Part of dealing with change is adjusting your daily routines to the new environment.
After our recent work move to a new building, I noticed that I felt differently about arriving at work. It wasn’t just the usual ‘another work day’ feelings; something felt WRONG in big honking capital letters. I thought it was the mouse-sized cubes, lack of privacy, or the general noise and distraction.
Nope. This week, I finally figured out what it was. And how to fix it. Once I realized it, I was shocked to find this simple change could have such an effect on mood.
It’s a minor adjustment and not really a big deal. Suffice it to say, though, I enjoy arriving at work much more now.
