Some gratitude will take you places

Turn towards meditation

Kindness sometimes seems a big thing to give away but it pays off. Doing good for others at work will allow you to earn goodwill that will come back to you. You don’t have to be over –the – top generous, just be nice to people. Kindness will set you free off all the grudges and stress causing factors.
