Stop Being Miserable at Work—if you’re Experiencing These Things, Then You Might Want to Consider Looking for Another Job

With the constant need to solve problems and think about new ideas, work can take a toll on your physical, mental, and psychological health—especially if you no longer find joy in what you’re doing. If these things ring true to you, then you probably should practice self-love and decide whether it’s still worth holding on to that stressful job of yours.

You Can’t Take Your Mind Off Your Work

If you find yourself constantly stressing about those pending tasks or upcoming plans even on weekends, then you might risk your mental well-being in the long run. Days off are ideally spent to recharge and refresh your mind for another work week ahead. It’s also a chance to socialize and spend quality time with your family and friends.

You Keep on Complaining About Your Job

Constantly ranting about what you don’t like about your work is a tell-tale sign that your job makes you miserable. If you don’t like what you’re doing, take time to step back and reevaluate your career path.

If work has been occupying even your personal time, then you probably need to reevaluate your career choices

Socializing with Your Coworkers 

Spending time with your coworkers may make you feel like it’s still part of your work. May it be as mundane as lunch breaks, you might end up getting worked up instead of winding down. Everyone needs alone time once in a while in between hectic schedules.

Negative Feelings Overpower the Good Stuff

You may have enjoyed your work in the past, but that positive aspect has now become overshadowed by the negative sides of your job. Because of that, you tend to look past the good stuff and just get overwhelmed with negative effects of stress.

You’ve Been Having Health Issues

Being miserable in your job brings a lot of stress. This could ultimately have adverse effects on your overall health. You tend to be more vulnerable to physical illnesses and you risk your mental and psychological health.

It’s Getting Harder to Roll Out of Bed in the Mornings

Do you find yourself hitting that snooze button a couple of times in the mornings and struggling to get up and out of your bed? It can be a sign that your work is making you miserable. It doesn’t excite you like it did before, so you’re not motivated enough to go to work—or even start your day.

Everything Annoys You

When you’re in a lot of stress, you also tend to become more irritable even outside of your workplace. This can affect your relationships with your family, friends and significant other negatively.

You’ve Been Calling in Sick More Often

Even if you’re not really sick, you still find an excuse to call in sick just to spend your day at home.

You Lost Your Motivation to Do Your Best

Since you’re not enjoying your work, climbing up the corporate ladder is not that enticing to you anymore. Because of this, you are not motivated to improve and do better in your job. You might end up just routinely doing your job just for compliance.

Mondays Have Become Nightmares

You always wish to have longer weekends so you won’t have to face the dreaded first workday of the week. So, your mood tends to drop when Sunday nights come along.
