While we can’t promise you’ll land a big promotion, we can recommend these daily habits that can help make you more successful at work. Adapting the right workplace rituals can make a big difference in your career and make you a happier, healthier employee.
Be more successful at work
- Control your attitude in the workplace. While it may take all of your strength not to break down crying in the bathroom during lunch after a tough meeting, mood makes a big difference in the workplace. In addition to bringing yourself down, it can also affect the productivity of those around you. Regularly check your mood and attitude and course correct as necessary to decrease negativity in your mind and increase your productivity.
- Don’t dwell. Dwelling on conversations or events that didn’t go well activates the same biochemical hormonal processes in your body as the original occurrence. By imagining these conversations and replaying them in your head, you’re physically recreating the event in your body, which keeps stress hormones high. Instead, identify what you can learn from the experience and move on. You’ll be more successful at work if you can stop dwelling.
- Plan ahead. Many of us spend our time answering urgent requests, which prevents us from strategizing on how to best spend our time. Set aside time every week to plan out your strategy for upcoming projects. Make time for urgent requests, but taking time to analyze your workload and how long each project should take will help you be more successful at work, and at managing your time and goals.
- Fuel your body. Making better eating choices before, during and after work can help you be more successful by fueling your body and giving you the ability to perform at your best. Pack a meal or snack to ensure you don’t go too long without eating and be sure to avoid caffeine several hours before the end of the work day to allow for a good night’s sleep. Better eating choices and sleep habits can help you perform your best and lead to being more successful at work.
It’s on you
If you want to be more successful at work, it’s all in your hands. From making better eating choices to controlling your attitude, if you adapt these healthy habits into your daily routine, you’ll snag that promotion in no time.
