How to Avoid A Mid-Year Slump

How do you feel about work? Excited to see what the next day holds or dreading the office every Monday morning? 

It’s pretty common to start feeling uninspired and fatigued around the mid-year mark. 

You’ve gone through the first half of the year in top shape, but overtime you’ve stopped prioritising your needs, or perhaps, you’re starting to lose interest in your day to day tasks. 

Thankfully, there are tactics you can use to avoid a mid-year slump. Read on as we share how. 

  1. Set new goals

Remember those goals you set for yourself at the start of the year? Now is the time to reassess where you’re at and set fresh goals for the remainder of the year. 

This is especially useful if you’re nearing on reaching your goals or if your business focus has changed across the first half of the year. 

Just remember, it’s 100% ok to edit your goals – after all, what’s the point in striving towards something you no longer need or aspire to become? 

  1. Take a mini break to recharge

If you’re burning the candle at both ends, now is the time to step back and give yourself a chance to recharge. We recommend taking a mini break to mentally recharge yourself for the second half of the year. 

If this isn’t possible consider unplugging from all social media and electronic notifications for a solid 48 hours. Use this time to focus on yourself and any form of self-care that you enjoy. You’ll be thanking us when you feel rejuvenated and ready to conquer. 

  1. Get organised! 

This should be a no-brainer, however, it’s not as simple for everyone! Get organised for the second half of the year by taking some time to declutter your desk or office, along with clearing your inbox and filing any necessary paperwork. 

The less clutter you have around you the easier it will be to concentrate on the task at hand. 

It’s also a good time to create a fresh system for filing your financial records for taxation purposes.
