7 TIPS TO SURVIVE AT WORK

In my experience of working a 9 to 5 job, life can become a bit of a bummer when you’ve worked for so many years and whether you have good or bad days, there is always light at the end of the tunnel.

I’ve created a list of 7 ways on how to maintain a good relationship at work

SMILE

When you smile, you light up the room. You create a positive presence and at the same time the person receiving your beautiful smile return it and shares it with others. It has been said that a smile gives you an instant facelift so what better than only a smile.

GREET EVERY DAY

My mother taught me that by greeting someone you’re acknowledging the person and wishing her well on her way. A greeting says, hello, may you go well. When someone doesn’t return your good gesture, let it go, we all have our moments in life.

BE POLITE

Being polite is the sweetest and kindest form of a person’s anatomy. Showing consideration for others, using tact and observing social norms are the qualities of being polite.

MAKE EYE CONTACT

Try to establish a connection with your audience. A deliberate look in the eyes of an audience member can communicate how much you care about their thoughts. When you look the person in the eye, you communicate confidence and belief in your point of view.

SHOW INTEREST

Show interest in your colleagues often by talking and listening to them. Don’t take advantage of a listener by doing the talking all the time. Engage by asking questions.

BE POSITIVE

Positive thinking is a mental attitude in which you expect good and favorable results. In other words, positive thinking is the process of creating thoughts that create and transform energy into reality.

HAVE A BIT OF HUMOR – IT HELPS

A sense of humor is part of the art of leadership, of getting along with people, of getting things done.

Tasteful humor is a key to success at work, but there’s a good chance your co-workers aren’t cracking jokes or packaging information with wit on a regular basis

Speaking of experience, even people who aren’t always comfortable sharing their humor (like me) tend to do so in more relaxed environments where the use of humor becomes second nature with everyone’s style.

  • Humor improves productivity
  • Reduces stress
  • Prevents burnout
  • Provides motivation

Herewith I wish you survive every day 🌹
