Happiness At The Office: #lifehacks at the workplace



Considering many of us spend the largest portion of our day at the office, Gretchen Rubin, author of The New York Times bestseller The Happiness Project , knows a little thing or two about making our days at the desk happier. The biggest component to a cheery workday is how fulfilled you feel at your job, however there are many little things that even those of us with dream jobs can do to keep us smiling throughout the day.

Gretchen suggests:

4. Think about how your space could be more pleasant. Could you invest in some desk accessories to help stay organized? Could you replace that hideous lamp?

8. Try never say “yes” on the phone; instead, say, “I’ll get back to you.” When you’re actually speaking to someone, the desire to be accommodating is very strong, and can lead you to say “yes” without enough consideration.

17. This may be the hardest: control the cubicle in your pocket, so you don’t feel distracted and hunted. Turn off your email; turn off your phone; disconnect from the internet; figure out a way to set limits so you can concentrate when you need to, and disengage when you need to. Technology is a good servant but a bad master.

Read the rest of Gretchen’s tips here – and remember, make your whole body happy wherever you are!
