"Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude."

4 Tips For Happiness In The Workplace

Finding true happiness at work doesn’t have anything to do with money. It has more to do with our day-to-day experiences. So if you want to be happy on the job, learn to govern your own experience. Here are four tips for crafting a happy workplace for yourself and your team.


 1. Focus on The Process

Getting good results in any business is great, but you can’t base your happiness on it. Focus on the process rather than the outcome of your achievements. Win or fail, when you focus on the process it’s all about the ride.

―  Carl Rogers


2. Discover Your Passion

Find passion in what you're doing right now. No job is perfect. Sometimes the work load is exhausting. Take a look at how your role in your business makes a difference in the world. Knowing that your contributing to a greater good is something to be passionate about.

3. Lose The Distractions

In today’s world distraction happens as often as blinking. Trying to switch between multiple tasks isn’t a very efficient way to work. By turning off distractions and focusing on one task at a time, your performance will improve.

4. Make Meetings Meaningful

Sometimes the best way to make honest heart felt connections with other people is to have shared experiences.  If the only time you ever see your colleagues is at the weekly meeting the interactions can be somewhat dull.  Try moving the bulk of your meetings to an online discussion then do some fun team building activities when you meet up with your colleagues. How you choose to experience your work day can make all the difference in the world, to you and your team.
