But even if your job is great, it can be hard to switch gears when the weekend comes to a close. Here are a few ways you can start your work week off right and keep it on the path to awesomeness.Get in a routine: If you don’t follow a work routine, Monday morning is the perfect time to start one. When your wake-up, breakfast, and commute are all on a schedule, you’ll have a productive and energetic start to your day. Your snooze button might be extra attractive after a busy weekend, but being rushed will only lead to being unprepared. Starting your morning off on the wrong foot is the perfect way to ruin your day.Get your blood flowing: We’ve talked before about the benefits of exercise, so hit the gym in the morning if you can. A good workout can improve brain function and give you more energy, not to mention improve the quality of your sleep. Starting your week by providing your body these benefits can catapult you down a road to personal and professional success. Don’t deny yourself this opportunity.Get in early: As easy as it sounds, an extra half hour on Monday morning is a great way for you to get your bearings and asses your to-do list before your life is invaded by emails and requests from co-workers or customers. Think of it as a race. If a race starts at 8 am, you’re not showing up at 7:58, slapping a number on your chest, and taking off for the finish line. You’d be much better off if you leave yourself enough time to stretch and mentally focus. Being early to work allows you to prepare for the week ahead so you’re not playing catch-up all day.
Submitted to Sumner Newscow â€” The Sumner County Court Appointed Special Advocates, aka as CASA, are looking for volunteers to help change a child’s life.Nobody longs for a safe and loving family more than a child in foster care. As a CASA volunteer, you are empowered by the courts to help make this dream a reality.You will be the one consistent adult in these childrenâ€™s lives, vigilantly fighting for and protecting their fundamental right to be treated with the dignity and respect every child deserves. You will not only bring positive change to the lives of these vulnerable children, but also their children and generations to come. And in doing so, you will enrich your life as well.What Do CASA Volunteers Do?CASA volunteers listen first. Then they act.Â Volunteers get to know the child by talking with everyone in that child’s life: parents and relatives, foster parents, teachers, medical professionals, attorneys, social workers and others.They use the information they gather to inform judges and others of what the child needs and what will be the best permanent home for them.Who Can Be a Volunteer?You do not have to be a lawyer or social worker to be a volunteer. We welcome people from all walks of life. We are simply looking for people who care about children.Â As a volunteer, you will be thoroughly trained and well supported by professional staff to help you through each case.To be a CASA volunteer you must pass a background check, participate in training and commit to advocate for your child/children assigned to you.Please contact Sumner County CASA at 620-326-8919 for additional information.Â Â Training classes are offered twice a year, if you are not able to attend a training class we offer other training options.Â Please speak up for a child today!
