11 Ways to Be More Positive at Work ...

Most of us need to work in order to earn a living and since we spend a huge portion of our lives working, it’s imperative that we find ways to be more positive at work.

Work isn’t solely economic;

we associate our self worth with what we do, we go to work to stay occupied and generally want to be fulfilled by our life's work.

I frequently hear about the number of people that aren’t satisfied in their jobs (those that are lucky enough to have them right now).

As a result, I’ve come up with some ways to be more positive at work and evoke a lighter-hearted attitude towards it.

1. Arrive on Time

One of the ways to be more positive at work is to arrive on time and by the same token, get a head start on your commute.

Depending on the work you do and how structured your work environment is, there may or may not be demands to arrive at a certain time.

However, I’m advocating that in order to be your best during the workday, try to arrive on time.

2. Don’t Constantly Check E-mails

During a training session at my last job, we were told not to check e-mails first thing when we arrived nor constantly throughout the day.

Instead, they recommended setting aside one hour in the morning and one hour in the afternoon purely to read, check and respond to e-mails.

That way, you can truly devote a dedicated chunk of time to e-mail communications and not feel so scattered by them.

3. Host Meetings outside

I never really enjoyed meetings unless there was something useful to glean from them.

Women tend to schedule meetings less than men as we organize them only when they're absolutely necessary.

If you're hosting lots of meetings, try and find new locations for them, like a park bench, coffee shop, or hold a working lunch.

By switching up the location, you’ll find everyone comes back to work in better spirits and with a better work ethic!3
