It's normal that we tend to get unhappy, tired or simply unmotivated to work every once in a while. As I was browsing the Net lately, I came upon some employees' some quick happy fixes on how to combat a dreary or unmotivated day at the workplace. And here are some of what I found out:

-Have a song for the day and hum it as you leave your house and enter your office. Choose your song of the day and cue it on your Ipod and play it on as you walk your way to work, driving in your car, or riding the elevator up to your office. Work happens best if you start it with a smile.

-Never underestimate the power of chocolates. Eating anything sweet (like chocolates) can help boost your mood. It contains serotonin which is also known as an anti-depressant. So have it on hand when you need a mood-lifter. And don't forget to share some with your workmates and share the happiness in the workplace!

-Have a tea break, have a pause at work. You can buy a glass teapot with an infuser, and you can share your little tea party with colleagues as a way to 'exhale' in between office hours, especially at 3 pm. It's a healthier alternative from a hectic day and it's also a great way to bond with co-workers.

-Take a walk. During your break time, why not get up from your desks and cubicles and take a walk outside your office, in the hallway, or even outside the building? You don't have to linger for long; even a 30-40 minute leisure walk out there can enable you to return to your workstations a renewed and re-energized you!
