There is no magical time machine that will make the work day go by faster. However, there are easy tweaks to make for a more productive and fulfilling time at the workplace. From taking a break to practicing self-care, here are five ways to make your workday fly!
1. So Audible
Listening to something while working goes back centuries. Nowadays, instead of turning up the radio or singing songs, podcasts and playlists are king. Curate a selection of songs or leave it up to algorithms on Pandora or Spotify radio. There is a podcast for any interest or industry- it can be overwhelming to know where to start. Click here for a list of top podcasts to start listening to at work.
2. Take a Break
Instead of aimlessly scrolling through social media apps, take a better break. We are not meant to work non-stop at our desks for eight hours straight. Time away from our computers is critical to not only being productive, but also for helping the work day fly by. Prioritize your mental wellness at work and make sure you schedule breaks in - even list them on your calendar as meetings to minimize disturbances!
3. Luxurious Lunch
A luxurious lunch does not have to be an hour-long meal at a local steakhouse. Simply getting away from your desk and taking time to do something different can help break up your day. Lunch comes in the middle of the day, making it the best part of your day to maximize your time.
4. Practice Self-Care
Feel like the day is never-ending? Take some time to re-center yourself for the rest of the day. Often times the work day can feel like a drag if we are distracted and unable to focus. Spending some moments practicing self-care can help you feel relaxed and ready to take on the rest of the day. Here are seven easy tips for implementing self-care at work.
5. Community Bonding
When your colleagues are strangers, it is easy to feel isolated and alone at work. Whether you work solo or in a large team, getting to know the people around you is essential. Having a community at work provides valuable connections and touch points throughout the workday. Grabbing coffee in the lounge is way more fun when you run into a friend!
