We all have bad days where we really don’t feel like being happy in the office or making an effort to be nice to everyone.
However tempting it may be to rant to your colleagues or adopt a sulky attitude, using negative words can actually make you feel worse.
Making an effort to be happy and engage in conversation using joyful, positive vocabulary, however will help lift your mood, perk up the office and make you more enthusiastic for the day ahead.
This word conveys a positive attitude and a positive mind, and thus saying it will instantly make you feel happier and more proactive. Communicating it to a colleague will also help boost your confidence – particularly in your ambitions and your job.
Using this word when agreeing with a plan or idea – particularly as a single word response – is a great way to spread good feeling and encourage synergy between you and another person. Furthermore, the sound of ‘perfect’ when it is said is in itself very uplifting.
‘Relishing the opportunity’ to get involved in a project or task at work immediately suggests enthusiasm and commitment. People who ‘relish’ tend to be happy with life in general and are likely to embrace everything that comes their way.
Joyful- which means ‘full of joy’ – conveys feelings of happiness directly, and thus could really help improve your mood if you say it. It will also encourage people around you to feel uplifted and more positive, which in turn will make you feel better.
If it is your career that is making you unhappy and dissatisfied in the office you could benefit from speaking to a life coach. For more information, please see our career page.
