#14 Respect others to earn respect.
If someone in the office is not doing fine with their tasks, do not mock them. Instead, help everyone in need. You are on the same team with the same goal of upping your career to the next level. Why not do it together, instead of competing with every person in the office? When your colleagues see you as a friend whom they can always count on, they will admire you and respect will always be visible between the two of you.
#15 Be Kind and say “Thank you.”
Everyone likes to be appreciated. Express verbal gratitude towards your colleagues and the people around you. Give compliments when deserved. Receiving expressions of gratitude makes us feel a heightened sense of self-worth and creates a better environment.
#16 Don’t get into office politics.
It’s easy to get trapped in the web of office politics. But gossiping about who’s going to get fired only serves to make you worried about your own job. While some gossip is harmless, politely excuse yourself from the conversation when it takes a negative turn.
#17 Leave Personal Problems at Home
It is quite normal to have problems at home, too. If you have one, or two, or many, do not bring them to work. Letting your domestic problems stay in your head will have a negative impact on your career. Your officemates and colleagues will have a hard time working with you. Emotions are contagious, and if bad vibes are circulating around the office, you can never tackle your pending jobs well.
#18 Create an ‘Office Nest’
Since you spend so much time at work, if you want to improve your happiness there, you should “make your space your own, decorate your area as much as your company policy permits, and make yourself as comfortable and relaxed as you can be in your office.”
#19 Take regular breaks.
Taking frequent breaks makes the workday less monotonous and relieves your exhaustion, both of which contribute to boredom. Unfortunately, scrolling through your Facebook news feed doesn’t count. You have to stand up to make your break work for you. Take a quick lap around the office, or go outside for maximum benefit.
#20 Give importance to your Lunch Break
Don’t eat lunch at your desk, change environments, if you can, go for a walk. Practice some Walking Meditation. or have a walk in a park
#21 Protect your personal life.
A few late nights at the office? OK. Bringing home piles of work every night? Not OK. While constantly working at home might feel productive, it’ll overwhelm you and make you hate your job. Leave your work at work. Doing so will also remind you-you’re not defined by your job, even though it can feel like it at times.
#22 Eat Healthy and Stay Hydrated
Maintaining a good diet and keeping yourself properly hydrated throughout your workday can really make a big difference in your energy level and attitude.”
#23 Move Around
Whether it’s finding the time to take a walk outside, run up and down the stairs on your break, stretch, or do a 10-minute exercise, moving around often throughout the workday has a number of beneficial effects–even if you regularly exercise and eat healthy.
#24 Count your blessings.
Being thankful makes you happier, and that goes double at the workplace. When you have a bad day, write down everything you’re grateful for at work – even if it’s as basic as “I’m thankful to have a job.” Want a daily reminder? Stick a post-it note that says “No Complaining” on your desk and see how it affects your day.
#25 Practice some Conscious Breathing
During your working day, remember to practice some conscious breathing, it can definitely help you be less stressed and more relaxed. When we are upset or stressed our breathing becomes quick and shallow. Breathing deeply and slowly instantly calms us down mentally as well as physically.
#26 Go on a vacation
Take time off to recharge from the stress of work. In fact, taking a vacation not only relieves stress and recharges us, it can also improve our overall health and make us more productive at work.
Make everything in your workplace enjoyable. Do not overthink of how much money you will earn or when you will have your promotion. Just be on the positive side and let time give all the rewards for your hard work. Set up your goals and think of reasons why you are so determined to do your job. Spend time with your family too, and relax. Do not forget to unwind and enjoy other great things in life.
