How can I be happier at work?
I know that I’ve asked myself that question before!
Stress, overworking even a disagreement with a co-worker can all lead to you feeling unhappy at work.
When pressing either red or green at the end of the work day, you make a decision and reflect on the day’s events.
This can help you pinpoint those events that led to your decision and helps you think about what would make your day better.
The importance of being happy at work
A great workplace is everybody’s job.
While you’ll probably bring some feedback to your manager, there will probably be lots of things you can change yourself to make yourself a bit happier at work.
For instance, if it makes you unhappy when you feel unproductive, consider what you can do or change yourself.
What do you have the power to change?
Perhaps it’s as simple as grabbing a pair of noise reducing earphones or maybe you need to rethink how you organize your day and prioritize tasks.
These are issues you can change in your own environment and they can help you be happier at work.
There will most likely also be issues that boil down to structural patterns in your company, lack of leadership, etc.

Are they happy at work or unhappy?
What emotions do you carry with you as you leave work? Or when you enter your workplace in the morning?
