Career Wednesday: What to do on a Slow Day at Work


For the past two weeks it’s been slow in my department. If there was any work to be done it was completed in small increments, like half an hour. What my coworkers and I did to pass the time was talk to one another. (That wasn’t, and still isn’t, a bad thing.)

I realized that you can only talk to someone for so long before you run out of things to talk about, so I followed a coworkers lead and brought a book to read during long stretches of doing nothing. I figured that slow days were going to be perfect for catching up on reading, and thankfully I’m right. Once there’s a lull in the day I’m reading my book.

I also Googled ‘things to do on a slow day at work’ and came upon quite a few articles with suggestions, like this one. I like all of the tips, especially the learning one because I’m a big fan of education and just learning stuff for the sake of learning is great.

What do you do during a slow day at work? Let me know in the comments!
