There’s an old adage saying that you’re not supposed to be happy at work because ‘It’s called work for a reason!” (They even wrote a book about it!) Well, we don’t believe that this is true! After talking to one of our real estate lawyers at the law firm Merlino and Gonzalez, they gave us some great advice on what makes the day go fast and work and how to enjoy it, which I will impart that wisdom onto you!
Find A Work Best Friend – Do you think Merlino and Gonzalez would be partners in a law firm is they weren’t best friends? That might be wishful thinking, but finding that one good work friend can make all the difference. You need at least one friend to bitch too, gossip with, talk bad about the managers with, and work on projects with. When you are having fun at work with your friend, the time will fly by and you will be surprised how much more gets done!
Eat! – A lot of people think that they are so overwhelmed with work that they don’t have time to take a lunch break. Do It Anyway! Sometimes your brain needs to take a break from the stress of work. Go out for a cup of coffee every now and then. Eating a well-balanced lunch that healthy for you and making sure you are drinking water can give you more energy to make it through the afternoon of your job and make you overall happier. Don’t forget to keep snacks on hand for the 3 pm wall. Keeping your blood sugar at a normal level will keep away the cravings!
Move Around – Get up! Get a fit bit and make sure you do your 250 steps. Moving around and giving yourself a mental break and a little physical activity will get your blood flowing and energy levels back up.
How do you stay happy at work?
