How to get out of that Groundhog Day loop

How to get out of that Groundhog Day loop

For most people, January seems like a never-ending month of work, emails, deadlines and weekends in. You might even say you’re stuck in a Groundhog Day loop, reliving the same day over and over again.

For those of you not familiar with the term ‘Groundhog Day’, here’s a quick introduction:

“According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then the spring season will arrive early, some time before the vernal equinox; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its den, and winter weather will persist for six more weeks.”

Groundhog Day arrives on February 2nd, and if you’re feeling like you’re stuck in a rut and need to shake things up and make some changes then you’ve come to the right place – we’re sharing some ideas on how to make the most of everyday and approach the working day with a positive outlook!


Create Something New

If you’re the type of person who is willing to learn then now is the perfect time to create something new! Whether you’re creating a new type of product, offering a new service or starting a new project, doing something new and different will not only keep you motivated and focused but will show you’re innovative and allow your business to stay ahead of the game.

If you don’t have the time to create something new, why not opt to purchase a new creative tool that will help your business grow. Learning a new skill will be a positive step in the right direction and make you aware of where your current skills lie in the present moment.


Follow up on goals

If you started 2020 with a goal list then now is a great time to look back and check where you are with them – have you managed to stay on track? Do you need to make some adjustments? Have you managed to tick any off your list? During this time of year it can be difficult to stay positive, but your goals are proof that you have a plan and are working towards a goal – so revisiting these will help you bring back some positivity and put you back on track.

If you’re thinking of setting goals for the year ahead then it’s never to late to start – check out our top tips for goal setting here.

It can be difficult to stay positive when you feel like you’re constantly working – so why not treat yourself to a weekend break! Allowing yourself some time to rest, recharge and recover will make you more productive and happier when you get back to work – and you’ll be able to make the time to work on that new project or follow up on those 2020 goals!

The first few months of the year is often a time where money is quite tight for people following the Festive season – so why not try and save some money by visiting a friend in another city, finding a last-minute city break deal online or be a tourist in your own home and have a staycation.
