As is typical for any office worker, the working week usually goes by in a blur. Office politics and aggravations aside, your working hours can be either mundane or hectic. Not very often would they be serene and when work would come in at a nice steady pace.
All of us have ways to unwind on the weekends. What makes the hours spent at work a little more pleasant is if you are lucky enough to have colleagues that you get along with well. Fortunately for me, I do.
What I also find helpful is by viewing my working week and hours in small manageable chunks with set objectives in each of those chunks. That way, nothing seems insurmountable even with ever expanding workloads and tightening schedules. The visualisation trick works for me. That and good time management. I just imagine that I’m back in uni again juggling assignments and exams.
And a good lunch hour can make a day feel half as long, and half as tedious and stressful. I recommend having as many of those as you possibly can under the circumstances.
Last week, I’d arrange with a colleague for lunch today. We were going to Good One BBQ House. When I saw her yesterday, the first thing I said was,
Woohoo! Roast pork and wonton noodles!
I don’t know about you, but that’s the highlight of my week so far. Hahah!
So remember, work to live and not live to work. 🙂
