Most of us don’t get to choose whether or not we work, but we do get to choose our levels of happiness at work – and that’s what matters. Those who are happy are up to 12% more productive and higher productivity leads to a healthier work-life balance as well as smoother professional relationships. Whether or not you love your job, use these 5 keys to find happiness in your career.

  1. Recognize your own hard work.

Job dissatisfaction can often come from not feeling like what you do is enough. If this sounds like you, go ahead and give yourself your own affirmation. Rewarding yourself for small wins can help boost self-confidence, increase work engagement, and can help you feel happier.

  1. Be responsible.

As an adult, your emotions and reactions are your responsibility. A happy employee realizes this and takes control of their actions, behavior, efforts, ideas, and motivation. When someone approaches you with a critique or complaint, or you’re having a stressful day, remember that you are in control.

  1. Mindfulness

Mindfulness has become quite the buzzword these days, but it is so much more than that. The positive effects of mindfulness and meditation have been proven over and over again for centuries. Adding even a couple of minutes of mindful meditation to your daily routine will help you to feel more in control of your emotions at work.

  1. Find balanced wellness.

You spend an average of 90,000 hours of your life at work. So, finding a good work-life balance is crucial. If you feel like you have more control over what you do outside of work, you won’t resent the hours you spend at work. Make your health a priority; get good exercise, pay attention to what you eat, spend times with friends, and find a creative outlet. All of the above help you manage stress, which in turn helps you to feel happier – even at work!

  1. Lend a helping hand.

There isn’t a piece of research out there that says that helping others is bad for your health. In fact, they tend to say the opposite. Time and time again, studies show that altruists find a level of happiness that is incomparable to any other sources – in a good way! Try expressing small acts of kindness or gratitude towards those in your office. It’ll make you feel happier, help them feel happier, and they may even return the gesture.

Encouraging Happiness at Work

Whether you’re an employee or an employer finding your own happiness at work and encouraging others is important for your health. If you need a little boost of job satisfaction; try recognizing your own hard work; being responsible for the things you have control over; practicing mindfulness; achieving balanced wellness, and being kind to others.
