New Year’s resolutions, diets and fitness regimes are everywhere in January. For us all here it’s straight back into doing what we do best. Producing quality bespoke self-adhesive labels.
Here are our top Five tips to ease you back into work too.
1. Re-vamp your workspace
To help de-clutter your workspace, first complete those little tasks you never got around too. Doing this will free up thinking space now those tasks are out of the way. Get rid of all those unneeded papers that clog up your paper tray. Throw away all the rubbish that’s hiding in your bottom draw. Finished? Now you can sit back and relax with a clear desk.
2. Update photographs or computer backgrounds
Had a lot of fun over the holidays? Why not print some of the pictures out and pop them into a photo frame. Limited on desk or wall space? Why not add a picture slideshow to your desktop background instead. Seeing loved ones or recent good times is a great way to boost your energy levels.
3. Set yourself some goals
I’m not talking resolutions here, instead, I mean daily goals. Goal setting is a brilliant way to get focused on what needs doing. This can be in the form of a to-do list or daily check sheet.
For example, here is my morning to-do list;
- Complete this post.
- Email over our tactile warning label price list to a prospective client.
- Process a purchase order for a five-colour peel and reveal label for a food processing client.
4. Plan some time for yourself
Book a holiday, a spa day, a day off to read or a day out with friends. Anything! Make sure you have something planned to look forward to. With the less than pleasant weather January brings us, it is easy to have a lack of motivation. This is why having some planned time for you already booked into the calendar is great. Go, go, do it now!
5. Write down what you enjoy at work
Make a list of what you most enjoy about work. For me, it’s working with my colleagues and customers to create unique label designs. One example was a recent four colour plus silver foil and soft touch laminate label we produced. I love seeing the reaction of our customer when they see the finished labels.
What do you most enjoy about work?
We had a lot of fun in December with our giveaways and we hope you enjoyed following along. Hopefully, you found some value in these tips now. Would love to hear what your top back to work tip is.
Anyway, back to it for me, where’s my to-do list?
See you in the next post.
