  • Tip #3: Move!

    Get up from your desk at least once an hour to walk around the office.

    !Take the stairs once a day. 11 flights is a

    legitimate workout that will add up over time !

    Suggest walking meetings when its nice out- your guest will thank you!

    !Pace while youre on the phone

    !Commit to getting off of the subway/bus 1 stop early. Those extra few blocks will do you good

  • You know you ned to workout to keep your body in shape. Your mind is no different. Learning and

  • Tip #2: Change your background

  • Tip #3: Take a minute

    SCHEDULE 1-MINUTE MEDITATION SESSIONS !

    "Use the body and breathe. You don't even have to close your eyes. Tune into the actual sensations of the breath so you can feel it come in and go

    out. Notice the thoughts and emotions that come, and try your best to have an interest in them as

    experiences in the moment. Mindfulness is all about relationships. It's not about stopping the thoughts

    and blanking out; it's relating to them and watching them, rather than being taken over by

    them. Then we have a choice: I'm going to let that thought go, or I'm going to act on it."

  • Tip #4: Enjoy human nature

    FACT: People are hilarious!

    Let's face it: People do really strange things. You have a choice when

    confronted with these foibles: 1) Be irritated or 2) Be amused Being irritated makes you miserable

    but being amused helps you find creative ways to work around the

    limitations of others.

  • Tip #5: Socialize

    Socializing with colleagues is scientifically proven to make us happier at work. Having a work BFF actually makes you more

    productive and motivated during the workday. !

    Dont forget to take time to actually get to know each! !

    Get a drink after work Bond over a shared TV obsession

    Chat about weekend plans

  • Tip #6: Fight decision fatigue

    Each decision you make depletes your cognitive resources, making each future decision more difficult. This can quickly

    exhaust you and make you feel run down. !

    Take yourself out of certain decisions. Before weighing in on something at work,

    ask yourself: !

    1) Is it high impact? 2) Do you have a strong opinion about it?

    !Even picking out your clothes the night

    before, or eating the same breakfast every day for a week can fight decision fatigue.

  • Tip #7: Give Kudos!

  • JUST KEEP BEING AWESOME!
