How many of us feel like this??

But what we REALLY want is to feel like this??

But how do we get there??

As an entrepreneur, photographer, and stay-at-home mama… I can appreciate the value of productivity, drive and a positive attitude.  {Emphasis on the positive attitude!!}  But some mornings?  I’m just not feelin’ it!

Days like that I find that these few tips tend to help! {A lot of them can be found on http://www.brighthub.com/office/entrepreneurs/articles/64163.aspx}

  • Plan Your Day – Planning your day the night before with to-do lists is a great idea. People tend to follow lists better than go at it with no direction. Never make that to-do list overwhelming. If you do, you’ll never complete the entire list. If an item or two aren’t accomplished?  Simply add them to tomorrows list! http://www.brighthub.com/office/entrepreneurs/articles/64163.aspx
  • Take a Shower – Don’t you wish we all had those machines like the cartoon family the Jetsons? Boy that machine did it all and they just glided through it to obtain perfect hair and they were all dressed to go. Since that machine hasn’t been invented yet, take a shower and use a moderate water temperature. Too much hot water will only result in lower energy. http://www.brighthub.com/office/entrepreneurs/articles/64163.aspx
  • Get Moving – Take a walk or simply move around to get the blood flowing. It’s amazing what a bit of fresh air can do for your body, mind and soul.  So get up and get outside.  {Or just walk around the office a bit if heading outdoors for a bit isn’t an option!}
  • Learn a New Word – It’s always good to keep a handy new word calendar at your workspace and do take the time to understand it and use it in a sentence. If you can, use it during the day in reports, emails, or conversation with co-workers. It’ll help keep that beautiful brain sharp! http://www.brighthub.com/office/entrepreneurs/articles/64163.aspx
  • Call in Reinforcements – You have a team of friends and cheerleaders.  On occasion you may want to call on them for their ability to pump… you up!  {Hah!  Are you old enough to get that??}
