What play at work? You betcha! Not only will you have more fun, but you will likely increase your productivity.
Despite what many people think, cultivating a fun and playful atmosphere at the office can increase your productivity. Think of the times that you have been engaged in a task that you really enjoy- the times seems to fly by doesn't it? When we enjoy what we are doing we tend to work more efficiently and effectively. Research shows that having fun at work can reduce the negative effects of stress and reduce burnout.
Be creative! There are many ways to incorporate play at work. You will likely have to think outside the box because many people have been conditioned to believe that play and work do not go together.
You don't even have to change much about WHAT you do at work, but is is important to change HOW you do it! Adopt a playful attitude and then let your creativity run wild as you dream up new ways to have fun at work!
