“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”.
But how can you make your job even more enjoyable? Here are some tips to live a better office life!
Working in front of a desk for more than six hours a day can be tolling on your mind, body and spirit. People that sit down for lengthened amounts of time are much more likely to develop diabetes, heart diseases and obesity.
Use an adjustable standing desk
The best way to improve your health during office hours is to use an adjustable standing desk in order to stay happy. It will help you relieve joint pain when used correctly. Position your neck to match your natural gaze, and place the screen you are working on in line with your eyesight. The keyboard should be placed at elbow height, so as not to strain your wrists and hands.
Leave your problems at home
When you pour your emotional turmoil on the job, it will seem as if it never ends. Being happy is much more easy when your stress is left at home, without distracting you from being productive.
Take a break
Getting burned out during the day is incredibly easy. Staying cheerful, competent and energetic can be difficult if you don’t take a breather in between tasks. Just a couple of minutes off on the phone can make you so much productive! Take some time to recharge from stress, you won’t regret it!
Sitting in front of a desk, we often forget to drink during the day. Without enough water, we risk feeling cranky: once you feel the thirst, you are already dehydrated. Our energy levels go down, and we get headaches. Drinking more throughout the day can help you being happy on the job.
Give yourself a pat on the back once in a while. After you had a fruitful day, don’t forget to enjoy a piece of candy, or go out on a date with your significant other. Prepare yourself to feel fulfilled, and look forwards to it!
