At times there are situations in our professional lives, when we undergo immense pressure. And this in turn takes a toll on our productivity and performance. And not only this, it also causes negative impact on our physical as well as mental health. Hence dealing with these confidently is of utmost importance. This will not happen in a day or two, rather it will take time, and needs regular practice. We should make every efforts to remain happy and we absolutely deserve it.
It is an accepted fact that we do not have control over the work that comes in, but it nowhere means we are not competent. Following certain regular practices will help curb negativity and retain a happy environment in office.
Be Creative with your Work station: A person spends at least 8–9 hour a day in office, which is more than what you spend in your home. Make your space your own, decorate your workstation as much as your company allows you, and make yourself as comfortable and relaxed as you can be in your office.
See what’s positive around you: Identify the thing what you like at your office. It might even be something as simple hanging out with your coworkers or enjoying some view from your workstation. If you will feel good from inside then you can be positive in office. Be warm to other and interact as much as possible.
Give Feedback to your company: Try to share your opinion/feedback if you genuinely feel about something that needs to be amended/addressed or something which you feel is very good in your organization. Being able to have a voice helps shape the future of company will give you a sense of confidence.
Prioritize and organize: This is the key idea. Everyday before starting your day at office, make a to-do list. Then prioritize the tasks basis deadlines, and effort required. When you set unrealistic goals for yourself, you’re setting yourself up to fall short
Look for humor in the situation: When used appropriately, humor can be a great way to relieve stress in office. When you or those around you start taking things too seriously, find a way to lighten the mood by sharing a joke or funny story.
