Make things happen! Seize the day! You’ve heard the pep talk before. How do you motivate yourself to get up Monday morning and be productive?

The weekend allowed you to relax and regroup, so that you may return to work refreshed. Start Mondays from a new vantage point, review your priorities for the week and then assign your highest level of concentration to the hardest tasks first.

Here are some basic tips:

  1. Spend 10 minutes organizing and prioritizing emails.
  2. Only schedule meetings after 10 a.m.
  3. Turn off social media notifications
  4. Tidy your work area
  5. Embrace your routine
