    • How to Stay Happy At Work8 Ways
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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! 
    • 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
    • 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
