By Sera Kazungu
The everyday monotony of a job may cause the occasional case of boredom. Given the demanding nature of jobs, it is understandable to sometimes feel like you are stuck in a rat race.
The following are ways in which you can find motivation to face your job without the fear that you will be bored and unproductive.
How To Find Motivation In Your Job.
1. Make your workplace a place you love being
Surround yourself with things that make you happy. It could be a prize calendar, a picture or even a mirror. This is a good way to ensure that you always have a reason to smile during the day. Personalizing your work space will enable you to ‘own’ it and give it a home feel.
Always focus on changing it up. It is said that a change is almost as good as a rest. Every few weeks, you can re-create your workplace to give it a new feel.
2. Have a sense of humor
Business does not always have to be a straight face affair. Find things that will make you laugh every once in a while as you work. There is no crime in smiling while you are getting your work done.
Join in the jokes and laughter that your colleagues share. Do not be that person who always sits at their desks pretending everyone else does not exist.
3. Check in with your colleagues
Socializing is always a fun thing to do. It brightens your day and gives you an avenue to share ideas with others.
Every once in a while, get up from your desk and ‘touch base’ with one or two colleagues. Apart from keeping you smiling, it will ensure that you remain fresh all day.
4. Take breaks
Are you the kind of person who always sits at their desk from morning to evening? Well, it is time to stop. Your brain needs a break in order to remain creative. Find some time to stand up and stretch.
Being too tired makes you gloomy and unproductive. To be happier at work, find at least 5 minutes every day to unwind.
5. Do not take your work home with you
You should always leave work where it is supposed to be done;at the workplace. Keeping your work life separate from your personal life is a good way to ensure that the two do not clash. This is a good recipe to continue enjoying your job.
