A high percentage of people are not happy in their current jobs. Maybe you are one of them. Most jobs have pluses and negatives. However, when all you begin to notice are the negatives, you may be on the road to burnout.
Here are some signs that you may be experiencing job burnout:
· You dread going to work.
· You have to drag yourself out of bed to get to work on time.
· You feel cynical. You are being asked to do more and more with less resources.
· You are having trouble getting along with others at work.
· You isolate yourself from others at work.
· You feel like nothing you do at your job makes a difference, and you feel disillusioned.
· You are feeling mentally and physically exhausted most of the time.
· You call in sick more frequently.
· You have physical symptoms such as neck and back pain, headaches, and increased susceptibility to colds.
· Your tolerance for things other people say and do is low.
· You are feeling depressed about your situation, which may sometimes lead to substance abuse to cope.
· You are having problems with sleep (ex. insomnia, sleeping more than normal, etc.).
· You live, breathe, and sleep work. If you never take a break, even if you enjoy your job, you are setting yourself up for burnout.
· Your productivity suffers, because you lack the energy and/or enthusiasm to do things.
If you notice any of these things, you need to take a step back and make changes now before it gets worse. The key is identifying burnout early before it gets too bad.
