If you’re not yet ready to quit your job or start looking for a new one, there is hope. Changing the way you think about your job can make a world of difference. 

If you’re happier in your job, you’ll be more creative, more engaged, resilient, and interested. 

Here’s how to become happier at work: 

Practice Being Grateful 

Take a few minutes out of your day to think about what you’re grateful for. Write two to three things down so you can see them in front of you. When you take time to do this each day it will become easier over time. Eventually, you will start to automatically notice things that you’re grateful for. 

Be Kind 

Send an email to someone that compliments them or encourages them. Tell someone you like their outfit or that you appreciate what they do. These small acts of kindness can help them to feel good. When you make someone else feel good, you feel good. 

Enjoy Some Fresh Air 

A ten to fifteen-minute walk every day can help you to feel much more productive. Walk at a brisk pace and you’ll begin to feel more energetic. When you’re out and about, briefly focus on the flowers, grass, and trees that you come across. Doing this will help you to de-stress. 

Remove the Clutter From Your Desk 

If you have a messy desk it can have a negative impact on your stress and anxiety levels. Remove any clutter from your desk so that you have a chance to be more productive. A tidier desk can be less distracting and it tends to look much nicer. 

Put a Plant Nearby

Having plants in the workplace has been shown to reduce stress. As humans, we’re supposed to be surrounded by greenery. Plants can help to improve productivity and concentration as well as air quality. 

There is support for work-related stress in Selby. You can ask for help from your doctor, mental health charities, and organisations.
