Have fun during work? No way. That is what comes to most people’s mind when it comes to having fun at the workplace. It seems and sounds as the worst combination ever made.
But, if we look insight, we would certainly understand that if maintained the balance, it could be considered as the best combo. If you also reserve some chunk of your work time doing something off the word can help you concentrate and become more creative at work.
Laughing and having fun until and unless it doesn’t affect your work and your co-workers can make you feel refreshed like never before and more creative. We are not asking you to set a projector and start watching a movie all the way. No, but there are these tiny things that will brighten up your mood.
Decorate your work table
This may sound like a cliché but that is the way it is. If you set or say decorate your table where you are supposed to work can help you stay motivated.
A picture of the family, everything set at the right place and in the right order makes your mind clear and you become more focused. You should decorate your table in any way you like but make sure it is not something violent or disturbing.
Compliment and appreciate employees
Not only it makes the other person feel good, but it also makes you feel good. If you go by any co- worker’s table and compliment on the way they look or how they presented a project or presentation make you feel more diverse and makes the other person become more respectful towards you.
At the same time, appreciating someone’s work or asking for help makes the other person feel delighted. If you compliment or appreciate someone, it feels the same as you are being complimented. So, be open and make yours and the other person’s day nice and motivated.
Take a break and have a walk
It is okay if you take some time out from the work and have a walk-in an open area. Fresh air helps you rejuvenate so that you go and work more focused. It is better, that you go out of that work environment and have a walk.
You can also utilize this time getting bumped up again. You can have a small snack that would provide you with energy. When you return, you will surely become more enthusiastic and productive.
Celebrate things that may sound small. Organize feasts at the workplace. It not only makes you feel pleasant but also your co-workers. It can be a celebration for a successful project or can even be your work anniversary.
If you start living things up, you would be galvanized. Such small things make your workplace comfortable and more enjoyable for everyone.
Laughing is the best therapy. If you have those comedian skills, do not be shy to flaunt it. Laugh and make other people laugh as well and make their day. But, make sure that you are not offensive since comedy comes in all forms. It should not affect other people around you and not make others uncomfortable.
Do not hesitate to make friends
Most people become hesitant when it comes to making friends in the workplace. Whenever you wake up, you would become even more excited to go to work and meet your friend. You can get to know things that you maybe do not know and help you in many aspects. So, go make friends if you haven’t already.
