Can you be happy at work?

2009

If you base your judgment on what written across the web, most of the working world is miserable most of the time. Considering that we spend more of our lives at work than anywhere else, that means a lot of very unhappy people around the world.

So can you make yourself happy at your job? This article on About.com suggests that you can.

According to the article, the first thing you need to do is choose to be happy at work. This sounds like a ridiculous thing to say, but it's true. You can decide your mood first thing in the morning. If you determine to be happy, odds are likely you will be happy.

The second tip suggested is to find something you love to do and do one of those things every day. It may not be your job, but if you take time for yourself and do something you love, it can make your entire day brighter.

Third, remember that you can choose your own destiny and the path your career takes. Take classes if you have to, but learn something new and do something that will get you where you want to be.

Much of the tips suggested involve taking charge of your own life and your own career. Rather than letting others tell you what to do and how to behave, take charge of things yourself. By doing that, you put the power back in your hands and can move your life in a direction that will make you happier.
