Even if you love your job and cannot imagine doing any other thing with your life, there will be times when things slow down and you’ll find yourself fourfiveseconds from wildin’ like Rihanna and Kanye. Here are five ways to beat boredom to the curve on those days when you can’t wait for Friday.
1) Take a break
As obvious as this may seem, it is not very obvious. Experts have found that a five or ten minute break from your normal routine can work wonders for one’s psyche. When you find your mind wondering at work, literally take a break from life!
2) Become an overachiever and get some bonus points.
Do more. When you return from your break, push yourself to achieve more than you normally would have achieved. Not only will you be recognised for the extra work but working and getting recognition has a way of upping motivational levels like nothing else.
3) Seek new challenges
Who doesn’t love a good challenge? Find something to do that will get your heart racing again and do it. Whether it is directly related to your job or not, just being excited about doing something daring has a way of bleeding into every area of your life.
4) Listen to music
Ah, the power music holds. If your office permits you, listening to some upbeat or inspirational music can inject life into any routine and activity.
5) Go on a walk
Yes, leave your office building and take a stroll. It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life that we rarely take a moment to stop and appreciate the beauty of nature that surrounds us. Take a stroll and really marvel at everything around you and be in that moment.
