very busy weekend, try to at least make a commitment to give yourself quality “Me time” on Sunday night. The best way to do it is to enjoy a long, relaxing bath in the tub. It’s such an easy thing to prepare but you get to enjoy numerous health and beauty benefits.
