Sind Sie mit Ihrer Arbeit unzufrieden? Überlegen Sie, eine neue Stelle zusuchen? Bevor Sie den großen Sprung wagen, überlegen Sie, ob Sie IhrenArbeitsalltag angenehmer gestalten können. Hier sind 6 Tipps für Sie.
Do you sometimes find yourself looking for greener pastures?* Are you often unhappy at work? There is a lot you can do to make things better without rushing off and looking for a new job. Here are six tips.
1 Create a nice working area
You probably spend more time in the office than you do in your bed! So make yourself at home there. Get some potted plants. They are pleasant to look at and good for the office environment. Just be careful not to have too much clutter on your desk as this is counterproductive.
2 Eat well and drink lots of water
A good diet and keeping yourself hydrated can make a big difference to your energy level and attitude. Make sure you have lots of herbal teas and fruit at the ready instead of depending on coffee and chocolate all the time.
3 Be organised
Create a realistic schedule for your workload. If you are overwhelmed by the amount of work you have to do, you will feel tired.
4 Move around
You probably spend most of the day sitting down. Get out at lunch time and go for a walk. Move about the office more. Put things you need once or twice a day in the other corner of the office so you have to get up to fetch them.
5 Don’t try to change your colleagues
As much as we would like to, there is no way we can change other people. But we can change the way we react to them. Don’t let other people’s moods affect you. Figure out a way to resolve conflicts and avoid uncomfortable situations.
6 Reward yourself
Reward yourself with something outside of your job. Go for dinner with a friend, go to the sauna, have a manicure. Treat yourself once in a while. Just as stress from home can influence your working day, positive things can make you feel better in the office.
* To look for greener pastures comes from the saying “the grass is always greener on the other side of the hill”. People use this saying as a warning to those who are chronically discontent with their job, their partner or life in general.
