Most working people tend to spend at least 8 hours a day working. That equates to 40 hours a week; and around 2080 hours a year. You will spend at least half your life working therefore job satisfaction is extremely important.

When you are unhappy at work it will often spill over into other areas of your life such as your relationship with your partner and family time. Life is too short to be unhappy and so it is worth your while to correct problems with people at work or in extreme cases to find employment elsewhere.

Conversely when you are happy with your occupation, your general levels of happiness will be much higher. When you are fulfilled in your job your willingness to become engaged in your work is also greater and collectively this is better for any organization.

Here are some tips to being happier at work:

Produce more: When you get into production and get lots done its feels good. People who dodge work or are trying to get out of doing things are often not happy and under stress from fear of being found out.

Take time off: Many people work continuously without taking time off. Taking days off will give you time to recover and recharge so you can be ready to take on the next challenge or more work. Being burnt out from over working never helped anybody.

Avoid Negativity: Being happy at work means avoiding negative gossip and conversations. Even when you are in a great state of mind negative people can find a way to bring you down so best you stay away from them.

Create the occupation you desire: I’m not suggesting you to leave your current job and everything will be fine, but start little courses, enrolling and studying part-time, or participating in events or visiting places related to your desired career. This will kick start and boost your confidence in creating your desired purpose and this will enable you to go out there and start the career you always wanted.
