7 signs it’s time to quit your job
It’s Monday night and instead of relaxing on the couch watching tribal council on Australian Survivor, you’re feeling the impending doom of another work day to come.
Most of us spend a huge chunk of our day working, hence why it’s really important to love what you do. You don’t want to be feeling like an active volcano who is a nudge away from erupting all the time.
So how do you know if it’s just a motivation slump or something more?
Here’s 7 signs it’s time to quit your job and get the heck outta there.
You develop a burning hate for Monday mornings
We all get a case of the Mondays from time to time, but if thinking about your job constantly fills you with dread, it may be time to leave.
You lack enthusiasm and motivation
Putting less effort into your work and hating all work-related responsibilities? Think about pursuing a more fulfilling job.
Your boss is comparable to Miranda Priestly
If you have a boss from hell who can’t even make the effort to remember your name after months, move on.
Your health is suffering
Job stress can lead to depression, insomnia, headache and frequent illnesses. Don’t let this happen to you.
You become a total stress head at home
If you’re feeling agitated at work, chances are you’ll go home with that same attitude. This can have a huge impact on your relationships with loved ones.
You wait for any sign to have a sick day
The small headache is a full-blown migraine and the tickle in your throat may be tonsillitis – any slight excuse you can find to chuck a sickie.
Your bad day turns into bad weeks, and then bad months
Everyone has off days at work, but if you start to feel each week is a little worse than the last, you may not want to stick around much longer.
If it no longer works for you, then leave. It’s never worth staying at a job that makes you miserable and doesn’t help you become a better person. Find a place where you can shine. GOOD LUCK. We’re with you.
