Sure, we all work hard, but why are all of those office building lights still on at 3 am? Your cell phone charger that is plugged in (that is warm even when not charging), the wireless printer that is always on (we see the glowing light) and that computer you never shut down are all offenders in the perpetual energy (and bank account) drain. Unplug, people!
So many of us associate work with drudgery and stress. It does not have to be this way. Our work is our outlet for connection with other people and hopefully it is something that you enjoy doing. We all want to be productive and efficient in our workplaces, but sometimes lack of self care can actually cause ourselves more problems.
Having a workplace that follows the "Life is a game -- play it" motto gives employees another reason to come into the office each day, fully motivated, engaged and satisfied. It is essential to implement these engagement activities to keep happiness high year-round, yielding an increase in the health of the company itself.
