    As much as we LOVE our own particular daily grinds, having to go to work every single day, week in and week out, can occasionally feel a bit challenging. Yes, even your dream job, on a rough day, can feel like a struggle.

    We all have our ruts, those deep valleys of boredom when the world just feels dull. Meetings feel longer, mornings feel harder, and putting out all of the mini fires that pop up during the day starts to take its toll.

Ahead, the secrets to happiness at work. Whether you mostly love your job or are actively looking for a new one, these tips and tricks should make your daily grind just a bit more fun.
