Good mental health is a state of wellbeing and affects job satisfaction and productivity at work. Find out how you can make someone’s day each and every day with these simple ideas…
1. MAKE EYE CONTACT AND SMILE
By putting on a smile, you instantly make yourself more approachable. It’s also been proven that by smiling, you trick your brain into feeling positive yourself.
2. SAY PLEASE AND THANK YOU
There are plenty of opportunities to say please and thank you at work. Show your appreciation and make someone feel good – either by mentioning it directly to them or as a little note.
Start a conversation with someone you’ve never spoken to at work. Not sure what to talk about? Ask them about themselves, find out about their interests outside of work and show a genuine interest in what they’re saying.
Make someone feel heard by taking the time to actually listen to them. Your co-worker will truly appreciate it.
5. ASK FOR ADVISE OR AN OPINION
Not only will you make that person feel appreciated and valued, but you might also get some valuable feedback and a fresh perspective.
6. GIVE SOMEONE A GENUINE COMPLIMENT
From recognising someone’s work to complimenting someone’s actions or looks, it gives them a boost in confidence and motivation.
7. GRAB LUNCH TOGETHER
Why not ask if your work colleague wants to go for lunch together. If you have some time left, go for a short walk to give your mind a nice break from work, and you’ll also feel more productive. No idea where to go? Take a look at Orega’s best walking routes.
8. COFFEE BREAK
Need a caffeine fix? Ask if your colleague would like you to bring them one too or even join you in for a quick coffee break to rest your eyes from staring too long at the computer screen.
9. BRING IN SOME TREATS
Good at baking? Why not surprise your colleagues with a delicious cake or bring in some traditional snacks you brought back from your last holiday?! It’ll definitively brighten up their day!
What are you waiting for? Make someone’s day today!
