We like to think that big, radical changes guide how engaged we are at work. But if you think about it, the little things matter just as much and are actually a lot more achievable. Breaking long term goals into bite sized every habits actually makes your day at work happier and more productive. Plus, it ensures your wellbeing as a bonus.
Here are a few things you can do that will make your day at work a lot better, as suggested by Office Vibe:
These activities—or rather habits—may seem too subtle to be effective. But that’s the beauty of it. Incorporating tiny positive practices, or making small positive changes in the way you work will ultimately affect your overall attitude at work. It’ll make people around you feel better, too!
We’ve seen how negativity begets negativity at work. Making an effort to be positive ultimately tricks your brain into being happy.
Just as important as mental wellbeing is your physical health. Consciously include healthier eating and lifestyle habits into your routine. Pick up a water instead of a soda. Walk around the office to take a break instead of checking social media. Make changes you can commit to. When you’re feeling fit and healthy in your body, your mind will follow.
Remember, if you are actively trying to improve the way you feel at work, nothing is going to happen overnight. Bouncing from a burnout or a bad spell at work will take time. Develop good habits and little by little, you’re going to start noticing the improvement yourself.
