  • The pursuit of happiness in the workplace is a never-ending journey, no matter who you are or what you do for a living.

  • Thankfully, there are many ways to make your workday more pleasant and productive, thereby increasing your chances of happiness.

  • First, figure out what makes you happy at work.

  • Do you enjoy creating something or helping customers?

  • Do you like making a co-worker's day better?

  • Do you find fulfillment in knowing your work has improved the community?

  • Whatever makes you happy, cherish it for as long as possible.

  • On the other hand, if you're unhappy at work, find the source.

  • Is it your job duties, colleagues, customers, or something else?

  • Speak to management to see if changes can be made.

  • Otherwise, things may stay the same.

  • At the same time, ask yourself some honest questions.

  • What type of attitude do you have at work?

  • Are you friendly?

  • Do you complain a lot?

  • Do you do your fair share?

  • Think about it: When you have to deal with an unpleasant person at work, how does it affect your happiness?

  • By changing a negative attitude into a positive one, you can help change the tone of your workplace.

  • One big source of unhappiness is boredom.

  • If you're bored with your duties, look for a new opportunity within your job.

  • Not only could this help you re-engage with your work, but it could lead to something great, like learning a new skill.

  • You spend a lot of time with your co-workers, so do your best to build relationships with them.

  • Yes, the workplace can be filled with conflicting personalities and worldviews, but when work gets difficult, you can rely on each other.

  • Plus, having friends at work can help make your day more fun.

  • Finally, if you leave your job, don't burn bridges.

  • While the thought of telling off people who have wronged you may seem tempting, it will only hurt you in the long run.

  • For instance, your new job may contact your old one in reference to your work history.

  • And you don't want some cathartic insult to come back and haunt you.

  • Leave your job with your head up high and your name in good standing.

  • Happiness is something we're all pursuing.

  • But by being proactive and positive in the workplace, you can make happiness a little easier to find.

The pursuit of happiness in the workplace is a never-ending journey, no matter who you are or what you do for a living.
