Imagine going to work every day in a workplace that gives a positive aura. Relaxing and calming, right? Unfortunately, that is not how most of the work environment looks like. Most offices are designed to be stressful that adds up pressure to people working in it. No wonder why a bad working environment does not have employee that stays with them for the long time. In order to break that, it is the right time to start a culture where people would speak more of criticism that encourages, heals and empower rather than those words that destroy, kills and discourage. Words are powerful, we do not know what impact it can give to the society when we do it. In order to start, here are some tips on how to make positive environment through words.
Give some praise
Would it not be empowering when every day, you will hear people telling you that “you look good with your dress” or you are so “intelligent”. Admit it or not, who does not want compliments, you long for it and you tantrums when you feel that your efforts are not appreciated. It feeds the ego of the person that is why you should also be careful with compliments. Anyway, in order to start a habit of spreading a positive vibes, practice yourself to gradually see the good in every person. Our mind trick us to focus on the negative, because society shapes us to be systematic and follow patterns that it has designed. One thing that could help you is by including in your daily task that you should complement an officemate a day. However, we should be careful that our admiration should be genuine and does not include reservation or ‘rider’. Plus, it must have no strings attached!
Talk positive within yourself
Have you talk to yourself in front of the mirror? What are the things that you mostly speak about? Positive or negative? What can you focus to see? Your ugliness or beauties? When you talk with your mind, practice thinking about positive things that could help you solve the negative. This is not an escape to the problem, but a way of thinking a possible solution. Find good aspects in you, reaffirm to yourself about your strength, your achievements or how much you’ve changed in the past.
