Sometimes the routine stress of work can get us to pay our bad ways against the people nearest us: our workmates, although they don’t deserve it.
Surely, most of us have spent a period of time being a bit more stressed than usually at work, and it could be because of a project that failed, or because of a personal situation, or, simply, because we don’t feel as motivated by our job as at the beginning. When this happens, very often, the relationship with workmates can make us tense, and we get to separate from them, when the best would actually be to keep united.
So, why not try to return to the starting point with other kind of activities? Start again getting to know your mates, away from the work environment, finding out about their personal life and/or personal motivations. All these actions can help to recover the mutual confidence and that’s always useful in our daily life.
Searching for activities during the weekend, which don’t mean a long trip and which are easy to organize, could be so effective in order to improve our relationship, especially if our activities are planned for a group and in a natural environment, the opposite of the condition in the office.
For us, nothing better than to go for a stroll through the streets of Barcelona by bicycle to clear up our ideas, feeling free of complications and starting again with our friendships.
