If you had to describe your work in three words what would they be and what moods do they convey? Although there is no ideal job, it is important that it brings us satisfaction. You probably don't think about it, but we spend much more time at work than at home with our loved ones.
If you are lucky enough to have found a job with a minimum of downsides, then for some people the job duties are a prerequisite for the deterioration of the lifestyle. Apathy, emotional eating, lack of desire to change, depression, problems in personal life.
What are the clear signs that a job disrupts the normal rhythm of life, see in the following lines.
1. You constantly talk about your work and in a negative light
If your conversations with friends, relatives, colleagues outside of working hours always focus on the negatives of your job, then it's definitely time to think about whether you should change it.
2. You can't wait for the end of the working day
Another sure sign that work is affecting your life badly is constantly looking at the clock and how much time is left until you leave the workplace. You feel like time is passing too slowly, and when you're away from work, it seems to be moving too fast.
3. The hardest thing every day for you is getting out of bed to go to work
As strange as it may seem to you, there are people who in the morning, despite being very sleepy, manage to get organized quickly because they like their work and it brings them pleasure.
On the other hand, you don't like your job, you have too many duties in it, communications you don't like and all this makes your mornings painful.
4. The best part of your day is your lunch break
Ideally, work is so fun, challenging, and satisfying that it beats lunch as a positive emotion. If the most enjoyable part of the workday is your lunch break, think about what other emotions your job creates and how they make you feel.
5. The company of your colleagues and boss is annoying
Unlike work that brings pleasure, work that disrupts our lives separates us from the team and management. We don't try to get close, get to know each other, or the company of people we used to enjoy, now we find annoying. Company event or party? Time that passes slowly and on duty.
6. You are not motivated
How often do you have thoughts like "Why should I give my best when I'm not appreciated properly"? If your mind is often occupied with such thoughts that you are not valued as an employee, you lack motivation to show your skills, you have become even apathetic, then surely your work is disrupting your life.Doing the bare minimum just to report activity hinders your creativity.
7. Relaxing with alcohol
How often after the end of the working day do you relax with a glass of wine, concentrate? We bet that stress can be eliminated if we drink today a little and tomorrow another glass, and so on every day. And it's not harmless, so think carefully about work and how it harms your life.
8. You will feel relieved if you get fired
This is one of the clearest signs that you need a new job. Something is holding you back at this workplace, you can't leave on your own, probably out of fear that you won't find a new job quickly, and you believe that getting fired will solve all your work problems.
