Unclutter your workspace
[deep breath…long silence] GUILTY OR NOT GUILTY? You can pause what you’re doing and give your workspace a score between 1-10. Does your workspace look neat and tidy, or does it seem like you’ve been saving for 30 years to have a massive shredding party?
Remember, everyone, including your colleagues, dislikes a messy workstation; it can impact your relationships with coworkers more than you realize. A cluttered space can be detrimental not just to your work environment and attitude, but also to how your teammates perceive you. Searching for needed items can reduce your productivity and create subliminal stress, affecting both your work and your interactions with others. Remove or file any unnecessary papers.
After cleaning, try to brighten up your space by adding a plant, or a colorful container for pens, clips, and other supplies. Step back and admire all your hard work. Your effort will not only be appreciated by you but also by your coworkers, enhancing your relationships with coworkers. It’s a good feeling, isn’t it? Having a clean and organized space can positively influence your work relationships and contribute to a more harmonious and efficient work environment.
Set a reminder in your calendar to repeat the process every last day of the month if you answered yes. Who knows? You might even inspire an office trend.
Dress for Success
Take a look in the mirror. Is the attire you wear to work appropriate for your office? Has your work attire become laxer since you started working there? Remember, your appearance at the office not only reflects your self-esteem but also plays a significant role in relationships with coworkers. The way you dress can affect the overall image of the workplace and how your colleagues perceive and interact with you. Your appearance contributes to the image of your company and influences the dynamics of your workplace relationships. Maintaining a professional look is crucial if you want to be seen as a professional and respected by your coworkers. Dressing appropriately can enhance your credibility and foster positive relationships within your team.
You’ve probably heard that you should dress for the role of your choice, and not the one you currently have. It’s true! You will not be taken seroiusly by your coworkers or boss if you do not take yourself seriously. Stop dressing as if you’re clinging on to the weekend if you want a management role.
Here’s some good news: It is not necessary to spend a fortune on a professional appearance. Simple wardrobe items and accessories can have a big impact on your appearance, giving you more confidence.
Keep your make-up conservative and tasteful. Looking for some inspiration? Pinterest has endless boards. You can take a cosmetics class from a friend or a department store. You can learn a lot by observing other women who have a look that you admire. By observing and practicing, you can learn a great deal.
Avoid overpowering perfumes and cosmetics as many people have allergies or are sensitive to them.

Do not be known as a slacker at the office. Can you stretch out a 15-minute break to a 30-minute siesta time? You’re unable to complete a task in time but you can post on your favorite social networking site every hour, like clockwork. You are always full of opinions and ideas for others but never follow through on your own.
It is contagious. The slacker mentality spreads like the flu from one person to another, and it affects everyone in the office. You may be able to enjoy some slack, but soon you will find yourself in the same situation.
It is important that all employees are punctual and do their part in the office. It is not just you who will look bad if you are late and slack off, but the entire team. Offer to help a colleague if you see them struggling to complete their work after finishing yours. Imagine how grateful you would be if someone did the same thing for you.
Work with someone who everyone wants to be around! Even when you’re not feeling it, go the extra mile. Cut back on slack and tighten your productivity.
A smile is contagious.
Have you noticed that you smile automatically when someone smiles back at you? It is because the human subconscious is programmed to smile back. Smiling has been linked to happiness and joy. Does it surprise you that smiling can improve your mood, reduce your blood pressure, anxiety, and even help to slow down the aging process? You appear more confident and approachable when you flash your pearly teeth. Next time you look at a stranger or a co-worker you don’t really know, smile rather than looking away. You could make their day!
Try it out with your colleagues. Try to smile at work and in the hallways. A smile can make people feel happy or sad.
Want to make others smile? Try these suggestions:
* Talk about a subject that is close to their hearts. You can bring up their favorite topics, such as pets, children, hobbies or other things.
* Complement them in front another peer.
Thank you for your support.
Share the spotlight
* Tell a client about a coworker.
* Offer to help with some of the workload.
Be kind to others when you least expect it.
A grateful attitude is a natural way to keep a smile on your face and in your heart. Only you can control your attitude. It is important to take care of your car. There is a return on investment.
