Is having fun at work important? Short answer: Yes!

Research suggests that fun has a positive impact 💪🏽 on employee engagement, creativity, and retention. So, how what about making it part of your summer workday? Here are some 💥easy ideas to experiment with!

  • Gamify your to-do list. As soon as you finish a task, reward 😍 yourself with something you like — take a walk, call a friend, or buy yourself a treat.

  • Mix things up. Making simple changes can give you a fresh 🎠perspective. Here’s an idea: try putting challenging work tasks on post-it notes that you can squish them into balls 🕶️🏐and toss in the trash when you’re done.

  • Create a soundtrack to match your workday. Build different playlists for different types of tasks. Matching your energy and rhythm 🏝️to the music is for many an effective way to build some positive momentum throughout the day. Brain science confirms this too.

  • Vary your location. 🙂 Are things starting to feel boring? Head over to your favorite coffee shop to finish your workday — or better yet, take your next phone call on a walk for a “walk n’ talk”. A temporary relocation can be restorative, rejuvenating, and, enjoyable.

  • Celebrate “National Fun at Work Day”🥳 as a dedicated day to boost your moral, raise engagement and have fun with your team. Officially this “holiday” celebrated on April first.
