Thinking Outside the Box

If you ask the average person their favorite day, they might say Fridays. Friday being the last workday of the week for office workers, they are tired and ultimately stressed out from overload, so the thought of unwinding by sharing a drink with colleagues at a local pub, or partying, or simply going home and relaxing is a climax changer.


On the other hand, for the person who lives in total harmony they might say, “I love Mondays!”


After hitting the town over the weekend and overspending, and basically cutting out on sleep to blend in with others, and then being ushered into a party mode that encourages alcohol, pick-me-up stuff, and the like while not getting barely enough sleep or sticking to daily rituals your body likes, it stands-to-reason that getting back to the normality of going to the gym before a normal working day could be a lifesaver.


However, the Monday blues is that feeling of dread of going to work and starting your workweek. You and your employees may experience the Monday morning blues because you don't want the weekend to end, don't feel excited about the work or feel overwhelmed by workplace responsibilities. 


But it doesn’t have to be like that. By thinking outside the box, as some people tend to take in their stride, they avoid negativity and are able to turn it into positivity. Those people are really content because they realize control of their emotions is what prepares them to overcome hurdles and get them on top of life, living in peace and harmony.


A person in control without the need for instant gratification is able to harness spiritual powers while building a legacy of grandeur.


Take care!
