In a recent Cpl survey, we asked ‘what’s your main source of happiness at work?’ Over 28% of people listed good colleagues as their number one source of happiness, closely followed by meaningful work.

Being around good people who share the same vision as you is a great base for career fulfilment, but even if you have a work best friend some days being positive and upbeat can still be a challenge.

With that in mind we’ve collected 5 simple ways to be happier at work every day – even if you’re having a bad day, faced with a challenge or your favourite colleagues are out of office. Pick one, incorporate it into your day and see if it makes a difference for the better.
