  • Improves motivation
  • Boosts productivity to help overcome challenges and achieve goals

Staying Positive

Some days it is hard to stay positive and have an optimistic outcome. Here are a few ideas on how to keep up a positive attitude at work:

Find a way to relieve stress. We are all affected by stress in different ways and it is important to find an outlet in which to channel it. Whether you enjoy going to the gym, meeting up with friends, or even just reading a book, find a way to switch off from your stresses in life. Try not to sweat the small stuff and just move on.

Get enough sleep. Make sure you prioritise sleep and your mental health. It is hard to be positive if you’re running on 3 hours sleep! Get into a bedtime routine that allows your mind to switch off at a similar time every night and prepare your body for sleep.

Positive affirmations. Be friendly, fun and inviting. Walk into the office and say “today is going to be a great day”. Saying things out loud and declaring a positive mood (even if you’re not), really does influence how you feel. Using this positivite language and never criticizing or complaining can also help.

Develop positive relationships. You spend most of your days with the same people, so why not get to know them? If you spend time outside of work with these people and better improve your friendships then not only will your positive attitude improve, you will also improve your teamwork in the office.

Take a break. At lunchtime leave your workspace and go for a walk. Having a fresh view and leaving the work behind you gives you a fresh start to the afternoon. Also, the exercise will help to improve your overall happiness.

Job Search Positivity

Having a positive attitude is also important when it comes to your job search. Job hunting can sometimes feel really discouraging and disheartening and therefore positivity is key! You need to have belief in yourself that you do have a good CV, you can interview well, and you can secure the role you’re looking for.
