Being happy is a key to success. If you feel happy, it’s more likely you’re productive, creative, and enthusiastic.
While most people spend around 2/3 of their lives at the office, it’s highly important to stay happy at work as the number of failures here is big. What is more, work-related stress affects your well-being and health.
To make the most out of your career, both personal development and a good income, you need to stay happy at work, and here are three actionable ways how to overcome the work depression:
1. Adapt Your Biorhythms To Day Length
Most successful people claim that waking up earlier in the morning is better for them as they have time to complete more tasks during the day. Although it makes sense, there is another secret insight this idea has: if you adapt your biorhythms to day length, your body produces gonadoliberin (also called Gonadotropin-Releasing-Hormone) and, therefore, you feel better.
2. Look After Yourself
There might be some rules at work when it comes to your appearance. No matter what they are, whether you need to wear a uniform or not, do your best to be satisfied with your outfit. If you like how you look, you feel better. However, looking after yourself can give you even more – it increases the level of endorphins which means being happier.

3. Go In For Sports
Since early childhood, we hear a lot about the importance of sports activities for our health, and we know it for sure. But, going in for sports can reduce a risk of work depression as well. If you want to kill two birds with one stone, organize sports breaks while being at work. A short but intensive workout can boost brain function and creativity. Plus, it distracts you from the work process, so you overcome the work depression.
If you want to find out more information on overcoming the work depression the chemical way, you’re welcome to look through a handy infographic by OmniPapers. It’s scientifically proven that both humans and animals have the same mechanisms on coping with depression, so learning from pets might be beneficial for those people who don’t want to include medical treatment. Rely on nature when it comes to overcoming depression.
