8 ways to stay happy at work

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