Hey there! I recently wrote a fun post for the music site Tunigo and thought I would share it here with you:

You don’t need a Search Team to find Happiness at Work!Click here to read the full post...
Whether it is a boss who is borderline psycho (OK, hands in the air – who’s had one of those?), a company which doesn’t show its appreciation for your hard work, a co-worker who barely deserves the right to be called a “worker” or the conditions or functions of your work sucking, there are ways you can be happier at work.

Let’s address the first option.
Change your circumstances:

Take 30 quiet minutes away from distractions (I know it may be tough, but figure it out) and do some blue-sky thinking. Temporarily set aside continue »Tags: happiness expert, happy at work, happy bitch, hate co workers, Keryl Pesce, work related stress

If your body could talk, what would it say to you? "Thank you for feeding me healthy foods and exercising me. I feel great. I look great.
