Feeling Bored at Work? Here Are 10 Productive Things To Do

It’s not uncommon to feel bored at work. Most of us fall into a routine where one day blends into the next. 

10 Productive Things To Do When You’re Bored at Work

1. Clean-Up & Organize

You probably already use some of your downtimes each day to tidy your workspace. But there’s more to cleaning up and organizing than just wiping down your computer and stacking your paperwork into a neat pile. 

2. Review Your Employee Paperwork

When you first got hired, your boss likely bombarded you with the various new hire paperwork associated with your job. And chances are good you only skimmed a lot of it intending to take a better look at it once you settled in. 

3. Research Your Industry

Staying up to date with your industry is a smart way to give yourself a competitive advantage. It also can help you figure out if you want to continue down this career path or if it’s time for you to make a career change and move on to something else.

4. Update your Credentials & Accomplishments

If you are considering applying for another job, your resume and professional profiles need to be up to date. But it certainly doesn’t hurt to keep them updated, even if you are happy with your current situation.  

5. Network

Networking is an essential part of every career path. It gives you the chance to learn and share ideas, improve your confidence, and develop professional relationships. Sometimes it’s all about who you know and not what you know. 

6. Do Your Job, But Better

Be honest. Are you bored, or is this really procrastination? One of the most productive things to do when you are bored at work is to do your job – but do it better.
