Wednesday Check-In: You May Need a Midweek Makeover


We've hit the midweek mark — and while that may not be cause for celebration for everyone, it's certainly reason enough to stop and evaluate your weekly progress. Are you on task to complete assignments in time for the weekend or have you spent all of your time prepping your Halloween costume and readying your apartment for a slew of trick-or-treaters? If this is the case, you may be in need of a midweek makeover?

Today, take a few minutes to check in with yourself — finances, office assignments, personal errands, and any obligations. If you're the type to not be able to find the time to tie up loose ends over the weekend, get going now.

Take a moment to look over expenses, and put any saving reminders and good-spending practices into place. As far as errands go, make sure you're making time for your personal tasks as well as office work, and remember to work smart — focusing your energy and time on the tasks you find most challenging first to avoid being burned out later.

To continue your midweek makeover, read on.

Since November is often a busy time with the holiday and family, try to get ahead now — get your November calendar out and mark important dates and deadlines. This way, while you're out enjoying the Halloween festivities, you can rest easy, knowing you've already planned ahead at home.

If all else fails, take the time midweek to give your attitude a makeover. If you're finding that you're stressed out by the impending holiday and your workload at the office, do just one thing for yourself — actively tune into what's going on, and disregard the tendency to tune it all out. Prioritize what must be done, and set an ultimate goal to remain positive throughout the week.
