Do you like your job? According to statistics, you don’t. Well, at least that’s true if you live in the United States. According to a 2013 Gallup study, 70% of Americans don’t like their jobs. To me, that’s very sad, especially since we spend so many of our awake hours working. It seems we’re always looking forward to the weekends, without ever being able to enjoy the weeks. It shouldn’t be that way.
What if you could do something during the day that would help you like your job more? Would you do it? How about 44 things? Officevibe created this fun infographic below called 44 Simple Daily Activities to Enjoy Your Work.
Not only will these activities benefit you, they will also benefit your company and the planet. Now if those kind of things won’t help you like your job, I don’t know what will.
This infographic makes me smile. I think it’s cute how they assigned points (wellness points, productivity points, environmental points, etc.) to each activity on this massive list.
A lot of these things may seem like common sense. The problem is, we get busy, and then we forget to do some of the simple things that can really make a difference in our lives and the lives of others.
For me, just something as simple as walking to the water cooler to fill up my cup is enough of a break to get recharged. Sitting for too long during the day can be one of the worst things we can do for our health and our mindset. If nothing else, be sure to get up once every 30 – 45 minutes just to look around, get some water and say hello to a coworker.
I’m one of the lucky ones I suppose. I love what I do, and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Everything I do during the day is either tech-related or blogging-related. Both of those things make me very, very happy. I want you to like your job too.
