It happens to the best of us. At one point, we lose motivation after doing intense and stationary work long enough. But there is no need to leave your desk feeling exhausted. Our team came up with a few tips that will help keep your enthusiasm and energy up while at your desk.
Give yourself the clean workspace you deserve. Sure, we understand that messy creatives have a method to their madness, but it’s ultimately best to stay organized and uncluttered, so your favorite tools and gadgets will be easily accessible.
Change Your Surroundings
Pretty up your workspace. Simple things like a small print, photo of a loved one, or sentimental item in your space will give you a sense of happiness each time you glance at it.
Start The Day Happy
Before you get into the nitty-gritty of work, take a few minutes to go through sites that make you happy. It could be a favorite website, social network, or blog. Just be sure you don’t get sucked into the Internet rabbit hole.
Make Time To Laugh
It’s easy to go a whole day without laughing if you get into workaholic mode early on. Take a break to two to add some humor into your day. Don’t worry, we won’t judge if you’re into Internet memes and cat videos.
Post Your Goals
You may already have your personal goals outlined on some task management platform, but it would be nice to also have them listed on a piece of paper and displayed on a wall. The constant reminder will serve as constant motivation.
