Busy TAA People: TAA Member Angelica Ribeiro Authors New Book on How to Create Happiness at Work

How to Create Happiness at WorkAngelica RibeiroTAA member Angelica Ribeiro, Ph.D. recently authored a new nonfiction book, How to Create Happiness at Work: Seven Evidence-Based Strategies to Enjoy Your Day (Kindle Direct Publishing, March 2024).

Based on scientific evidence and her own journey toward happiness in the workplace, Ribeiro shows how to create happiness at work, especially if we have experiences such as too much sitting, too little movement, too much time stuck in traffic, too little time building positive habits, too many tasks to do, too few hours of sleep, too much computer work, and too few social interactions.

Combining storytelling and science, Ribeiro shares how we can transform such experiences into happiness strategies, including making time to move, building positive habits during traffic, and creating social connections at work. By following these happiness strategies, it helps us increase our happiness even if we have a busy work life. Nobody is happy all the time. But consciously working toward happiness at work increases how often we feel joy and helps us feel happier a lot more than one-third of our lives.
