BURBANK, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Planting a seed of happiness at the office only takes a single flower.

With lay offs and pay cuts leaving people unhappy with their jobs, it’s important for employees to keep smiling so they don’t lose their job next.

Dr. Joan Marques, an expert of spirituality in the office, says bringing flowers or plants to work can make a huge difference.

Their energy puts people in a better mood, so planting a piece of nature on a desk or giving a flower to a co-worker can make office life easier to bear.

Dr. Marques also recommends keeping a statue, picture, or painting that radiates peaceful vibrations for instant calmness at work.

She explains, “I keep a Buddha on my desk. I’m not even Buddhist, but it brings me peace.”

Disgruntled workers can gaze at her new book, Joy At Work, Work At Joy (Personhood Press), out this summer, for more helpful tips.
