7 Proven tactics that will make you happy at workplace

Try these 7 proven tactics that will make you happy at workplace.

1. Have a Sense of Meaning

Employees who know how their work has a meaningful, positive impact on others are not just happier than those who don’t; they are vastly more productive, too. Find something in the mundane to give you meaning,

2. Create an ‘Office Nest’

Since you spend so much time at work, if you want to improve your happiness there you should “make your space your own, decorate your area as much as your company policy permits, and make yourself as comfortable and relaxed as you can be in your office.

3. Find a Work Best Friend

Having a best friend at work can turn a moderately engaged worker into a highly engaged worker. When workers are engaged in friendships they contribute more to the bottom line.

4. Smile

Something as simple as smiling can improve your happiness at work because it tells your brain to be more happy–thanks to the release of neuropeptides.. Smiling is also contagious and will make your co-workers smile as well.

5. Say ‘Thank You’

Based on experiments from Harvard Business School, “receiving expressions of gratitude makes us feel a heightened sense of self-worth, and that in turn triggers other helpful behaviors toward both the person we are helping and other people that are around us, too.

6. Take a Breather

It’s incredibly easy to get burned out during the workday. That’s why you need to take a minute and breath before moving on to your next task. Without some breathing space in the face of constant demands, we won’t be creative, competent, or cheerful. We won’t get along with others as well, and we won’t take criticism without the possibility of imploding. It is a must to control the level of our daily stress.

7. Reward Yourself

Whether it’s by going out to dinner with your significant other, purchasing a new gadget, enjoying something sweet, or giving yourself a pat on the back, find the time to reward yourself after you’ve completed a project or had a fruitful day.

I hope that these tips give you some food for thought. So many of us are scrambling to find happy just try one or two and see if they make a difference to your day,,,in any way!
