You’ll drift through life unhappy and full of regrets if you neglect your mental and emotional well-being. But cash flow is important and a priority to almost all of us. So what should we do?
You Are Unhappy At Work. Should You Quit Your Job?
Determine The Why
Ask yourself WHY are you unhappy with your job. Is it because of your workload? Your boss? Your co-worker? Know the deep-rooted reasons you are unhappy with your work. By doing so, it will help you come up with better action plans.
Sometime we feel unmotivated at work because our job is not challenging enough or our boss and peers don’t appreciate the work we do for the company.
Sometimes, all we need are words of encouragement and appreciation to overcome our unhappiness at work. Asking for feedback from your colleagues and supervisor regarding your work helps a lot.
When you feel bored because your job becomes a routine then ask your boss to transfer you to another department, account, a project that challenge you.
If you are still bored after being transferred then maybe it’s time to look for a new job.
You need to learn how to manage your stress from work or it will eat your productivity and your health. Learn ways to cope with your stress at work. You can do Muay Thai after work to release stress and tension. It will help you clear your mind on hard decisions you are making. Or any other things that makes you relax and helps you become more focus on your work.
If you still feel the stress after doing the things mentioned above, maybe it’s time to talk to your supervisor and request for fewer responsibilities for the next few days to re-energize yourself.
If nothing seems to work then it’s a good sign to find another job.
