Labor Day honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country.
Ultimately, we would all choose to be happy & healthy at the work place all year round since many of us spend a great part of our lives working – laboring! So, how do we effectively walk the line between being professionally productive and personally happy? Here’s a few quick tips that may just help you out.
On the way to your workplace, get yourself motivated to face the day. Think of how the work you have allows you to have your life outside of it, such as a great social life. A positive attitude will make the day more pleasant and productive.
Plan your time. In your to-do list include long term projects as well as the more imminent things that need doing. Prioritize your to-do list – do the most important things first. When performing any task, ask yourself – is this the best use of my time? Schedule in enough time for your studies etc.
Concentrate on the task at hand. Do not let yourself be distracted by worrying about all the other things to be done or losing energy over the undesirable situation you find yourself in. Stay in the moment.
Contribute towards creating a pleasant work environment. Do not gossip in the office as it just creates negativity all around. Do not listen to any gossip either…it will drag you down. What you continuously think and talk about becomes your reality, so, even if things aren’t that great in your life, focus on what is great about your job and with your personal relationships and you just may find yourself in a much better mood which will spread to others around you too!
