7 Ways To Improve Your Weekly Work Routine

Improve  Your Work Week
A quality routine will set your work week up for success. From getting a good nights rest to incorporating goo eating and organizational habits, the tip highlighted in today's post are sure to improve the quality of your work life. Enjoy!

1.) Get A Good Nights Rest

A quality work day starts with a good nights rest. You can't very well operate at your best when you're falling asleep in your office chair at work! Commit to a weekly sleep schedule that ensures you get a full 8 hours of pillow time. Cut out the late night movies that keep you up into the wee hours of the morning. Save that stuff for the weekend.

2.) Eat A Nutritious Breakfast

Take the time to eat a good breakfast before leaving the house, or when you arrive at work. While you'll likely be rushing off to the coffee pot like most, don't forget to provide yourself with the solid foundation needed to make it through the day effectively. Get that metabolism in gear as soon as possible. A muffin, yogurt, piece of fruit, or healthy bowl of cereal will do the trick.

3.) Create A Daily Plan

Another great habit to incorporate into your work day is strategic planning. When you arrive at work, make a list of daily goals you hope to accomplish. Write out your list of tasks and estimated completion times for each. If you have a white board cabinet or tackboard, that's even better! Throughout the day, cross out completed objectives and give yourself a little pain on the back. You deserve it!

4.) Get Organized

With your plan laid out for the day, it's time to get organized. Go through your emails and delete the junk. Print out important notifications and check your voicemail. Don't go through have the morning realizing you've missed an important message from your boss. You may find yourself up against a tight deadline that's sure to cause you stress. That being said, if you're well organized throughout the morning, it will translate throughout the day. Being organized at work means knowing where your important documents are so that you can operate comfortably and effectively. Commit to good organizational habits. They'll pay dividends in the long run!

5.) Deskercise!

You read that right, deskercise! As one of the hottest trends sweeping the nation, deskercise is a great way to work out and stretch right at your workstation. Tons of awesome stretches and desk workout tips are available online that are definitely worth a look. Taking a 10 minute break once every hour to stretch will get your blood flowing and reduce fatigue. As sitting at your chair for long period of time can cause major health problems, deskercise can really help!

6.) Eat A Healthy Lunch

Eating fast food at your desk 5 days a week provides exactly 0 benefits. Get out of the office and eat a healthy lunch with your coworkers. If you bring your lunch to work, be sure to pack healthy stuff to provide you with the energy you need to make it through the remainder of the day. Take your lunch outside and enjoy some fresh air. Lunch should be used as much for eating as breaking up your day. You'll come back feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the rest of the goals on your daily list. That sounds a lot better than over gorging on french fries that leave you feeling defeated and exhausted at your desk.

7.) Clean Before Heading Home

Before you rush out for the day, take the time to clean up your workstation. Organize your files, take out the trash, and wipe down your computer screen. These simple tasks will have your office in tip top shape when you arrive each morning. That way you can get right down to business! In the long run, it's all about forming good habits. Good habits lead to a good work life, and a good work life leads to less stress and increased happiness. That sounds great to us!
