How to shake up your work routine
Amy McDonnell, CareerBuilder, talks about how she set about shaking up her work life. She went on a one-week program.
She focused on her commute in the subway. She used to "zone out" staring into space, checking email but this left her feeling more stressed than ever.
Monday: She focused on professional development. She read all those articles on work-life balance that she had saved but not read. She listened to podcasts.
Tuesday: She brushed up on business and news. She got the NYT morning briefing email.
Wednesday: Comedy! She loaded up on comedians on You Tube. If people stared at her cackling, so what.
Thursday: Personal growth was her goal. She bought a book on tidying up. She may also get into eating healthier.
Friday: Reading for pleasure. Novels.
In the end, she felt like she had wasted less time. She may even start learning French.
