Lots of people think the pursuit of happiness is a linear process, so they live in a state of expectancy, said Marti MacGibbon. But you can experience happiness in the present moment, without waiting, if you give yourself permission.
To do that, she recommends these tips:
Recognize that happiness is available now: You can do this exercise while taking a coffee break, in the elevator, or in a brief moment in your office, door closed if you need it.
Choose to think positive, self-enhancing thoughts, like I am enthusiastic about my job, rather than, I will be enthusiastic about my job.
Harness the power of the moment to choose happiness: This is not a process of denying the existence of stress at work. Gazette staff
