MHAW: I just have fun today

Wake up and feel tired because “it’s Monday again”? Do you need small and kick-in motivation for your first day at work? My tip: Remind yourself that you are having fun on that day.

There are countless self-help articles about how to find motivation at work. Some of them are relatable; some of them do nothing to my laziness when it comes. The root cause of procrastination and de-motivation, to me, is that you don’t feel excited about the things you supposed to do. However, in the professional setting, we have to go through all of that because it’s our work and it’s our responsibility. We can’t simply say, “Nah, I won’t do that because I don’t like to”- it might sound rude sometimes.

I learned the hard way to integrate sparks of joy personally and get things done professionally, it came to the pretty simple solution. Let’s start to talk to yourself those magic words: “I just have fun today.” Affirmations are sentences aimed to affect the conscious and the subconscious mind, so that in turn, they affect our behavior, thinking patterns, habits and environment. The reason affirmations work is because they’re statements of what we believe, which encourages us to take action on those beliefs.

Next Monday and you feel like you don’t want to go to work? Let’s try with “I just have fun today.”

Hope everyone out there have the fun at work today!
