Ok, I know, tomorrow is Monday and you hate to think about it. Is it your boss? Coworkers drive you crazy? How about your workspace? It could be a little easier to deal with on a Monday morning. I didn’t realize how much a dull, boring workplace could impact your perceptions until I was surrounded by the typical gray cubicle world of Corporate America for several years.
I was lucky, I was allowed to surround myself with family photos, cartoon characters and whatever else tickled my fancy. When I saw this awesome article from the Chief Happiness Officer, I really saw how inspiring it could be if all offices followed these creative ideas and invested a little effort in their workers surroundings. Think of how much simple things like a new paint color, colorful throw rugs, or even some soft background music (instrumental if need be) would change the whole experience at work. Go ahead, ask your boss, it’s worth a try – the worst they can do is say no.
Here is the link. I’m sure you’ll agree this kind of environment could help anyone be more relaxed and creative! http://positivesharing.com/2006/10/10-seeeeeriously-cool-workplaces/
