It’s so hard to find the motivation to start a new week with a pep in our step. Especially after a great weekend, a three-day weekend or a holiday break. Getting back in the grind and to our normal routine is hard. And when you get up early to head back to work – that really sucks.
And it’s not just those folks who work in an office. Even those of us who work from home sometimes dread making the walk from the bedroom to the home-office. The motivation is lost and the energy is at an all-time low and the only thing on the mind is hitting the snooze button for five more minutes. Or we come up with reasons not to go in to the office at all.
I will even have to admit that as I write this post, I’m struggling to get my motivation going to start the new week ahead.
6 Ways To Beat The Back To Work Blues
My normal morning routine includes making a pit stop to McDonald’s for a large coke. But now that I’m adopting a healthier way of living (man I miss my large coke), I need to skip the soda and grab something else to kickstart my morning.
I found this cool infographic that has six ways to beat the back to work blues. Whether you’re working in an office or you work at home these tips can work for everyone.

Great tips, right? Now, I’m not so sure about those rapid push-ups though. That means I’d have to push my body weight and…well, that’s a whole other issue there but it’s worth a try, right?
And there’s that “work-life balance” again so it’s obvious it’s an important part. What are you doing to ensure you have a positive work-life balance?
Now It’s Your Turn
I sure hope this infographic gave you some ideas to beat the back to work blues. I don’t know about you but after reading this I’m ready to grab some nuts and get my day going! Okay, dirty mind…I’m talking about almonds and walnuts!
