Personal New Year’s resolutions are great but have you thought of any for the office? Most of us spent almost a third of our lives at work. Positive changes made in the office can effect other aspects of our lives. The start of a new year is the perfect time to focus on what improvements can be made going forward. Here are 5 New Year’s Resolutions for the office.
1. Become More Engaged
If this past year you haven’t been the most engaged worker, don’t fret. You can easily get back on the right track. We have an entire e-book to help you. Share around the office to get others on board too! This should be a top priority resolution because not only will you benefit, everyone around you will too. Your boss will especially appreciate the effort.
2. Eat Right
This is probably one of your personal goals, so why not carry it over to the office? Bring a bagged lunch a few times a week to start. This way, you can pack healthy options instead of ordering out whatever you want. Bringing your lunch will save you money, too! Along with eating right, try to treat the kitchen at work right. Be respectful of coworkers’ items in the fridge. And, of course, clean up after yourself.
3. Go Above And Beyond
The position you hold could potentially grow into something bigger and better. This New Year, push yourself at work. Do the extra projects you wouldn’t normally do. Small tasks will add up fast and make you look like a new and improved employee and possible promotions could be on the horizon for you!
This resolution is a must and you should work on both aspects of communication, speaking and listening! Become more aware of what needs to be addressed and address it! You will feel empowered after a long year of sitting back not contributing. While you’re at it, try to become a more attentive listener.
5. Get Positive
Work on becoming a more uplifting and optimistic worker. It will rub off on others in the office and help with everyone’s mood. Be the positivity that your coworkers need at work. While you make a change for yourself, you’ll be helping others change around you.
Start by really focusing in on a couple of these work New Year’s resolutions, and then cover the rest. And, of course, add your own to the list! Wait and see what the new year will bring to you.

Memorial Day reminds us that summer is close but don’t forget what the true meaning behind the day is! Memorial Day can have different meanings for everyone. Often times, people use this day as a celebration for the arrival of summer. Cookouts, family reunions and a 3-day-weekend are all a blast but they can take away the importance of what the day truly signifies. While you celebrate good food and loved ones, don’t forget to pay your respects to those who have died fighting for our country. Pause, reflect and honor.
