As the winter season comes to an end, you may notice that over the past season you’ve been feeling blue or suffering from low-energy levels and lethargy. This can all make a regular workday feel a little more challenging than usual. The cold weather and shorter days of winter leave some of us vulnerable to Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
Here are some tips to help you stay motivated, focused, and productive as you breeze through your tasks at work:
Plants are known to help increase our oxygen intake, and researchers have found that they can increase office productivity, as well as reduce stress and the number of sick days taken
Add Bright Colors
It’s no secret that bright and cheerful colors, such as sunshine yellows, flamingo pinks, fire-engine reds, and baby blues, can make us feel more alert and upbeat.
Keep Your Desk Tidy
Even on sunnier days, a messy desk can lead to a sleepy or cluttered mind. A healthy and happy workplace is a clean and tidy one, so organize your desk with stationary, filing, and storage systems so that it’s neat and welcoming.
Dry winter air and indoor heating can cause stuffiness, colds, or sinus problems, not to mention, uncomfortable dry skin and thirst. Remember to drink plenty of water during the day.
But before you know it Spring will be here! In just a few short weeks, you will be able to sit outside on your lunch break and soak up the sun. Totus Business Center offers several great spots outside to enjoy your lunch or enjoy a stroll around the block.
