If you’re the office manager or are otherwise involved with keeping the workplace clean, you might want to have a 2022 that’s at least a little less stressful than 2021 was. With that in mind, we’d like to share the follow stress reduction resolutions that might just make your life a little more wonderful.
Stress Busting Resolution #1: A Little Greenery Goes a Long Way
Surprisingly, adding green plants to the workplace has been proven to lower stress levels and boost employee mood and morale. They don’t even have to be great plants. Regular foliage plants that have no flower or scent have just as much impact as expensive botanicals, so don’t feel like you have to spend a fortune. Add some greenery to the workplace this year.
Stress Busting Resolution #2: Delegate to Trusted Professionals
Simplify your life for finding a reliable vendor for professional services. A great example is janitorial service. You want the peace of mind that comes with knowing the workplace is cleaned regularly, professionally, and to the highest standard each and every time it’s meant to be cleaned. Choosing a third party vendor for janitorial services means you don’t have to worry about hiring and supervising an employee, paying any benefits, purchasing cleaning equipment or supplies, and any number of other expenses. Smart and simple.
Stress Busting Resolution #3: Schedule Deep Cleanings Quarterly in Advance
At the beginning of the year, work with your Boston janitorial company to schedule quarterly deep cleanings, carpet cleanings, floor care and other routine maintenance tasks in advance. Devoting an hour to booking these cleanings at the beginning of the year means you don’t have to think about it again until next December – talk about a stress buster!
Other ways to help manage stress effectively include regular exercise and taking time away from the job to focus on your own interests.
