Does it feel like a 4pm already when it’s barely fifteen minutes since you entered the office? If yes, then it is a sign that you certainly need to take an insight into your job and recreate the possibilities or probably look for a new job that is in best interest for you.
We often take up a job for money but later when reality hits hard, we tend to understand that jobs have to be opted by meticulous research. Burning out of a job is a common thing and in today’s scenario everyone has been a victim of it.
Let me tell you what are the few signs that indicates you need a change:
Your health is deteriorating
If your work is causing you stress then your stress itself could be making you sick. Stress caused due to work is awful both emotionally and physically. If you suffer from problems like sleep apnea, lack of concentration or incessant mood swings, then it’s time you take charge of your job.
Your lifestyle has become slouchy
The way of living defines well-being of a person. If your job has resulted in a sedentary lifestyle which is unproductive and doesn’t involve fecund accomplishments, then it is a sign that you make changes soon as in the longer run it can be very harmful for your welfare.
Your relationships are dwindling
It is incorrect when people suggest that one should choose their careers over their relationships. Always remember, relationships are for life whereas job or career is a part of your life. If you are unable to devote your joyousness or a portion of your time to your credible relationships with fellow mates, then your job is certainly carving a half-baked life for you and that’s not how it should be
You feel tired all the time
A good job is when you don’t feel that it is a job and that’s the only way you can work on the tasks daily. Else, your happy side seems to evade slowly and gradually your lethargic elements wake up from their dormant state and cloak your life.
You have developed a procrastinating attitude
If you have started to put off things for later and postponement has become you your favorite hobby, then you must know that this is a reflection of your job discontentment.
If you can relate to the above mentioned signs, then it is time you have a check on your job. Some of the effective ways you can help yourself is by talking to your senior, introspection, consult a career counselor, undertake situation analysis or simply go on a vacation. It really helps!
