Are You Having a Bad Week or Is It a Bad Job?

March 21st, 2019

Depending on your current feelings at work, you may be convincing yourself it’s just a rough couple of weeks and it will get better soon. Or maybe your “couple of weeks” has lasted nearly a year and you’re starting to wonder if it’s a bad job. Instead of wallowing in your misery, try these suggestions to make it through this frustrating season at work.

 

Don’t bring it home

The first and best way to remain positive is to establish a hard boundary between work and life. It’s difficult to leave your frustration and stress behind, but it’s essential if you want your normal life to go on unaffected. By bringing work into your personal life, you’re allowing it to rule every part of you and will undoubtedly make the experience worse.

 

Check yourself

Sometimes, you are the problem. No one wants to admit that, but more often than not, we cause our rough patches at work. Whether we’re letting a bad professional relationship get the best of us or we feel we could be doing more, that negative energy will cause us to assume it’s our job that’s causing these feelings. In reality, it’s an attitude problem.

 

Shake things up

If you are fed up with the same old same old, ask your supervisor for something new. Be honest about your feelings and let them know you want to expand your knowledge. Not only will this make you proactive about your situation, your manager will see your initiative.

 

Don’t give up

Even when every piece of you says you don’t want to go to work, do it anyway. Push through and work hard on all your assignments. Sometimes the only way to make it through is to keep fighting through.

 

Consider something new

Perhaps you’ve tried these suggestions and more, but you can’t seem to shake yourself out of this funk. If that’s the case, you may need to seriously consider finding something new. The job search can be stressful, but it might be worth the potential happiness of a different opportunity.
