Check out these top 10 tips on how to keep positive on Monday...

  1. Listen to your favorite song: Jump out of bed and turn on the music! You need to create a morning playlist of all the tunes that get you in a happy mood. If you are allowed to use headphones at work, you should great a playlist for during the day too! This will help you to work more efficiently.
  2. Be optimistic and look at the bright side of everything. If you are a grouch, nobody in the office will talk to you and you will start to feel lonely. Talk with your co-workers, share your weekend great moments and do not panic with work tasks, remain calm and positive.
