We spend a major chunk of our lives doing what we do for a living. So if you aren’t excited about your work and constantly find yourself experiencing ‘Monday blues’ on all days of the week, it’s time to rethink your nine to five.
Not being satisfied at your job is one of the main reasons why some people are never happy, and if you’ve noticed these seven signs as well, then it is high time you left the job you are currently doing:
1. You don’t enjoy the work you don’t enjoy the work you do.
You aren’t passionate about your work the way you were when you initially took the job. To you, your work has become as mechanical as it could possibly get and you no longer put your heart and soul into it.
2. You dread going to work every morning.
From hitting that snooze button every morning to frequently being late for office, these are two major signs of loss of enthusiasm vis-à-vis your work.
As such, looking forward to the weekend has now become the norm for you.
3. Your work has started taking a toll on your health.
If you are experiencing increased stress levels, anxiety attacks, or gaining or losing weight, or just experiencing a consistent feeling of melancholy, it’s time to reconsider your decision.
If you are being paid less than what you think you deserve as per the market trends or are being over worked and no bargaining with your bosses seems to be working, it’s time to call it quits.
5. You don’t find the desired push to give your best
These days, companies declare bonuses or higher pay for better efficiency to retain its employees. Absence of such perks leads to lower motivation and poor quality of work.
So if you are in one such organization, it’s better that you left it and instead found people who actually valued the work you were bringing to the table.
6. Constant cribbing about your job.
If you often find yourself constantly cribbing about the erratic work timings, unreasonably long working hours, uncooperative colleagues and/or ungrateful bosses, it’s time for you to evaluate other, healthier and better options.
7. You’re looking at better opportunities elsewhere.
It’s always preferred to take up jobs which help you grow personally, as well as professionally.
