By Rachel After a long, brutal winter, spring has officially arrived. Forget the cold, drab days; we now have an extra hour of daylight and the promise of warmer weather. We Bostonians have been taking full advantage of the warm temperatures in the last few weeks. There are noticeably more people lingering outside with newfound energy. So, let's take a moment to positively channel this spring energy into increasing productivity during the workday.
Perform a bit of workplace spring cleaning. Start by tackling your e-mail inbox. Respond to any outstanding messages and file important ones. Next, clean your desk and surrounding area. Papers tend to stack up over time, so sort through these and file necessary papers away. De-clutter any miscellaneous items you have lying around. A clean and clutter-free work area will let you concentrate on tasks.
Dedicate time to brainstorming. Sit down with your team for a group brainstorming session to develop new ideas and get a fresh take on tired ones. Take some time to reevaluate your blog and PR angles, and use this moment as a jumping off point to evaluate your overall approach so far this year.
Go outside. Stop staring out the window and take advantage of the nice weather by going for a walk. Sometimes, taking a break from the office is necessary to clear your head. As this study shows, warm weather can boost your mood, and send you back to the office feeling refreshed.
Spring is a great time to reboot. With an organized desk, new ideas and fresh air you will be focused and motivated to start checking items off your to-do list.
