Be Grateful

Remember that shiny-eyed enthusiasm that you felt during your first day on the job? Rekindle some of that excitement by recalling the specific things that you looked forward to. Research published in the journal Academy of Management Perspectives shows that reflecting on how your work is meaningful and brings you joy is linked to higher levels of workplace vitality. Jot down a list of your recent accomplishments and the responsibilities that you enjoy, and reflect on these when you’re feeling overwhelmed. This exercise in gratitude can give you some much-needed perspective.
