Things To Tell Yourself Everyday

Goooood morning lovers and welcome to your Tuesday morning fix of motivation.

Today seems like a good day to really feel them good vibes and to spread it ’round. The best way to kick it all off is to tell yourself this morning that you’re in the best mood.

Stop and have a good chat with a work mate
Ahhh dat human interaction doeeee. Step away from your computer for a second and strike up a good old fashioned conversation with someone in the office. It’s as simple as asking about how someone’s weekend was. Have a laugh and wear a smile!

STRETCH!
It’s such a good feeling, right? Stretching all your muscles after sitting on an uncomfortable computer chair for hours. Who cares if you look foolish, stretching is super good for you and you might even start a chain reaction of stretch breaks around the office.

Have a cup of tea or coffee at your desk with you
It’s the little things, ‘ya know. Always feel cozy at your office desk by simply having a cup of your favorite tea or coffee by your side. Sip it occasionally whenever you’re in need of a mini break.

Low key jam out to some music
‘Me’ time at work? It exists! Bring out the earphones and turn on some bangers. A perfect way to disregard all annoying characters in your office, or to cure those wretched mind blanks that stop you from getting shit done!

Hand out a compliment
Anyone can do this one. Wherever you are, you should go out of your way at least once a day to compliment someone. Whether that be your boss, the newbie at reception or even that lovely person who served you when you bought lunch. You could make their day, as well as yours. You’ll be smiling all day knowing that you’ve spread good vibez.

Check this out. We’ve got enough motivation to get you through anything!
