Bad day at work?
It happens to the best of us. As much as we’d always love to have a good day at work, it’s not always the case. Sadly, a bad day can leave us feeling defeated, overwhelmed and a bit down. So today, we’re firing right into our blog post. We want to share with you FOUR things you should do everyday before you leave work today for a better tomorrow. Let’s get started!
Be Honest with yourself.
Are you the cause of your bad day? Could you have handled something better? Maybe you’ve performed really well today and completed all your tasks. Regardless of how your day has went, be honest with yourself. To have a better tomorrow, acknowledge how your day has gone. What did you do well and where could you improve? Figure that out. Try and improve on yourself tomorrow and keep doing the things you do well!
Iron out any concerns.
Maybe you had a disagreement with another colleague or a superior. If it’s playing on your mind, speak with them. If you don’t, it’ll most likely play on your mind after you’ve left work. It’s always good to be the bigger person and to clear your conscience. Iron out any concerns so you’re not carrying them around on your shoulders into a new day.
Tidy workspace = tidy mind.
No matter what your work environment looks like, a tidy workspace = a tidy mind. Whizz round at the end of the day and give it a tidy. Put everything in it’s place, take any dishes back to the kitchen, empty the bin, tidy away your papers. A messy workspace can be overwhelming and distracting. Keep on top of it to keep on top of your tasks.
For a Better Tomorrow, Plan Tomorrow Today.
The very last thing you should do everyday in work is plan your tomorrow. Grab a notebook, a pen and jot down a list. Write down any left over tasks from today and then add in all your tasks for the following day. That way, when you come in in the morning you can get straight down to business. You know what’s facing you before you even come in. You’re prepared ahead of time. It also saves you 10 minutes in the morning trying to figure out what you need to do that day.
Are you going to try these four things out to see if you’ll have a better day tomorrow? We hope so! Let us know how it goes!
