Now that things in the UK are slowly but surely starting to return to normal (fingers crossed), many of us are about to return to an office environment for the first time in what seems like forever. While some people might be looking forward to it, others have enjoyed spending less time commuting and more time with the family. If you are feeling glum about returning to the office, why not try and put a positive spin on things by considering how you can use it as an opportunity for a fresh start. How can you be the best version of yourself? Read on for some tips on improving your efficiency in the office.

Enhance Your Time Management Skills

It might help you to prepare a priority list at the beginning of each day so that you know what you need to tackle first. When it comes to the big, intimidating tasks, it is a good idea to split them up into smaller chunks so that they’re more manageable and less daunting.


Be sure to take regular breaks away from your screen so that you don’t end up with eye strain and headaches, as that will hinder your productivity. Use short breaks to catch up with your colleagues so that they don’t disturb you whilst you’re in the middle of a task. Taking a break and spending a few minutes meditating works wonders to relieve work stress.


Organise Your Workspace

Being surrounded by clutter is very distracting, and not particularly comfortable. When you return to the office, consider asking your employer if you can invest in some folders and other equipment that will help you keep a tidy and organised workspace.


Eat healthy, Take frequent breaks, Get fresh air

It is important when you are working to take frequent breaks from your pc. Don't drink coffee after coffee, instead take a proper lunch break and eat a healthy lunch. Getting some fresh air helps to clear your mind so a quick walk outside works wonders. Of course if you are venturing outside stay safe, wear a mask, follow social distance rules and always wash your hands. This is important in all cases even if you have had a Covid Jab.

Consider How You Use Technology

Working efficiently isn’t just about your own productivity, it’s also about how you use the technology and other equipment in the office. Are there any areas where you think you might be able to save your employer some money? It might be worth looking up some green printing tips to find out how you can help reduce paper and ink waste at work.

You should also make sure you’re switching off all digital devices properly at the end of each day, rather than leaving them on standby mode. This should reduce your employer’s energy bills so that there is more money in the pot to invest back into the business.
