How to "Give it All" in the Workplace
And still "keep your health"!!!
1. Get a proper night’s sleep each night before going in to work.
Our brains function on sleep, and without the sufficient amounts, we tend to wid up cranky and beyond exhausted at our jobs. Pile on that the added stresses of an increasing workload, as the day goes by, and you’ve got a recipe for trouble in the making! But you can fix this now by going to bed earlier each night….
2. Eat a strong, power-packed breakfast each morning before going in to work.
Milk, orange juice, eggs, sausage, yogurt, bananas, waffles, bagels, and much more, the breakfast menu is what it is for a reason ---- it’s full of great selections made to start you off “on the right foot” as you head out the door! Take your pick of anything that offers plenty of protein, carbs, vitamins and hydration, and try to stay away from consuming too much sugar in the mornings ---- especially if you wish to avoid the dreadful ‘sugar crash’ that notoriously makes its way around in the evenings. Many unknowing office employees have already fallen prey to its wilful schemes. Don’t fall for its trap! Be smarter….
3. Make friends with your co-workers as is moderately possible.
When it comes to befriending your coworkers, your supervisors and managers, or even your boss, an old saying comes to mind, “Easy does it”. You don’t want to overdo it so as to intertwine the professional with the personal in a way that makes it difficult for you to separate the two. Yes, you can tell an appropriate joke here and there, during off hours in the break room, but remember the reason you are there. Your job comes first, so don’t put it on the line over a friendship!
4. Sign up at a nearby gym and let out some tensions there after each long workday.
This alone goes without saying that, in today’s high-stress work environments --- be they online or otherwise --- work must properly balance itself with play, or else one will burn out the other to exhaustion. It’s always important to keep a proper balance between the two. This alone cannot be stressed enough.
5. Ask your boss if there is anything you can do to serve the company better.
Surprisingly, asking this sole question can open up many unique opportunities for you as an employee; for one, it will show greater initiative on your end as well as interest in the growing needs and overall well-being of the company you currently work for. Both of these are good signs of maturity and can lead potential upward progression within the ranks of the company. Assume the time is right, your work ethic has shown itself more than admirable, and there is an opening ---- and your boss might even promote you to a new position. Or you may even be rewarded some time off for your many efforts and for remaining so proactive. Ask, and you receive ---- and in terms of feedback, no matter now bad, learn from it with an open mind and consider implementing it as you plan on that near-future promotion or vacation.
