  • 1. How to Stay Happy At Work8 Ways
  • 2. Positive Thinking 
    Focus on the positives - what do you really like about your job?
    Remind yourself of the other positive aspects of your work - your friends and colleagues, for instance
  • 3. Challenge Yourself
    One of the reasons that we can get restless in our job is, quite simply, boredom
    Think about ways in which you could make your role more interesting
    Maybe you could volunteer to mentor new staff
    Spend some time every week shadowing people in other departments to get a broader perspective on the business
    Discuss your ideas with your manager
  • 4. Flexible Working
    If there’s scope for flexibility at work, working from home one day a week could give you more variety
    This is not an excuse to get up late and lie around watching TV all day
    You’ll need to be able to show some output for your time away from the office
  • 5. Learn More
    If you feel you are not being stimulated enough mentally, consider doing some work-related training or a course
    It will give you new insights and help to keep you fresh
    It will be a useful addition to your CV when you are ready to move on
  • 6. Network
    If meeting new people is not already part of your role, find ways to incorporate it
    Meeting people and getting fresh perspectives can help you to keep yourself interested and interesting
    If there don’t seem to be many networking opportunities where you are, create some! – organize a team outing, or arrange for you and your colleagues to meet up with staff from another part of the company
  • 7. Have Some Fun
    That could be as simple as croissants on a Monday morning or a team drink on Friday afternoon. Or it could be a more structured social event
    Your work colleagues don’t have to be your bosom buddies, but you’ll enjoy your working day much more if there’s a bit of humor around
    Just because your work is a serious business doesn’t mean you can’t have fun while you do it! 
  • 8. Improve Your Social Life
    Make an effort to do more interesting things outside of work
    If your working week has no scope for socializing it will have an effect on your overall mood
    Try to fit a couple of social engagements into your week – a dancing class or an art exhibition perhaps
    Having something to look forward to during the week will help to make it more bearable
  • 9. Prioritize Your Workload
    If you find that working for long hours leaves you with no time for fun outside work, you need to tackle this
    Negotiate extensions to deadlines if necessary
    Make yourself leave the office on time at least 3 days a week
    Most of us have times when we’re extremely busy and end up working long hours, but if this is happening routinely, you need to get out of that rut
