Throughout the week, you more than likely spend a good amount of time at your job. Whether you work in an office or work in retail or corporation, you tend to spend many days stuck there. For most of us, it is physically and emotionally draining to work for hours on end at our job. Client after client, customer after customer, a repeat process of events that consistently take place can really put a damper on your mood. Sure, maybe every once in a while things change up at work and that’s always fun and interesting, but for those other days, motivation can become scarce. I have compiled a few small tips to help you get through the work day.
Change it up
Everyday you go through a routine of things you do at your job. Wake up, get ready, go to work, come home and repeat. It’s an endless cycle and it has been proven that boring repeat schedules can affect your motivation and productivity. Maybe wake up earlier and try a new coffee shop you’ve had your eyes on. You could also try your hand at cooking and bring some in for your coworkers to try. Anything that can help you keep the work day fun and interesting will help you in the end, overall.
Stop and breathe!
A long rush of people call you or show up to your store. Craziness ensues and soon enough you’re running around making sure everything is running smooth. This type of behavior is a strong cause of stress among many employees. You have to make sure you are staying on top and productive, but must remember you can only do so much. Keep a good middle ground and remain calm in situations of intense work loads.
My advice is to follow a breathing method which has helped me for the past two years.
- Breathe in for 8 Seconds
- Hold for 6 Seconds
- Breathes out for 4 seconds
This breathing method instantly takes a large portion of stress off your shoulders and lets you move on with your duties. Feel free to use this multiple times throughout the day, whatever you can do to help yourself.
Not every day at the job is going to be fun and enjoyable. You will have your ups and you’ll have your downs. That’s okay and everyone goes through these, you aren’t alone. Using the two methods I mentioned, you can turn a regular work week into a more interesting and stress free work week. Maybe change it up on Mondays and Wednesdays, or which days seem to drag on the most for you, personally. It all comes down to trying your best to choose your mood, your best work effort and personal wellness.
Stress won’t instantly be removed from just breathing exercises. There are many other ways you can bring down your stress levels in addition. The best way to combine relieving stress and changing it up in the office is to get a professional mobile chair massage from Massage Kneads into your office today. Chair massage can offers stress-relief in fifteen minutes. How is that for a easy change along with great time management? Why “knot” give it a try and change it up a little!
