Most people feel the same way with the approach of Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year – excited. These holidays get people excited in different ways. Some look forward to seeing family and celebrating the year-end with friends, or others put football championship play at the center of their life for a few weeks.
After the rush of the holidays, the colder temperatures, shorter days, and settling back into the same old work routine can bring about the blues.
Your staff’s mood has a direct impact on your company’s productivity and performance. In our experience, taking steps to promote positivity after the New Year has a tremendous impact.
From sharing positive thinking quotes to scheduling a motivation session, you can do a lot to restore the right mindset in your work environment.
Seasonal Blues Can Dampen Productivity
People who routinely feel down during the winter show similar symptoms. These include lower energy levels, oversleeping, appetite changes, and more. If these issues persist long enough, they can cause health and well-being issues.
Injections of Positivity Can Help
Some of the sagest thoughts about positive thinking came from a man whom history strongly suspects suffered from depression. Many of Winston Churchill’s quotes end up on inspirational memes and motivational posters, including these gems:
• Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.
• The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty
• If you are going through Hell, keep going.
It often helps to know that even heroes like Churchill had to overcome personal challenges. Hall of Fame quarterback and four-time Super Bowl winner Terry Bradshaw has shared his own struggles for years. He once explained that society does not “want its heroes to have these issues, but unfortunately, they do.”
Despite that, or maybe because of it, Bradshaw understands that we need to build positive attitudes and ideals. He once said “humor is the foundation of life,” but also that “bad attitudes will ruin your team.”
As an owner, supervisor, or team leader, morale is part of your job. Keeping an upbeat attitude yourself, providing extra little perks to pick up your staff and other tactics can get many teams back on track.
