There is no way around it. Data entry is, at its core, a repetitive task. But that doesn’t mean you have to be miserable at work. In fact, there are plenty of small things you can do to make yourself on the job no matter what it is you do for a living.

Before you let too many bad days get you down, consider these tips to brighten your day and enjoy the time you have at work.

  1. Find out why you’re unhappy.
    The very first step to determining a solution is to figure out why you’re unhappy in the first place. Look at all of the factors from every facet of your life. Then, determine what you can change or improve to help you have a sunnier outlook on your day-to-day life. You may be surprised at how many little things you can alter in your day that will make you feel one thousand times better.
  2. Give back to others.
    Volunteering is good for us. When you work with organizations or individuals in your community, you feel invested and satisfied. And it doesn’t have to be formal. Give back to others on a daily basis. Pitch in when someone needs help. Offer to assist someone in your office or neighborhood to get those good feelings. Pay it forward, too.
  3. Write down accomplishments.
    There are a few ways you can do this, but the idea is to write down everything you’ve done that makes you feel accomplished. Keep a journal at your desk. Whenever you’ve accomplished something, write it down. Or, have a jar nearby and write them down on slips of paper to drop inside. Whenever you’re feeling down, read them back to yourself.
  4. Give up complaining.
    Science has demonstrated that complaining actually alters our brain chemistry and patterns. The more we complain, the more negative we feel overall, even about neutral things. Try to escape the cycle of complaining and train your mind to think more positively about the world around you. When you’re feeling negative, try to find at least one positive thing to concentrate on instead.
  5. Be more thankful.
    Happiness and gratitude go hand in hand. It isn’t just an Oprah platitude. Happy people aren’t thankful, thankful people are happy. The very best part about gratitude is that it is contagious. When you thank someone else, they are far more likely to pass it on to others. You’ll start to notice a far more positive environment if everyone is willing to express their gratitude.
