To be happier, spend your time with friends and spend your time doing things that will pay off in the future.

Spend time with the right people. The greatest happiness levels are associated with spending time with people we like. Socially connecting activities — such as hanging out with friends and family — are responsible for the happiest parts of the day.
However, work is also an essential element in the time-happiness relationship. Although spending time with bosses and coworkers tends to be associated with some of the lowest degrees of happiness, two of the biggest predictors of people’s general happiness are whether they have a ‘best friend’ at work and whether they like their boss.
Therefore, people should try to reframe relationships and workplace goals such that colleagues become friends so that time spent at work becomes happier.
In other words, to be happier, spend your time with friends and spend your time doing things that will pay off in the future.
Huh... having a "best friend" at work and liking your boss? I DON'T THINK SO!!! :P
