Do you greet each day with a groan as soon as you hear the alarm clock? If you hate your job, there are things you can do to make it more manageable. First you have to change your perspective. You have a choice on whether you are going to hate the moments in your day, or have gratitude for them. Learn how to love your job by practicing following:
1. Focus on the people: Invest in the work relationships around you. Shared experiences help you find more common ground with people you might not "click" with naturally. Arrange for an after-work activity or schedule a pizza party with your fellow co-workers. Research has found that even having just one buddy in the office is key to feeling more positive about your job.
2. Leave!: Not your job, just the space you are in. Take a break from the day by getting outside for a 10-minute walk or even a 3 minute stretch break. When you get your body moving it not only improves your productivity but also your happiness.
3. Do what you love: Focus on your strengths and do those things first and last in your work day. Starting your day out by doing something you love will help to keep you engaged in your work and allow you to leave your day feeling energized and more rewarded.
