Staying Motivated After Eight Hours on the Computer

Jul 11, 2008
Do you have a job that requires you to be at the computer eight hours a day? To many people this sounds like a dream job, but when you work on the computer all day every day it can become tedious. Not only do you get bored of the same surroundings, you simply feel bored of sitting in front of the computer doing the same thing. When you sit in front of the computer for eight hours a day it can also cause your body to become quite uncomfortable, causing eye strain, neck and back pain, and even headaches. Those that work on the computer for eight hours a day really do need things to keep them motivated to stay sitting and to stay on task.

Motivation After Hours on the Computer

It can be hard to stay motivated when you work on the computer, but it doesn't have to be impossible. You need to start small by coming to the computer with a great attitude every day. When you come to the computer with a can-do attitude you will find that your workdays go by a lot faster. If you come in thinking that you cannot possibly handle another day sitting in the same place, doing the same thing, this is not going to get you anywhere; in fact it will make your day go by a lot more slowly instead of faster and in a more positive manner.

You should also make every attempt to make your area more comfortable. Make sure that your keyboard is at the right height and that all of the tools that you need are within reach so that you don't have to strain to reach anything that you need. Another thing that you should do to make your work day more enjoyable is make sure that you have a comfortable chair. Even if you have to go out and purchase your own chair and bring it into the office, do it! The right chair really can make all the difference. Also, play around with different types of keyboards, because this can also make a difference in how enjoyable and comfortable you are throughout the workday.

When you have done this you should also make sure that your area is pleasant to be in. If you are able, add some pictures of your family members, friends, and things such as calendars that will allow you to infuse a bit your own personality into your space. This can make the area more inspirational and therefore give you the motivation that you need to get through each workday.

Using motivational wallpapers will really help you get through your long days in front of the computer. These are desktop wallpapers that you can download to your computer to keep you motivated when nothing with. These wallpapers can be pictures, phrases, or a combination of the two. You can use them to help remind you why you are sticking with it or just to give you some peace of mind on those tough days. Motivation wallpapers are often free of charge, so when you find that one doesn't work for you, you can easily get another that will inspire you to get through your days at your computer desk.
