We found a great article on LinkedIn on how to stay motivated at work, and reworked the best points for our friends, residents and awesome CLV Group team!
Here are some tips on how to stay motivated at work that are all easily accomplished in 10 minutes or less! It’s the simple things in life that make all the difference:
1. Take 10 minutes for every 50 minutes of work
Try taking a quick 10 minute break for every 50 minutes of work. Even machines needs rest once in a while! After some time knocking away at the computer (and all the other things you do!) one can get tired or feel monotonous. THIS is when you need to take that small 10 minute break to recharge!
2. Use your 10 minutes wisely
The key is to stick to the 10 minutes you’ve allotted yourself. Start a timer on your phone or watch to keep yourself disciplined. How do you optimize your 10 minutes? Check out the points below to find out!
It’s been proven time and time again that listening to music at work can boost productivity. Music is food for the working soul! We’ve compiled a CLV Group work playlist of the best songs to pump you up for a great day at work. So grab your headphones, jump to our premade YouTube playlist, and feel creative, productive and inspired in no time!
4. Look at what you’ve completed
One quick way to stay motivated at work is to look at what you have completed after plugging away for a few hours. Ticking off the to-do list is a great way to visualize what you’ve accomplished AND feel good about it!
5. Read something interesting
Try reading some interesting articles on your favourite hobby, or something motivating (like this post from CLV Group – great timing!). A good way to quickly access reading material that you find interesting is to have your favourite blogs bookmarked on your desktop. Genius tip, we know.
6. Talk a wlk to the kitchen
Walk to the kitchen to make a cup of coffee, tea or pour yourself glass of water. The walk stretches you out and a quick chat with colleagues is a good way to relax and get motivated for work! We love to joke around here at CLV Group, which is an awesome part of our company culture, and makes it easy to have a casual chat with our colleagues. It provides a break for everyone and we all feel refreshed after a good laugh.
7. Clear your desk
You’ll be surprised with this one. If you’re feeling unmotivated, a messy desk could be the culprit! Clear your table and see how it can clear your mind. Providing yourself with a slightly better and more organized environment can really get the creative vibes going!
Do some of these simple tasks and take small, undisrupted breaks. They can work wonders to stay motivated! Have a great tip on how to stay motivated at work that you’d like to see up on our blog?! Share it with us! Send any tips or tricks to firstname.lastname@example.org
