- Make your work space warm & inviting
Personalising your work space, keeping it neat & clean are just some of the ways to make your office more inviting. On your pin board, apart from important numbers and a to-do list, you can put up some inspirational quotes or even a couple of family pictures. Having a small good luck charm, plant or picture of a god on your desk also enhances positivity.
- Be empathetic & warm with co-workers
While its important to maintain office decorum and professionalism at work, it is equally important to develop warm and empathetic relations with your superiors and co-workers. Its important to view your office as a family where there is genuine warmth and care for each other. Always be willing to assist co-workers. This builds a sense of camaraderie and also increases one’s self-worth. Helpful people are valued in an organisation and they in turn savour a deeper sense of joy at work.

The simplest way to practice gratitude is to write down at least one positive at the end of each work day. Its important to live mindfully and to be grateful for everything that is going right at your workplace. At the same time, it’s important not to slip into complacency, but to be proactive about working harder and creating greater value at work.
