Motivation is everything


... but not always easy! Who does not know that - actually, the time is a bit tight, but you just can not get up. You drag yourself tired into the office, arrive at the last moment and who is already sitting there? This incredibly good-humored and motivated colleague. "Good morning, sleep well?" He smashes and you think, "If he still philosophizes about the early bird, I'll go home right back." The problem: such a tired or bad mood often runs through the whole day and also has a negative effect on your own productivity. With a good mood and a high level of motivation everything is easier to do by hand and this also has a positive influence on the result. But how do you successfully increase your motivation? Here are our tips for your motivation boost:

The morning makes the day


The snooze button is your best friend? You should change that. Scientific evidence shows that taking advantage of the Snooze button makes you even more tired, as we then fall directly back into the deep sleep phase. As a result, getting up is even more difficult and there is often a lack of concentration, which sometimes continues throughout the day. So: it's best to set your alarm clock exactly to the time you have to get up and then it's right out of the box. Too difficult? This helps:

  • Be prepared to restart completely and immediately or the next morning
  • Done? Then you reward, for example with your favorite breakfast
  • Smile in the mirror, 1 minute - that's proven to lift the mood

Realistic goals for every day


In a demanding and stressful working day, of course, a daily motto alone will not help you. It is important to set realistic goals and to write to-do lists. So you keep the overview and prevents stressful surprises. Do you know how much fun it is to tick off completed tasks? That gives an additional motivation boost - definitely try it! If the tasks are too big or too big, they simply split. So you can always tick off individual sub-items and the daily list shrinks and shrinks. So you can always celebrate small successes. Feel good!

Good atmosphere in the office


A good atmosphere is really important in the office, because if you do not feel comfortable there, you will always be looking for reasons not to go to work or to arrive in a bad mood. Therefore, you should make your job as comfortable as possible. The following points are helpful:

  1. Ensures a good team atmosphere. If you look forward to the colleagues in the morning, the mood increases. Joint laughter in between breaks down suspense and brings new motivation for in between.

  2. A well-equipped office and ergonomic work furniture can significantly increase the well-being in the workplace.
