We’re always banging on about work/life balance these days. Flexible working, benefits, leaving work on time etc. and how that will lead to a happy life, but for some work and life go hand-in-hand.
Obviously having a job that you’re passionate about will lead to a happy work life, for some salary is the box that needs checking here, but for most it would be a job that holds your interest and passion.
However, having a WBFF (Workplace Best Friend Forever) is apparently the key to achieving happiness. Someone who will not only listen to your daily moans and groans, but someone who you will also go out to lunch with…or even the pub. If you don’t have one then go now and get one! Put yourself out there and invite someone to go with you when you go and get your sandwich and get yourself to the stage when you’re not only talking about your bad day but also about your hobbies and life outside of the meeting room walls.
