Be Open to Different Experiences

Your new job might function very differently than what you’re used to. Maybe their rate of productivity is much faster however, they provide consistent breaks to help maintain a certain level of energy that is required from you to provide optimal performance.

Be Yourself

It is fundamental to you and your mental health that you be your authentic self in the workplace. Of course, you are going to adjust a few things to function better at the workplace but you should not compromise who you are at the core of things. Be honest and genuine. For instance, let’s say that you are an introvert but you are met with a highly extroverted environment. This does not mean that you completely change yourself in order to fit in because that will eventually exhaust you. You want to apply long-term thinking as that will benefit you the most. Do not prepare yourself for exhaustion because the goal is to provide optimal performance. 

Get to Know Your Colleagues

Getting to know your environment will definitely help you adjust. Make conversation with your colleagues and understand what their goals are to help you form a direction/path for yourself. Become acquainted with their individuality so you can also feel comfortable enough to introduce your own! This will help increase a sense of genuineness in the workplace.
