Do you know that your workplace can affect your work efficiency? Have you ever thought about it? If not, just think, how do you feel when you entered into your office, sit on your chair and start working? If you get easily bored or disinterested with your daily work, then just look around you, your workplace might be a cause. A peaceful and stress free work place increases the work efficiency that directly affects your productivity.
Let’s see how small changes can make your office environment more interesting and increase productivity:
Clean out the mess: Yes, the mess on your table can generate mess in your mind. There should be only those things on your table which you really need. All unnecessary things should be thrown out from your desk or cubicles as they distract you
Organized work place: Now, whatever you have on your desk should be kept in a well organized manner, so that you can easily get them when needed. Misplaced objects can be a cause of stress, as you will have to spend so much time on finding them.
Motivational environment: Life is full of possibilities, and sometimes we all have to face the situations when we feel despondent due to personal or professional issues. At that time we needed a spark which can motivate us and convert our negativity into positivity. This spark might be someone’s words or some motivational text. You can place some motivational quotes on your desk, which can help you out on that situation. Charge yourself with these quotes and get back your work passion.
One task at a time: Multiple tasks at a time create the impression of confusion, panic and chaos. Even if you are a multitasker, science says that a person can only give his best to a single piece of work at a time. Your mind can get confused with multitasking and it will cause anxiety. Therefore, focus on the work more, which is your priority at that time.
Take care of your Postures: We should all know how to sit correctly. Bad postures can give you pain in your neck, back, shoulders, legs, eyes and sometimes can be the cause of your headache. Correct postures lessen your stress on your body parts.
Short breaks: Continuous work can make you tired and decrease your work efficiency. Skipping breaks can hamper your productivity. Short breaks are always recommended while long hours working. You can do many stress reliving things like taking a sip of tea or coffee, enjoy your favorite music without disturbing others, do some stretching exercises or just go for a short outdoor walk.
