Make Work Wonderful

Twinings Infusions have just launched a content portal on Huffington Post all around the theme 'Make Work Wonderful', it is full of articles to help brighten up your working day.  We spend the majority of our waking hours at work, work happiness is crucial to our overall well being.




The portal includes helpful tips such as five quick work mood boosters, taking a break, making a good cup of tea and having a chat with colleagues is what fires me up to tackle the task I have been putting off all day.  Tea really does solve everything!  I work in a small, close knit team who are often spread out around the country so it is good when we get the opportunity to regroup and vent our frustrations to others who understand where we are coming from over a cup of tea. 

Whilst I would never, ever risk a work romance (obviously I am now married so this isn't an option for me anyway!) there have been many office romances on our tv screens for us to get captivated with.  This article looks at 10 classics, my favourite being The Office.  I used to work with someone just like David Brent :-/

Gossiping has such bad press but there really is nothing more cathartic than catching up with friends and having a good old gossip.  The same goes for work and your team mates and this article details 10 reasons why it's good to gossip at work.  The article details several studies including one which  ''argues that “good” gossip is necessary for the good of humanity. “A lot of gossip is driven by concern for others and has positive, social effects,” said Dr Robb Willer"

How do you maintain a good work/life balance?  What do you do to make work wonderful for you and your colleagues?  Twinings Infusion will be adding more content to the portal during the course of this campaign, something I am looking forward to catching up with whilst taking a break at work.  I will be sure to email the most interesting ones to my colleagues!

  4. I am lucky that I get to split my time between working from home and working at the Office - i've got different tactics to make me happier in both. when i'm in the office I love taking a break from the laptop and stopping by the kitchen to make a cup of tea and catch up with the friends I have at work. When i'm at home I love sitting on the balcony to work on summer days, taking some time out to go for a walk or switching the radio on to something cheesy with feel good songs like Heart :) I too love your kettle - I have a retro red kettle and toaster set! xx
