A Final Note

There are many reasons why your morale can dip. It can be because of a specific issue or something as broad as the change of the seasons. A few personal “pick-me-ups” might be enough to lift your spirits, but don’t ignore the potential seriousness of a prolonged drop in mood.

Next week, you can explore strategies for staying focused while working in a busy and distracting office environment.

Have a great week!
