10 Tips for Revitalizing Your Workday - Finnegan Pierson - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog

10 Tips for Revitalizing Your Workday

Many people who work in an office environment regularly experience the fatigue that comes with the day-in-day-out routine. Even highly creative jobs have their moments of monotony. With monotony comes lack of motivation, which is followed by poor productivity. You feel bored and tired and the weeks slow to a crawl and little seems to be getting done. The 3 p.m. slump could become history with a little self-discipline. Try these simple tips to help your day at the office move more smoothly:

 

Prioritize Tasks

Make your most important task of the day your first priority. Complete this job before moving on to anything else. Once you’re done with that task you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment, which will help to keep you motivated.

 

Be the Thoughtful Co-Worker

Procrastination is an easy trap to fall into, especially if it’s a task that’s boring for you. However, if you have someone depending on your work being completed at a certain time, you don’t want to let them down. Having a reputation for being dependable will get you a long way with your coworkers.

 

Learn Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness meditation is an unknown method to many but has proven very effective in increasing the ability to focus, maintain attention and to enhance memory and learning. This meditation is the practice of mentally training yourself to be in the present by focusing on your thoughts, feelings and sensations that are being experienced at that moment. One great thing about this meditation is that you don’t have to be sitting still with your eyes closed; you can practice it while doing any activity that doesn’t require a lot of thought. 

 

Try 90-Minute Increments

Research shows that the human body works best in 90-minute cycles. “Brain fog” tends to set in for about 20 minutes following each cycle. A short break helps to regain focus. Standing at your desk and stretching or taking a stroll to the water cooler should help.




Switch Between Tasks

Sometimes it’s pretty evident that you’ve just hit a wall with your work. Switching your focus to a different task or project can assist in maintaining your productivity while alleviating boredom. 

 

Exercise Regularly

Regular exercise is not only helpful for the body; it’s also excellent for relieving mental stress and anxiety. What’s more, physical exercise can help increase focus, memory and learning potential. Just a short walk outside your San Francisco office space during a lunch break can help.

 

Rest Your Mind

Mental fatigue is bound to happen. Trying to ignore it and continue working probably won’t yield the result you want. So, if you feel yourself hitting a roadblock, take a five-minute break away from the desk to boost energy, motivation and creativity. 

 

Add White Noise

If you have trouble concentrating in a busy office environment, a white noise machine can drown out surrounding sounds while not being distracting to your officemates. These machines are a lot less cumbersome than headphones and less distracting than a radio. 

 

Declutter

Clutter can be a major cause of anxiety. Although you might not always be totally conscious of it, just the mere sight of a work area in disarray can be stress-inducing. You also might not realize how much time you spend each day searching for things in the clutter. Disorganization can really decrease productivity. Many people live by the rule of “organized chaos,” but it’s not helping your stress level. Taking a little time to organize your workspace can lead to much more time spent being productive.

 

Make Yourself Comfortable

Being too comfortable at your desk can lead to sleepiness, which definitely doesn’t help with motivation. However, being uncomfortable at your desk can also be a major distraction. Sitting in a hard chair or shivering in a room that’s too cold are just a couple of common issues for office employees. Try to find that middle ground between complete discomfort and an unscheduled nap.

 

As monotonous as things may get, your workday doesn’t have to be stressful and unproductive. Oftentimes putting yourself first and taking time to clear your head can lead to a much more productive and stress-free workday.
