Is it time to move on?

Was it difficult for you to wake up this morning? We hate to break it to you, but you may need a new job! But how do you know if it is time to move on or if you just got the Monday morning blues? Don’t worry. We are here to help you figure it out! 

1. You dread going to work every single day

Getting up in the morning may be hard but dreading going to work is on a whole different level. Of course, you can have an off day every now and then, but if you’re struggling to get up for work every day, that’s not a good sign.

2. Lunch is the best part of your workday

Of course, all foodies would say that lunch is the best part of their day. We get it; food is life. But on a serious note, it shouldn’t be that you can’t wait for lunch every day so that you don’t have to deal with your work. Lunch should be a nice break but not a necessary escape.

3. You attend meetings physically, but mentally you are somewhere else

During the workday, your mind is everywhere else except on your job. You can barely focus during meetings because you’re just not interested in anything that is being talked about.

4. You don’t find anything exciting anymore

Yes, you may finish your work on time, and you do it well, but that’s just because you’re on autopilot. You already know how to do everything, and nothing excites you anymore except for ending your workday. And it’s not that you hate your job, but it’s just not challenging you anymore. You barely remember the last time you learned something new or when you were happy while performing a task.

5. You don’t get along with your coworkers 

Some people come to work and isolate themselves from their colleagues. That may be their personal preference and choice. But if you isolate yourself from your colleagues because you don’t like them or can’t seem to get along, then every workday gets a bit harder. Of course, you’re there to do a job, make a living and further your career, but a good work environment is also very important. It can damage your mind, body, and spirit if you have to work at a place where and with people where you don’t feel at home. We love cheesy quotes and sayings, so we’ll throw one in again the last one, we promise! Health is wealth. It is way easier to get a new job than to fix your health. So if you’re in a toxic workplace, you need to leave.

As you can see, there are a few clues that may help you recognize that it is time to move on. And moving on isn’t always a bad thing. You can move on to a better position, a higher paying position, a more challenging and exciting position. Or you can stay in the same position but just in a different company. Moving on is hard but at times, necessary. And with all the jobs available, staying in a place where you are not happy is just not worth it.
