Happy at Work Action Day – October 5!
My main gig is helping people relieve stress from their desk, or how to feel better during the work day.
My blogging friend, Karl Staib helps people work happy now.
They are, in my opinion, one in the same. Which is why I love the idea of his upcoming Happy at Work Action Day October 5. When I worked corporate I don’t remember one day where I can say I “worked happy”. I could have used his (and now my own!) advice.
In an effort to help people feel better, be more productive and experience greater satisfaction during the day, I want to help him spread the word. You CAN work happier..check in with Karl to find out how.
Here is what Happy at Work Action Day is all about, in the words of Karl Staib…
I’ve created the Happy at Work Action Day, which will be on October 5th in an effort to make work more fun.
The real reason I created this day was to help people who, like me, need to find some stress relief and happiness in their job. Many employees feel stuck, depressed and tired. No wonder we are losing billions of dollars due to overworked employees. They need to learn how to release all that stress and enjoy one day for all it’s worth. If they can enjoy one day, are sure to be able to find happiness in the next day and the day after that.
I want people to celebrate the fact that they can enjoy their present situation. If it is an eventual career advancement of change that they desire, then finding ways to enjoy themselves now will help them reach their goals in the future. When people are highly confident in their present job, they are more likely to find passion and success in what they do.
The guidelines are simple:
- Celebrate! Throw an office party to celebrate everyone’s accomplishments, both large and small.
- Reward a deserving co-worker or client.
- Reward yourself for a recent accomplishment.
- Take 5 minutes to reflect on the crazy beauty in your life.
People have so much more control than they realize if they only take action.
