The holidays are a happy time for many people. They mean family, a time of giving, good food and drink and an overarching sense of gratitude and love. It’s important to celebrate these things with our friends and family. For some, though, the holidays can be a difficult time – a time that holds fond memories, but in the midst of challenging circumstances. Whatever the case may be, you’ll be spending a lot of time with co-workers in your office environment in the weeks leading up to the New Year. Take some time to sit down across from your ergonomic office furniture with a cup of single-brew coffee and celebrate the meaning of the season with your co-workers. Here are few ways to bring holiday cheer into the workplace:
It’s always helpful to put on a happy face! Our TrueNorth standing desks are sure to put a smile on everyone’s face in your office. Employers who invest in the health and happiness of their employees see higher rates in productivity and overall satisfaction. Positive attitudes are quick to radiate throughout the office, and can encourage others to find the good in the day. Throughout your work day, you interact with many people. Finding opportunities to smile, say hello and wish someone well can go a long way in spreading positivity.
We all know the drill. Thanksgiving lets out, and the desserts start pouring in throughout the month of December. There seems to be no end to pastries, cookies, cakes and eggnog during this season. While some indulgences are to be enjoyed, many employees lament the added calories and heavy dishes. Consider bringing in fresh fruit, hot teas, or ordering out for gourmet salads this holiday season. It’s important to give employees something lighter to snack on as they make their way back to their standing desk.
Lend an Ear
The holiday season can be difficult for many people. Consider finding ways to engage in one-on-one conversations with the people in your office, and take the time to truly listen to those around you. You never know what it might mean to someone to have a chance to talk with you at the office.
The new year involves many new resolutions for people. Encourage your office employees to make doable resolutions that they can keep into the new year. Resolutions revolving around health, exercise, diet and relationships can all be encouraged by and helped along by co-workers. We spend a lot of time throughout the week at our standing desks and in our office environments, and it’s important to work with one another to achieve individual goals.
During this holiday season, don’t forget to practice gratitude. If you already have a motorized sit to stand desk in your office, you are among the luckiest! And nothing brings holiday cheer more than gratitude for the little things.
