Here at Wurf, we want to give you some top notch ideas to fuel your thoughts for 2018 to help you be your better self! Here are a just three ways to improve your office life for the better, who knows--it might make you a more productive employee.
1. Do Something for Yourself EVERYDAY
When you are at work, you are either doing something for your job, for your employees, or for your superior--but generally they’re not for you. By taking time for yourself everyday and doing something that you enjoy, it gives you an opportunity to reground yourself. Whether you enjoy reading a good book, reading the news, doing yoga, exercising, meditating, writing in a journal, or going for a peaceful walk--just make sure whatever you are doing for yourself, you are actually doing for yourself because it will make a significant difference in your life. Making you happier and more productive at the same time!
2. Learn Something New Everyday
So much of the time, we get caught up in the same routine, going to work, coming home, going to bed, and doing the same thing over again the next day. Add a little something different to shake things up, possibly learn about the benefits of standing at work and try it out.
