Real Simple Magazine (October 2008) notes that, “Researchers at Texas State University, in San Marcos found that people who had a plant in their offices rated themselves as more satisfied with life and work than did those without them.”
So, if you notice a lot of new plants at work this month, you’ll know why!
- “Keep things in perspective.”
- “Recognize the possibility of happiness.”
- “Change your focus.”
- “Surround yourself with happy people…”
- “Accept reality.”
- “Do the best you can.”
- “Take a break.”
- “Take control.”
- “Be honest with yourself.”
