When we tested both groups again, four months later, the experimental group still showed significantly higher scores in optimism and life satisfaction.

Help Your Coworkers Of the five activities described above, the most effective may be engaging positively with people in your social support network.
Strong social support correlates with an astonishing number of desirable outcomes.

In a study of 1, students at Harvard that I conducted with Phil Stone and Tal Ben-Shahar, we found that social support was the greatest predictor of happiness during periods of high stress. That study focused on how much social support the students received. But in follow-on research I conducted in March , I found that even more important to sustained happiness and engagement was the amount of social support the students provided.
For example, how often does a student help others when they are overwhelmed with work?
How often does he initiate social interactions on the job? How does social support work in practice as a tool for employee happiness? We educated 11, employees, leaders, and physicians about the impact of social support on the patient experience, and asked them to modify their behavior.

The problem is, people then get stressed-out about being stressed-out.
When I was working with Pfizer in February , I asked senior managers to list the five experiences that most shaped who they are today. Nearly all the experiences they wrote down involved great stress—after all, few people grow on vacation.
Your attitude toward stress can dramatically change how it affects you. In a study Alia Crum, Peter Salovey, and I conducted at UBS in the midst of the banking crisis and massive restructuring, we asked managers to watch one of two videos, the first depicting stress as debilitating to performance and the second detailing the ways in which stress enhances the human brain and body.
And those participants experienced a significant drop in health problems and a significant increase in happiness at work. Stress is an inevitable part of work. Choose one stress that you can control and come up with a small, concrete step you can take to reduce it.
