Summer is gone and we’re well into fall, and it is the perfect time to start pulling all the stops to shine at work. After all, December is fast approaching, and it’s your last chance to attain certain goals you set for yourself before the year-end.
Before you start cranking up your productivity, read this guide to see the many savvy moves you should make this fall.
Freshen Up Your Morning Routine
Sometimes you just need to change up your morning routine, and fall is a great time to do so. Wake up a little earlier to have more time to yourself to calm your mind before work. And remember, don’t start checking your phone and emails right after you get up. Give yourself at least a 10-to-15-minute break from technology once you wake up.
It’s also important to do some prep the night before—preparing what documents you’re bringing to work, choosing your work outfit, checking your schedule—so you’re not stressing yourself out the next morning by trying to beat the clock to catch the next train.
Get a Flu Shot
To make it through the last stretch of the year, you need to be in optimum health. Make sure you’re eating right and not overworking yourself.
Be sure to get a flu shot if you haven’t already. It takes about two weeks for the vaccine to start protecting you from the flu so get it as soon as you can.
Check to see if you can get it through your employer, your doctor with your health insurance, and pharmacies like CVS and Rite Aid. You can even get it at superstores like Costco and Walmart.
