There are many things that you cannot change in your job, but here I show you 5 ways to improve your attitude and increase your energy so that you have more focus at work.
This is a topic that is studied by many successful companies. While there are companies that seek to squeeze their workers, those that seek success, realize that a routine work life, where employees feel tired, overwhelmed and unmotivated, leads to very severe economic losses and even guarantees a resounding failure in the business.
Nowadays it is very common to find men and women who work no matter where they do it, or what their job is, as they must contribute to family expenses at any cost. On some occasions people have experienced (and I bet you have too), a lack of motivation and interest, because they have apathy towards obligations and responsibilities at work, not because they do not like it but because it is monotonous and routine for them. If you are going through this situation and you think that the smile and the joy of going to your work every day have disappeared, surely you need to make small changes like what I propose below:
1. Order and decorate your workspace
Give your space a touch of your personality, decorate with flowers, plants, photographs, hang pictures, poems or paint the walls and even, if you can, move and rearrange the furniture in your office once a month. So you will have a place that will be totally to your liking, with balance and a pleasant atmosphere. These small changes will help you release stress, improve your performance and efficiency of your work processes and as a consequence stimulate your creativity and attention at work. With this, you will surely be able to concentrate better. Keep your workplace always clean, tidy and smelling pleasant.
2. Change your diet and place
Without a doubt, to break and change with the routine at work, food is essential: give healthy variety to your diet, include food prepared at home that will remind you of your home and break your routine. If you usually eat inside the place where you work, I recommend you continually change where you are to eat. If you choose a different place, every day you will change the environment and that will relax your mind.

3. Change where you see your classmates
I do not mean that you forget about your responsibilities in the workplace, to talk with your colleagues, no. But what you can do to live with them more and give yourself some breaks to break with the routine in which you are immersed, is to live with them outside of work hours.
This will motivate you every day, as you will learn by meeting them in other more proactive and open environments outside of work. Organize a dinner, go out to have fun, to the movies, to the theater, etc. You will find a new way of looking at work, through healthy external coexistence with colleagues who work there.
4. Change inactivity for activation
If you spend most of your time at work sitting in front of the computer or, on the contrary, you are standing all the time, you should learn to take breaks to rest and relax. This will allow you to refocus your attention and concentration. If your job allows it, go for a ten minute walk doing some kind of exercise (stretching your body, going up and down stairs, walking around the office or the gardens around).
5. Change your schedules
If you are used to doing the same work routine every day, a good idea is to give variety to your responsibilities, you can work by objectives, by priorities or simply change the order of what you do every morning. Change your schedules, but not your responsibilities.
