Is your workplace a total womp-womp zone?
When Fun doesn't existence in your workday, it can make any 40+ hour work week feel unfulfilling and blah.
Here are 3 ways to create more fun at work, instantly.
Surround yourself with cheerleaders.
Who you surround yourself with at work makes a big difference in the Fun department.
Instead of spending your time with the Negative Nancies and Complaining Craigs, surround yourself with colleagues who carry their heads high and regularly hand out compliments to their peers.
Being recognized by other positive people is an easy, effective way to up your fun factor in an instant.
Share your unique personality.
Working in silos has, unfortunately, become the new norm, causing many workplaces to feel disconnected.
By showcasing and sharing your personality with others in on your team, you're creating a fun environment and meaningful connections.
If you’re a dog person, share a weekly “Get To Know Walter” photo of your pup Walter in your Teams chat.
If you’re a foodie, share a recipe or homemade dish with your colleagues at your Friday team meeting.
If you’re like me and love Christmas, set up a holiday tree in your office year-round for your teammates to enjoy (trust me, it was a hit!)
Step away from your desk.
Being glued to a computer screen is a requirement for most roles. But it can be isolating and lonely.
Instead, find opportunities to step away from the screen and into a new environment. Shaking up your work location for a quick coffee or walk can be the difference between a drab day or fab day.
