Most probably, you also have these lazy days at work when you don’t feel like doing anything. On the one hand, you shouldn’t feel guilty about being tired at work since you are not a robot that can work all the time. On the other hand, you should address the problem in case you have too many lazy days.
Feeling unproductive in the office doesn’t only impact your job performance, but it can also damage your self-esteem and irritate you. Moreover, according to science, when you are bored at work, you may feel the same way as you were stressed. If you are not as productive as you can be, check out these tips to help yourself:
Going with the flow can demotivate and make you feel tired. Make a list of things you want to accomplish at your job. If you don’t see career growth, consider changing the company. In case there are a lot of things you want to learn and do within your company, start taking one step at a time. Every day you should stick to a To-Do list. It will be easier to get back into the game once you know what you should be doing.
Also, remember that ‘less is more’. Don’t take a lot of tasks if you know that you will not be able to make it. At some point, you will also need to learn how to delegate tasks effectively.
Take regular breaks
Working long hours will not help you get your job done. On the contrary, it will make you tired pretty fast. Worst-case scenario: you will reach the point of burnout at work. To prevent this, you should follow your schedule and take regular breaks.
Checking your social media during your lunch will not help you to relax. Here are some examples of ‘effective break’: talking to your colleagues, walking around the block, or drinking a cup of tea next to the window. Taking breaks during the working hours will help you restore motivation and improve your creative thinking.
