Case of the Monday's? There's An App For That

December 04, 2016

When your team consists of 20 people or less, there’s nothing more important than staying motivated.

This should be easy right? You’ve made it. Your workspace is beautiful and open, you’ve set measurable goals for the coming week, and now all you have to do is get down to business.

Only it’s Monday morning. By 10am, you’ve managed to send a few emails, scroll through your various newsfeeds, respond to a few Slack messages…that list of big rocks has remained untouched. You my friend, have a case of the Mondays.

So what to do? Tweet an Office Space GIF to share your plight with the world? Wish Happy Birthday to that list of Facebook friends because being nice is the next best thing to being productive?

Thankfully, we have a solution. Remember pre-gaming for parties in college? Grab that coffee and your headphones. It’s time to pregame for work.

In a recent study commissioned by Spotify, we meet renowned music scientist Dr.Anneli Haake whose in depth research proves that one way  “music helped to engage employees while working was through a sense of inspiration. Music could be thought encouraging and motivating. Some explained that they felt more inspired to carry out certain tasks”

So what are you waiting for? Put on your favorite playlist or check out Spotify’s amazing FOCUS collection and get in the zone. Those big rocks aren’t going to move themselves.
