Although spring technically began over a month ago, it is only now truly starting to feel like the season. Flowers are blooming, the temperatures are warmer, and the promise of summer hangs in the air. Springtime is often associated with themes of renewal, growth, and nature. At work, there are many ways to mark this time of year. It can be a time to re-think your space, grow professionally, and set yourself up for success for the rest of the year. Here are four ways to celebrate spring in the workspace:
1. Honor Earth Month
April is home to Earth Month, and more specifically Earth Day this Friday, the 22nd. They are many ways to educate yourself and learn how to be more sustainable in the workplace. Consider making sustainable swaps with items in the office, implementing one of these ways to “go green,” and organizing an Earth Day celebration.
2. Spring Clean
Spring cleaning is not just for the home, it is for your workspace as well! Do not neglect the space you spend hours in each day. Check out these 10 easy ways to clean your workspace and get started on refreshing your desk (and beyond). “Cleaning” can also apply to your professional daily routine as well. Take the time to develop a new system that works for you with these tips here.
3. Refresh Your Outlook
It can be difficult to keep a positive mindset during the cold winter months. Use the changing of the seasons as a reason to reset your mentality at work. Practice self-care and work on your mental health by taking a day off and creating little healthy habits. Try a new productivity method to switch up your workday. Spring is a time of year when all we want to do is sit outside in the sun, so finding a way to increase productivity to maximize free time outside of work is important. A fresh outlook on work-life balance pairs perfectly with the season and will allow you to enjoy it to the fullest extent.
4. Gather Together
As we all come out of winter hibernation, it is natural to want to gather with others! Spring is the perfect time to do some team bonding. Check out these ideas for fun, easy ways to connect. You can also head out to a networking event, or invite a new colleague out for drinks or lunch. Spring also provides an excuse to flex your event planning muscle. Throw a spring break themed happy hour for your team with cocktails, games, and beach decor as a way to all let loose together!
