It's February so it's LOVE month
It's February, so the inevitable 'Valentines' Day' is nearly on the horizon. While we do love to tell those who are dearest to us that we do indeed love them, it's also been a time for the S3K Group team to reflect on the work we do, and why we really love it!
In recent years there's seemingly been a seizmic shift towards wellness, mental health, importance of human interactions and reducing 'screen time' to improve our happiness. Events provide a huge part of this and people attend events to make memories, create and improve relationships and do better business. But, during LOVE month, we are just reflecting on the fact that we really do love what we do. A recent article published by Forbes talks a little bit about how it is absolutely possible to do something that you truly love, and be successful. Read the article here. Do you agree? We definitely think that if you can make your passion into your work, then you're on to a winner.
But, saying that, we know February can be a drizzly, grey, 'in-betweeny' kind of month for many and not hugely enjoyable. Here are some top tips on keeping energised at work, and continuing that love affair!
Surround yourself with positive, supportive people and weed out anyone who isn't.
At S3K Group we are so proud of our team. It's all about hard work and pulling together during busy times, so a team of people who have a giggle and genuinely want to support each other and go the extra mile to help each other out really helps make the whole working day a joy. We are so lucky to have team of wonderfully enthusiastic, loyal, considerate, staff (a big shout out to you guys - you know who you are.)
Challenge yourself and do something new each day.
Being event professionals, we're often challenged with some odd and tricky requests! This can challenge us to learn on the job and do something different and new. But every time this happens, we use that scenario in future and learn from it; make a suggestion to a client, aid creativity, or make our life easier. Win, win.
Eat well, take time out & take time to exercise when you can.
It is easy to eat all of the cake and work too long when we don't really need to but, we assure you, doing these things regularly and placing importance on 'down time' when you have the opportunity for it gives you more energy and increases enthusiasm and drive. Cycle to work, walk at lunchtime, take your kids out for an impromptu day trip, go for a run, (play netball in the first time in what feels like 1,997 years - yes really), just do it. You'll feel better.
A definite must. Whether it's fiction, non fiction, news, industry press, blog articles, social media. Read something. Every day. End of. But when you're done? Put down your device and revert to point 3.
So to sign off and wish you all a very happy February, here are a few of the projects we've delivered, that we LOVE. Take a look here. Think you could join our lovely little team? Get in touch, we're always on the hunt for new brilliant staff too.
