Tip 1: Get enough sleep.
I know that this sounds stupid, and obvious, but honestly, getting enough sleep really does help with your mood, your concentration, and overall well-being.
Tip 2: Plan ahead.
Make lists, write everything in your diary, and keep it open on your desk. Know where you need to be, and when. Not only does this help you with your organisation, but it means that you don't have to faff about trying to figure out what needs to be done, etc. Bonus tip: whenever you make plans, put it straight in your diary. That way, you won't forget, or double-book anything.
Tip 3: Make time to relax.
This one is especially important! You shouldn't be working right up until you go to sleep - take time to unwind before bed. Keep a bedtime routine - stop work at least an hour before you want to go to bed, and make a hot drink, put your PJs on, take off your makeup if you wear it.. Use this time to unwind and end the day properly and without stress.
Tip 4: Pay attention to deadlines.
This sounds daft, but if you have work that's due in two weeks, and work that's due in a few days, do that one first. It will mean less stress the night before it's due in. But also, don't leave work that's not due in for a while until the last minute, because otherwise, y'know, more stress.
Tip 5: Treat each day as a fresh start.
Don't dwell on yesterday. If you have a bad day, realise it, accept it, then go to sleep, and forget it. Bonus tip 2: Don't start each day with the idea that it will be a bad day.. Especially Mondays.. Mondays are good!
So these are just a few little things that you can do to help your week flow smoothly, and to help you to think more positively. But remember, if you are having a bad week, it's not the end of the world; nothing lasts forever, just like you won't be sad forever. Just keep looking forward, and know that you're doing the best you can.
Have a good week, my lovelies!!
