MINDSET: Train your brain to win
The Sunday Scaries
Finding joy in everyday life is crucial for long-term happiness. There are many ways to do this, check out our Adventure & Lifestyle editorials, but wasting part or most of our day worrying about work doesn’t help. Your days off are meant to recharge and re-energize your mind and body. It’s essential for a healthy mind to disconnect from work and focus on the things you enjoy every day. Worrying about the upcoming week can be damaging to your mental health.
If you find yourself in this rut, identify what’s worrying you so much. If you feel like you have too much to do, this could be a sign of disorganization. Try assigning your tasks to a specific day of the week. This way, you know when each item will get done. If you’re dreading work because of a boss or a colleague, it will bother you until you address and solve the issue. Perhaps you can speak to that individual about what’s bothering you and agree to work towards a mutually beneficial conclusion.
The biggest reason for the Sunday Scaries is often because of job dissatisfaction. Sometimes we can’t get no satisfaction. Millions of Americans report that they don’t like where they work and dread going in most days. If this sounds like you, it’s probably time for a change. It may be that you’re comfortable, co-workers have become friends, or you make a decent salary. It’s hard to change the familiar, but you should be working somewhere that makes you feel accomplished, satisfied, and fulfilled. You owe it to yourself to work somewhere that you enjoy or, at the very least, don’t dread going back to each week. If this isn’t an option now, at a minimum, you can begin to plan for a change.

When You Screw Up
What separates an Achiever from the average is what happens next, and what you take with you moving forward. After you mess up, own it. This alone can be difficult, but accepting that something went wrong is crucial for determining the next step. Get over it fast and focus on how to fix it or improve the next time around. Once the problem is fixed, examine why it happened in the first place. Then, think about what you learned from the process and how you prevent it from happening again. If you learned a valuable lesson, or how better to handle an error, you’ve successfully turned a mistake into an opportunity to grow.
Another benefit of this process appears when you find yourself in comparable circumstances in the future. Do you approach similar situations differently? What do you do automatically now as a result of your past mistake? If you end up becoming a better employee, co-worker, friend, spouse, or person in general, then that mistake may have been a blessing in disguise.

Don’t fret though, most kids grow out of it.
