How satisfied are you with your current position? Do you sometimes doubt whether this is the job you want to keep doing? Do the test. This way, you immediately find out whether it is time to look for a new job.
An unpleasant work environment? According to several specialists, it can lead to depression. The solution exists. You have to ring the alarm bell in time. Not sure if you are unhappy in your current job? Then check these signals.
You are constantly thinking about your work
Evenings and weekends are for relaxing. Do you continue to worry about what went wrong in the workplace? That increases the risk of depression. The trick is to learn to enjoy yourself in your spare time.
Trips with colleagues eat up energy
A dinner or a night out with some colleagues? Sounds nice! Unless you’re not feeling well. Then it feels more like an obligation, and then it only costs energy. Maybe your current job is draining you. That is a common reason to avoid social contacts.
You have physical complaints
Depression is not just an attack on your mental well-being. All kinds of aches and pains often accompany it: stomach cramps, headaches, etc. Your resistance can even drop, and therefore, you only become more susceptible to other diseases.
You have a short fuse
If you are unhappy at work, it also affects your mood. Do you ever catch yourself snapping? Maybe even completely unjustified? If you start barking at a coworker for something small, you may not feel comfortable.
You constantly complain and whine about your boss or colleagues
Anyone who is not completely satisfied with their job complains, not only to colleagues but also to relatives and friends. That may relieve temporarily, but it is not healthy because it robs you of your mental strength.
You are in a negative spiral
‘I never get the nice assignments’. “I won’t get a raise.” Those negative thoughts arise in your head when you are not feeling well. The result is a vicious circle. The glass is increasingly half empty instead of half full.
Getting out of bed is even harder
Do you dread going to work every day? Then you may find it hard to get out of bed. Logical because every step out of bed is a step closer to your work.
Your performance doesn’t matter so much
Do you often procrastinate? Or is your involvement lost? Even then, you may have lost interest in your work.
Did you recognize yourself in none or only a few of the signs described above? Well done! Then you still enjoy your job, and you are absolutely in the right place. Enjoy it as much as you can! #goforhappy
Were several signals above clearly recognizable? Then it is a good idea to look for a new job quietly.
