How to be happier at work

How to be happier at work

  • Figure out what truly motivates you, how do you define enjoyment, success, and fulfillment.
  • Conduct an energy audit and make changes accordingly. 
  • Take 10-to-15-minute breaks. 
  • Keep a 'smile file'. Keep a running list of your accomplishments, compliments, and thank-you's from real people.
  • Remind yourself of why you like working there.
  • Be disciplined about rest and balance.
  • Don't be 'on' 24/7.
  • Build your network. Develop meaningful relationships with people you admire and respect.
  • Connect your work to your intrinsic values - even if your job does not have a grand purpose, you can live your values.
  • Talk to your boss more often.
  • Discard the idea of 'right' versus 'wrong'.
