Socialize at Work: Dr. Brynn's Brain-Based Productivity Boosters
At work, it is all too easy to prioritize work, projects, one's to-do list, and the stress that motivates while de-prioritizing the people you work with.
Research shows that people who 'have friends at work' are happier and more satisfied in their roles, with the work they do, with their employers, and with themselves at work than those who fail to socialize. As it turns out, the human brain processes social information predominantly, loves both satisfying work and productivity, as well as having friends: you know yourself, monotony and social isolation can feel near-torturous.
So this week, to increase your motivation, productivity, and performance at work, carve out time to socialize at work. Make a new friend in your workplace and it might just start feel like a much better place to get things done, ultimately.
This week's #mondaymotivation post in honor of my late Grandfather Winegard: a great worker, socializer, friend, mentor, and kidder right to the very end of his 94 illustrious years.
