Feeling tired, uninspired, or unproductive at work? Here at Mancell, we work hard, but some days are harder than others. When that happens, we look to each other for tips and tricks on how to stay motivated and make the day productive. We asked around the office for tips to make the most of your day.
1) Start your day with something positive.
Waking up early can be a challenge for many people. So instead of rolling in bed feeling sorry for yourself, make plans to do something you enjoy first thing in the morning! Whether it is making pancakes, going for a run or dropping by your favourite coffee shop, make it a point to do something you love first thing in the morning to kick-start your day with a positive attitude.
2) Take a break.
It is easy to get carried away with work when there are multiple deadlines just around the corner. Spending hours at a time on a job or task can make you feel tired, unfocused and overwhelmed by the amount of work sitting on your desk. Take a walk around the office, grab a snack from the kitchen, talk to a fellow colleague or even stare at the ceiling. Taking regular breaks to clear your mind, strategize and regain your energy can help you feel more productive and efficient throughout the day.
3) Set goals and write them down.
By planning your time and writing down your goals, you will have a clear sense of direction. Goals can be small/big, daily/weekly, and even personal/work related. Goals keep us feeling motivated and writing them down helps us to prioritise and make decisions
