Three Surprisingly Quick Ways to Enjoy Your Job

Posted Thursday, April 30th, 2015 by .

If you’re like many people, you probably like your job, but you’re far from loving it. Maybe you find yourself staring at the clock every day, counting down the hours to the weekend. Or perhaps you’re one of those workers who has learned to “milk the clock” until you reach your 40 hours and head home. What you need is an overhaul! Here are three creative ways to make work fun!

Take a Break

Many workers feel guilty about taking breaks, but your brain and body really need that time to unwind and regroup. You can compare it to recess as a kid back when you were in grade school. You probably came back inside ready to learn after a mere 15 minutes outside. It still works in adulthood!

Take time to clear your mind of all that office clutter. Try a brisk walk around the parking lot, or try a few yoga poses right at your desk. Your boss should be pleased to see how much more productive you are after you have your own recess at the office.

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle: Make the World a Better Place

Posted Thursday, April 16th, 2015 by .

Around the world we have celebrated the earth on April 22nd every year since 1970. This marks the birth of the environmental movement when 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks, and auditoriums to call for cleaner air, better sewage systems, toxic spill cleanups, and more.

This post is all about what you can reduce, reuse, or recycle to make the world a better place today for the next generation.

Reduce

Reducing is all about lessening human waste and the effects we have on the planet. For example, let’s say you go out and have a nice steak for dinner. Did you drive to a restaurant that’s a couple of blocks away? You could have walked and saved gas. Where is the steak from? If it’s local beef, you cut back on the environmental expenses that went into rendering the beef ready for consumption, as well as transporting it across the US to the destination. Did you use paper napkins? Those napkins were once trees. Get a sense of how much energy you use with the Carbon Footprint calculator.

If you don’t have loads of stuff, and are equally short on space, you can create a workspace in all sorts of unexpected spaces. Even working from under the stairs can be perfectly fine if you’re able to piece together an area that meets your needs!
