Sometimes, pesky little annoyances can really add up at the office, especially when you’re hustling to get that big project done or close out the month’s orders before the end of the month. The first time you find yourself fumbling in your desk to find a pen or shoving a tangle of cords out of your way, it’s not a big deal, but the third or fourth time in a day can make you want to pull your hair out! But there are some things you can do to take care of those little things that bug you, and a lot of them require little more than stuff you already have lying around the office.
From time to time, people might find that they are sick of their job. But it turns out that sometimes, your job could actually be making you sick. Perfect example: I had a friend in high school who worked in an office on the weekends to save up to buy a car, and she used to complain to me that every day she had to work, she found herself getting headaches and watery eyes while she was there. She joked that maybe she was allergic to work, but it turns out that she might’ve been partially right; it very well could’ve been “sick building syndrome” that she was experiencing, which can cause symptoms like those you get when you have allergies.
Nobody likes to take a sick day off from work, and worse still is being out of sick days and having to go to work anyway, sniffling and sneezing your way through the day. But could your office be what’s giving you that cold in the first place?
