3 Tools at the Office That Can Help You Make A Positive Change

You spend a large majority of time at the office. So here are three little tools at your fingertips that can help you stay on track and complete your goals.

  1. Positively Use Your Password. You have to change your password every 60 days so why not make it meaningful! Think about the top thing in your life that you’re trying to change. Maybe it’s “walkmore22” or “eatveggies33”, or if you’re working too much “gohome530”. Whatever you decide is your top goal at the moment can become your password. I would caution to only use positive thoughts, you’ll be typing this everyday!

  1. Find an Ally: Your support at work can be just as important as the support at home. Tell someone you trust what you’re trying to do and see if they want to help. If you’re trying to walk more at work, going with a friend works because you can hold each other accountable for lacing up the walking shoes and going outside. If you go vegan, maybe your meat-eating co-workers could be on the lookout for recipes.

If you make an ally at work, they may just send you awesome
vegan treats while you're traveling on business.

  1. Make an appointment: Whether it’s on your outlook calendar or your iPhone, making a reoccurring appointment can help you reach your goal. Seriously, if you’re hunched over a computer for the majority of the day and you can’t remember to stretch, a reoccurring appointment will remind you. If you feel self-conscious about placing an appointment on a public calendar, just designate it as private so that your co-workers can’t see the details.
Humans are creatures of habit. Have you ever seen Sidney Crosby or Cristiano Ronaldo practice? Neither have I. But I’m sure it's a whole lot of doing the same thing over and over. Which makes the action become second nature. You can train yourself to drink more water or eat more veggies, you just have to use the tools at your fingertips.

  1. I know that this might not be proper, but I am very desperate and I just am needing to reach out to the blogging community. Please read this blog-the second issue addressed-to understand.
