10 Simple Ways to be Happy at Work

I Love My Job

Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best. - Theodore Isaac Rubin

There is no need to pursue  happiness at work. It comes naturally to you when you possess the right mental attitude and do the right things at the right time.    

1.     Organized: The world is in your hand when you are prepared. Get ready a to-do list before you start a new day. When you prioritize your work according to your list you are ready to tackle the first important task in the morning with full force.

A tidy desk with a pot of plant on your desk will calm you mind and allow you to work with focus. According to an article, Plants in offices increase happiness and productivity, "What was important was that everybody could see a plant from their desk. If you are working in an environment where there's something to get you psychologically engaged you are happier and you work better," said Dr Chris Knight   from Exeter University.

2.     Start early: You are ahead of others in getting things done in the shortest possible time because you will be able to work mindfully without disturbances and interruption. Upon the arrival of other staff, you are ready to take a well-deserved break.

3.     Care of your body: Do you go to bed early so that you can get up early to greet a new day with energy? Are you following a healthy lifestyle such as a balanced diet and drinking enough water while at work? Are you thinking right to boost your confidence?  Happiness is a healthy body and a healthy mind.

4.     Be passionate: Do you enjoy what you do? Develop an interest in your work and work with your heart. It is a sure way to be  happy at work.

You do your best work if you do a job that makes you happy. - Bob Ross

5.     Flow experience: When you are passionate about your work, it is no longer work to you.  You will immerse in what you do and forget about the passage of time.

6.    Be productive: You are productive when you are efficient and effective. You think of better ways of getting things done by getting creative.  An aha moment is the greatest joy of all at work.

7.     Be positive: Wear a smile, walk with confidence and dress smartly. When you are looking good you feel good inside and out. Be friendly and helpful so that you inspire others and project a positive image.  

8.     Learn: Learning is a pleasurable experience. You gain more knowledge and keep yourself up-to-date. Reading sharpens your mind to face challenges in life resourcefully.   

9.      Expand your comfort zone: You will be more comfortable when you solve more problems at work. Do more and help others to be more competent at work.   

                 All happiness depends on courage and work. - HonorĂ© de Balzac

10.         Gratitude and appreciation: Be grateful that you are trusted at work. Show an appreciation of keeping your job. You walk tall because you are gainfully employed and enjoying financial well-being.  

The best way to appreciate your job is to imagine yourself without one - Oscar Wilde

Think right, do right and be happy at work.
