HOW TO WINTERIZE YOUR WORK TO STAY MOTIVATED
When the first snow falls and you’re preparing for the holidays, winter seems like a magical wonderland. But at some point, the novelty wears off. The holidays are over, the days are shorter, the weather is colder. Sooner or later, winter gets to you. The last thing you feel like doing when it’s 20 degrees and a blizzard is predicted, is drive to work.
People who work outside the home have to layer themselves in synthetics, scrape the ice off the car windshield, leave earlier than usual and pray traffic doesn’t bring the morning commute to a screeching halt.
Your house can become a bunker. Try not to hole up. Join a club, volunteer at the kids’ school, have lunch with friends – anything that breaks up the routine of being indoors.
Have a dance party in your living room with the kids, join a gym or take a Zumba class. Whatever you decide, be active. Exercise increases endorphins and lifts your mood. Suddenly, that white stuff piling up outdoors doesn’t bother you quite as much.
Work at night and try and get out during the daylight (this is easy when you are a business owner using the Arise platform – you can schedule when you want to work, up to ½ hour increments, 24/7.
Working for yourself is, for many, the ultimate dream. You are comfy at home, while others are riding through darkness after a long day of working in a building flooded with artificial fluorescent lights.
So when those winter blues set in, remember, you’re luckier than most. If you are still schlepping into the office on cold winter days, and looking for a change, consider a career as a business owner using the Arise platform. Register today!
