Sometimes a long weekend can feel like a mixed blessing. You need the extra day to feel rested and relaxed, but now you feel like you’re a day behind.
If you’re feeling out of sorts, take 300 Seconds to perform these tasks:
- Repeat after me. “It’s Tuesday.” Now you hopefully will not feel disoriented the rest of the day.
- Remove any signs, answering machine messages, auto-replies, etc., that might still say you are closed for the holiday. (Do you have your list?)
- Make a list of what you want to accomplish today. Now divide that list into what you want to accomplish vs. what you need to accomplish. Focus first on the need to accomplish list.
- Tackle your list with the renewed energy gained from the long weekend. And if necessary, repeat, “It’s Tuesday.”
