Do You Really Hate Your Job? or Are You Just Bored?


Do you hate hearing the alarm knowing you’ve got to get up to work?

Is your commute full of dread for the day that stretches for seemingly endless hours ahead?

We spend so much of our life at work and if we’re not happy with our job, it impacts our overall wellbeing and happiness.

But you might not be making the most of your work and it might not be the job you hate.

You might just be bored.

How do you tell?

1. When Was the Last Time You Learnt Something New at Work?

Most jobs have a very repetitive edge to them.

Most people have to do the same things over and over again, and after a while, it grinds us down.

If you are learning new things at work, then you may still be bored, but at least your working day experiences change.

If you rarely learn new things at work, then you have every reason to be bored and should consider taking a new job.

2. Do You Have “Very” Good Friends at Work?

Even the worst jobs in the world can become bearable if you happen to work with a few characters.

These are people that you would want to spend your day with even if you were not at work.

If you have very good friends at work, it is quite possible you hate your job, and you may even be bored, but you should think hard before quitting.

Even if you look for another job, try to get your friends jobs too.

You could change jobs, but transfer the atmosphere and camaraderie.

3. Do You Hate Mornings?

You’ve guessed it, if you hate mornings then you hate your job.

It is a classic symptom.

People that really hate their jobs will also stay up late, just because they know when they go to bed, they are one step closer to going to work.

If you hate mornings, then you hate your job and should look for another.
