Reduce stress and anxiety in your office with a few simple tips.
Monday mornings at the office are rarely an atmosphere of relaxation and productivity. The deadlines for the week approach and anxiety and stress fill the office before the first pot of coffee has brewed.
Even though work can be stressful, the environment doesn’t have to be! Creating a calm office workspace will make your whole life healthier as well as increasing productivity among employees.
Make room: Designate a room just for relaxation for your employees. Deck it out in comfy furniture, muted colors, muted lighting, and Yoga mats. Having a space like this for employees is a small addition, but with huge benefits.
Let in light: Open up the blinds to allow natural light to fill your office space with sunlight (a.k.a. the source of life!). In addition, encourage your team to get outside for fresh air on their breaks.
Live a little: It’s okay to treat your employees now and again! Set monthly goals for the team so that you can celebrate with catered lunch when they hit their target. Better yet, surprised them with donuts or coffee one morning.
Host Woof Wednesdays: Allow your employees to bring their dogs to work one day a week. ‘Woof Wednesdays’ is a global movement where dogs are allowed in the office, proving that employers are a lot more relaxed when their pooch is wagging that tail with pure joy!
Start simple: Get rid of the unhealthy snacks and sugary beverages in the employee kitchen. Instead, provide your team with a fresh fruit bowl and bottles of water. Healthy and nutritious items will keep your employees’ energy levels up without dipping throughout the day.
