Show and Tell At Work Day is a date that can bring us back to childhood. Agree, sometimes being an adult is a bit tiring: there are so many unresolved tasks around that escalate and cause anxiety. Well, find out more about the holiday!
Practice is commonly used in educational moments. When you visually show some object and talk about it, the information is remembered much better. In 1994, scientists proved that such involvement has a positive effect on the digestibility of the material. There is one difference – the specific date is adapted for adults, which means that if you work in an office, it can be used effectively! It is not known exactly when the methods were introduced into life. Perhaps they were popularized by a magazine published since 1954, its name is “Children’s Education”.
Show and Tell At Work Day was founded by Thomas and Ruth Roy – the couple have created many amazing holidays that truly have a soul. The goal is simple: to make a person feel like a child again, have fun and forget about the difficulties for at least 1 day. This is especially beneficial for people who work in active companies almost every day.
How to properly organize your workspace:
- get rid of irritants – usually these are little things that are easy to fix in a couple of minutes. Adjust the chair, remove broken handles, throw away used stickers;
- hide the phone and put it on silent mode – the device distracts from work processes the most;
- do not keep on the table what is not useful to you;
- set a good light. If you are right handed, the lamp should be on the left.
