  • If you have a break room, consider filling it with toys and games. Coloring books will bring you back to your childhood. A puzzle will take your mind off things. Games are fun too.
  • If you don't have a break room, get some little toys and games and keep them on your desk. You'll be surprised how many people stop for a moment to play with your Silly Putty, shake a snow globe or put the magnetic beard on the man.
  • Consider putting up a bulletin board in a break room or employee lounge. Ask everyone from entry-level employees up to administrators and supervisors to bring in baby pictures. Post the pictures on the board. Everyone will enjoy looking at the photos and laughing at each other. It's fun to guess who's who. It also shows that no matter where anyone is in the hierarchy of the facility, everyone started out as someone's baby.
  • Create a stress-free zone for when employees are feeling burned out. It doesn't have to be a big space -- even just a hallway outside a conference room. Consider putting in a hammock or a lounge chair and perhaps an inflatable palm tree and picture of the ocean.
  • Schedule activities you enjoy in your day and week. Buy one perfect flower, and keep it in your workspace to view. Take a walk outside during a break. Take a mini visualization vacation and go where you want to go, even if it's only for five minutes.
  • Plan a visit to the zoo, the movies, the gym, a spa or a local cafe. Go window-shopping by yourself or with a friend. What's important is having something to look forward to doing after work.

No offense to the lovely ladies on this board but I read that and thought, "no way did a dude write this".

Not that the byline might have given anything away.

Right.  Didn't read it until I had my epiphany.

I always considered rubbing one out at work to be one of those gray areas. So are we considering it really wrong, or just kinda wrong? A reply in the next 10-15 minutes would be appreciated.

I see it as no different than doing it at home while living with your parents.  Just be discrete for everyone's sake.

Having had some first hand experience (so to speak) where a co-worker had seemingly indulged in a little batting practice during work hours I suggested the following sign be posted in the cubicle:

This is a place to drop your guts
Not a place to bust your nuts
So keep it clean and keep it neat
And go some place else to beat your meat

LMAO!!

Reminds me of when I was younger, so a little cleaner version and it has nothing to do with what you are talking about.

If you sprinkle when you tinkle, be a sweety, wipe the seaty!
