As organizations demand more and more from their people, time-pressed employees have to scramble to keep up. You may not be able to make the day any longer, but you can replenish your energy. Use these 4 simple ways to help you work smarter and prevent burnout:
Take brief but regular breaks. Step away from your desk every 90 to 120 minutes. Take a walk, get a drink, or just stretch your legs.
Say thank you. Being Positive boosts your energy level. Regularly express appreciation to others.
Reduce interruptions. Perform tasks that need concentration away from phones and e-mail. Instead, designate specific times in your day to respond to messages.
Do what you love. Understand where your strengths lie and what you enjoy doing. Find ways to do more of those things and less of what tires you out.
