“Happiness comes when your work and words are of benefit to yourself and others.”—Buddha
“People who are happy in life have an easy time feeling good and recovering from adversity; they have close, supportive social connections; and they believe that their presence in the world matters,” writes Emiliana Simon-Thomas, the science director of Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, on the Greater Good Magazine. Similarly, she defines happiness at work as “feeling an overall sense of enjoyment at work; being able to gracefully handle setbacks; connecting amicably with colleagues, coworkers, clients, and customers; and knowing that your work matters to yourself, your organization, and beyond.”
Several studies have confirmed the strong link between happiness and productivity. In his book, The Happiness Advantage, Shawn Achor mentioned that “we can fully utilize our intellectual powers when we are feeling confident and happy. In a happy state of mind, creative ideas flow in and we are better at problem-solving and decision-making.” Caleb Papineau, director of global marketing at TINYpulse, revealed the following statistics: Happy people are 31% more productive and three times more creative; happiness improves business profitability by 147%; 75% of individuals leave their jobs because they are unhappy with their boss rather...

The American Psychological Association (APA) mentions the following proven benefits of mindfulness to increase well-being and productivity: reduces rumination on past failures and current challenges; reduces stress and anxiety; improves memory; improves focus and cognitive potential; increases emotional control; reduces reactivity; improves relationship satisfaction...
