With Spring finally arriving, to-do lists are on everyone's minds. Whether it’s cleaning your house, yard work, or career improvements, we're all looking to accomplish something this Spring. Unsure where to start? Check out some of our go-to Spring to-do's below.
Spring cleaning is on everyone's mind when the days start to get longer and the temperature rises. While many of us will do some cleaning at our houses, how many will do that at their office? Considering we spend nearly as much time at work as we do at home, giving it a little spruce can have more benefits besides catching those dust bunnies behind your computer. Take some time this spring to give your workspace a quick clean with these tips.
At the start of the year, many of us set career goals for the year. Take some time this Spring to review that list, see where you're at, and figure out if any of your goals have changed. By setting these goals and reviewing them regularly, you can keep yourself accountable and make sure you know what you are working towards. Learn more about setting career goals here.
Another great thing to do this Spring is to reach out to your network. Even if you are not currently job searching, you want to be sure to nurture your connections and keep the relationship mutually beneficial. This can be as simple as a check in email with an article they may find interesting to a coffee date to catch up on each other's careers. Plus, this will keep you top of mind for potential openings they may know of.
While Spring is a great time to check in on your career, don't forget to embrace the nicer weather by having some fun. This can be anything from going on a hike to attending your favorite sporting event; whatever you enjoy doing. By maintaining a good work-life balance and making room for things you enjoy, it will not only benefit your mental health but can also give your career a boost.
Spring is a time of new beginnings and a great time to embrace new things. What's on your Spring to-do list?
