-Get a good night’s sleep. Sleep is an essential thing when it comes to having a good day at work. Getting a good eight hours in is a great way to boost your mood. Studies have shown that getting the perfect amount of sleep will improve your memory, spur creativity, sharpen your attention and even lower your stress levels. Who doesn’t want that?!

How can you achieve the ultimate night of sleep? Follow these three simple steps. First, get to bed at a reasonable hour and do so at the same time every single night. Second, TURN OFF ALL TECHNOLOGY at least an hour before bedtime. (Of course social media never rests and your inbox will continue to grow, but it will be there for you in the morning) Third, if you spend a lot of time thinking about what you have to get done the next day, try making a to-do list to get your thoughts down on paper. If you incorporate these into your nightly routine, a good night’s sleep will be inevitable!

-Wake up with a positive mind set. If you convince yourself that you’re going to have a great day, then it actually increases the chances of it really being a great day. It is much easier to have a productive day if you start every morning with a positive attitude. It will also influence the people around you at work to make their day great, too. How thoughtful of you!

-Listen to your favorite song on the way to work. We all have that one song that we absolutely love. Blast it on your way to work and sing your heart out. It’s a fact that listening to music causes the brain to release dopamine, a feel-good chemical. So, start your day with a smile and some good tunes. Drive carefully and dance like nobody is watching!

-Personalize your work space. To increase your productivity at work you should make your desk attractive and a space that you feel comfortable in. Things like having a plant or pictures of your loved ones, surrounding yourself with your favorite color and pleasant lighting will help you manage stress which enables you to cope with interferences and distractions. Make sure to de-clutter and organize, the last thing you need is a messy desk.

All of these things are under your control, so make an effort to incorporate these things into your life. Most importantly stay positive, work hard, and make it hap
