It’s totally normal to go through peaks and troughs of motivation and boredom at work.
Heck, you’re there for most of your day and there’s a lot that can happen in those 8+ hours!
But if you’re feeling down about your day-to-day routine, you’re probably wanting to know: how do you put the spark back in your relationship with your 9-5?
The heavy stuff:
Some reports suggest that we’re facing a worldwide employee engagement crisis.
And in Australia, 60% of employees are disengaged from their workplace.
Here’s how you can take charge:
If you’re worried that you are feeling a little less in love with your job, perhaps try one of these 4 techniques:
- Change the way you work. It could be something as simple as a new approach to doing things, changing up your morning routine or swapping your desk for a standing table and trying a different environment.
- Look at the big picture and practice some good, old fashioned gratitude. Try writing down all the things you like about your job. Then go and do more of those things!
- Take some time out and have a coffee with your work colleagues or your boss and ask about their weekend or their family.
- Get creative and try something new – ask your boss if you can enrol in some online training and learn a new skill. It’s amazing how motivated you’ll be when you’ve got some new tricks up your sleeve.
Hopefully these helped boost your motivation!
However if you’re still struggling with all things work, it might be time to have a little chat with yourself and think about your options.
