How To Treat Yourself When You’ve Been Working Really Hard
As a career girl, your days could be filled with meetings, assignments and other time-consuming tasks. Sometimes you only have a minute for yourself to relax and prepare for your next project. On those days, you better make this one minute more than worth it.
My workload increases everyday, so does my awareness. I know that when I get busier, things can fall through the cracks and I don't want that to happen so I start taking extra steps to make sure it doesn't. The biggest way I do that is by leaving myself reminders in various places to stay focused.
When you work in an office it is important to leave you desk every once in a while. Get up and walk to the coffee corner or even better go outside and get some fresh air.
A great way to relax in between tasks is to take a deep breath. Fill your lungs with oxygen and let go of your previous task. When you let go you can easily focus on a new project. Do this in combination with the previous tip and you feel renewed and ready for the rest of the day.
Give yourself a treat
This could be anything from a piece of chocolate to reading that article you saw in your mail this morning. Give yourself a deadline and treat yourself when you achieved that goal. It will not only make you feel relaxed after rewarding yourself, it can motivate you to deliver a great job within your own set time.
Give yourself a social media break
After you’ve focused for a few hours it is totally okay to give yourself a few minutes watching cat videos or pinning some delicious looking food onto your Pinterest boards. You give your mind a short break from everything so it can reload to focus for another few hours.
