Do you find your commute home an agony?
Later, your dinner conversation is bitter.
Then, your sleep is restless.
If all this sounds true to you then it’s time to learn a few tricks that will make you hate your job less.
1. Keep your cool: Do not write scathing emails to your colleagues. Do not chat about how annoying some people are. You may need your co-workers’ help in the future if you try to leave this terrible place, so keep it professional.
As Carolyn Betts, founder and CEO of Betts Recruiting in San Francisco, ​puts it in a U.S. News blog post about career missteps: “Burning bridges is the No. 1 way to damage your career – worse than not performing at your job.”
Another rash decision to avoid: leaving your job without another offer lined up. ​Happyho also provide best tarot reading services in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.
Job searching, on the other hand, is likely a good move if you’re miserable at work. Just don’t look for a new job while you’re on the clock.
2. Focus on your outside-of-work life. If all you have going on in your life is work – and work is not good – where else will you find happiness and fulfillment?
San Diego-based psychiatrist David Reiss suggests asking yourself: “Do I have a sufficient life outside of work so I don’t become dependent on work for what it won’t necessarily provide?”
Dinner with family or friends, book club, craft projects, recreational sports, movie night – find something to fill in this blank.
3. Confront co-workers. Reiss sees a trend among his clients who are unhappy at work: Ninety-five percent of them have issues either directly or indirectly related to interpersonal relationships, as opposed to the actual ​job. In other words, it’s the people – not the paperwork.
Linnda Durré​, psychotherapist, business consultant and author of “Surviving the Toxic Workplace,” suggests speaking up to people who are making your job harder. “Start out positive, deliver the feedback and end positively,” she says.
And to ensure a paper trail for these interactions, “always, always, always put it in writing,” Durré says.
4. Set boundaries. Think of your co-workers as just that – co-workers – and not as close friends or family members.
Doing so will make sensitive workplace interactions feel less emotionally loaded. You’ll also be thankful for the personal distance if one of your co-workers becomes your supervisor, or the other way around. Managing and being managed is hard work, and they’re both more difficult if your counterpart is a friend.
5. Emotionally detach. This step is for when things get really bad, as you discreetly job search.
It’ll be easier to achieve this Zen-like resiliency to stressors once you’ve evened out your work-life balance and kept work relationships professional.
6. Change your perspective: Every job has great things and bad things,Nothing is perfect.
Once you realize that a perfect job and a paycheck isn’t a realistic goal, you’ll likely feel better about accepting some bad with the good.
Reiss suggests you look at work like this: “If I get my job done well, and people are reasonably polite, and I get my paycheck, it’s a success.”
