Your challenge last week was to think of three things you like about your job. If you couldn't think of at least 3 things, you need to either find a new job or find some ways to relieve stress at work.

I suggest the The Office Chair Workout as a way to get your workout in at work or possibly get you fired and into a new job. (Disclaimer-Huntsville Adventure Boot Camp and Joe Martin claim no responsibility for firings and/or office chair related injuries)

This week, it is time to look at you. Are you a source of negativity?

This week pay close attention how you interact with people.

Are you constantly nagging them?

Are you always putting them down?

Do you ever have anything positive to say?

Are you saying things that put them down, just to lift yourself up?

Are you talking behind their back?

This isn't just face to face, it is especially on things like Facebook, text messages, and e-mail. People will write all kinds of horrible things that they would never say to a person's face. Facebook is probably the king of this, especially between "friends".

Simple rule of thumb: if you wouldn't say it to their face, don't put it in electronic form either.

So this week turn the microscope on yourself. Would you want to be treated the way you are treating others? Are you constantly being negative?

It is time to check yourself this week. The great part is that just be by being mindful of your actions, you will treat people better.
