But this time of year also brings darker days, flu season and workloads that are monstrous. It is the Winter Blues!
We all need a little help beating the blues, so here are my 3 top tips!
I know, it is freezing outside and maybe not the best walking weather and you are probably thinking to yourself, who on earth wants to walk in the cold?
However, putting on your favourite winter coat, a hat and scarf then taking a stroll on your lunch and coming back to heat up some left over hotpot is what dreams are made of.
20 minutes away from your desk can help restart you after lunch. Has anyone ever just sat at their desk with their lunch and then ended up in an afternoon slump? (I know I have)
- Organise your desk
In my opinion there is nothing that puts a smile on my face more, than an organised desk. Those papers that may have been piling up over the summer months need filing or shredding making room for the fresh start after the festive season! The wind down to Christmas at work can be the most stressful and can give you the winter blues in itself.
Clean desk = clean mind!!
There is nothing worse than waking up, defrosting the car in the dark and making your way to work. Then arriving in the office to find that isn’t well lit either, then making your way back home once you have finished work, again in the dark. Can you spot the theme here?
The office you work in should be well lit in the winter, a bright workspace can help with alertness, productivity and energy.
