How To Leave Work At The Office

Depending on your line of work, a nine-to-five job may not be your reality. If you have a demanding profession, late nights at the office or taking work home with you may be your norm. Bringing work home once in a while is OK, but constantly doing so can put a strain on not only you, but your family and home life as well. It is important to find a balance between being a successful professional and your role at home, whether it be a mother, father, husband, wife, friend or roommate. This is easier said than done, which is why we put together these tips to help you leave work at the office.

Take Time To Unwind
Whether you have a big deadline coming up or are working hard to earn a promotion, it’s common for the stress of work to stick with you even after you’re off the clock. Bringing these stressors home with you can be dangerous. Being on-edge with your family members or friends because something work-related is on your mind can cause harm to any relationship. To reduce the risk of lashing out after a long day, take some time to unwind before you get home. What you need to do to relax is a personal choice, but one idea would be to listen to your favorite tunes while taking the long way home.

Unplug From Your Electronics
Today’s technology makes it incredibly easy to stay connected no matter where you are, including home. Having your work email on your smartphone or tablet makes it easy to get sucked in to working when you’re supposed to be off the clock. What you intended to be a quick glimpse at your email can quickly turn in to a problem you need to deal with. The solution? Disconnect yourself from your work phone, email and everything else that ties you to work while you’re at home, unless you’re in a field that requires you to be on call. Even if it’s just for a few hours a day, your stress level, family and friends will appreciate your focus on them, instead of your email.

Enjoy “Me Time”
Once you get home and are unplugged from your electronics, slip into some casual clothes and do something that you enjoy doing. If you have a dog take him for a walk, enjoy dinner with your family, go out to the movies or treat yourself to a mini shopping spree. It’s important to make time for yourself because before you know it, you’ll be on your way to work again!

It’s Okay To Say No
There is a reason that Superman is a fictional character; nobody has the power to do everything. While you may feel like you can take on every single task that comes your way, there are probably some things that you don’t have the time to do. If your to-do list is full or if you have a big deadline coming up, it is ok to say no or ask for help when you need it. Taking on too many projects at once is often what leads to having to bring work home. From time to time you may need to work a few hours away from your desk, but learning to say no to some things will keep you from spending every night on the job.

Your job is an important part of your life, but it shouldn’t completely control it. Keep these tips in mind during the Holidays when your work and home life are busier and more stressful than usual!

Quick Tips To Get Motivated At Work

Sometimes it can be difficult to find your motivation at work. Even if you love your job, there can be times when you find yourself in a slump that is tough to get out of. It is one thing to have an occasional case of the Mondays, but consistently being unmotivated can be dangerous to your productivity level and job security. Here are 5 tips to remember the next time you are feeling less than motivated at work:

Always Challenge Yourself
If everything you do at work comes easy to you, it’s simple for your motivation to slip away. This may sound strange, but being too good at your job can even make work boring. If this is the case for you, consider shaking things up a bit by challenging yourself. Ask yourself things like, “How can I take my job to the next level,” or “Are there ways I can improve day to day tasks?”

Take A Break
Workplace distractions are inevitable. Even if you have your own office, there is probably something that keeps you from being 100 percent focused, like excessive emails or your cell phone. Distractions are often a culprit for stealing your motivation, so if you’re feeling unfocused get up and out of the office for a quick break. Walks around the block or going out for lunch are both good ways to refresh your mind and body.

Update Your Skills
Whether you’re at work or elsewhere, it’s always beneficial to learn new things because doing so keeps your mind fresh. How you update your skills depends on your job position and your field. However, keeping up with industry updates by reading, watching informative videos or attending conferences is usually a good way to stay sharp.

Daily Dose of Motivation
If you can’t seem to find your motivation, it may help for motivation to be delivered to you! Free services like Seven Quotes allow you to sign up for quotes of the day. You might find that a daily dose of inspiration will give you a new outlook and help you power through your work day.

Give Yourself Something To Look Forward To
Have you ever noticed you are more motivated when you have something to look forward to? That’s because a little incentive goes a long way! Whether you have a vacation coming up, a dinner with friends or are going out to a movie, if give yourself something to look forward to you’ll push yourself harder without even realizing it!
