Is your job sucking your soul? Here is what you should do

It’s actually inevitable. After working for a while at any place, you eventually get tired of your job and start hating it. Every job comes with its downsides – that is why they call it ‘work’.
But if it’s really serious and your job is literally sucking the life out of you and you lose a bit of yourself everyday you head to work, know that you aren’t the only one. No matter how awful the job is, you can always find ways to cope with this situation and stay happy.

Is your job sucking your soul? Here is what you should do….

Make Changes

You always have a choice and you can always make things better, if not perfect, and you can definitely improve your current situation a bit. A little change in your work routine can be very helpful. You can change your role, switch departments, try working with different people – this will be a healthy change for you to disengage a little from your daily loathsome routine.


Just focus your energy on getting the tasks done and disengage yourself from office politics and energy-draining acquaintances that do you and your career no favor. Don’t take things too personally, and like they say “Don’t sweat the small stuff”.


So, do you consider your job exhausting and unsatisfying? Welcome to the club. You have to compartmentalize and be strict about separating your personal life from your work life. When you leave your work and head home, leave it mentally as well as physically.

Resist negativity. Keep looking for the positives. You can make a list of the positive aspects of your job and going through it could really help overcome the difficulty. Anything that makes you smile about your job, make sure you acknowledge and take advantage of it.

Look for the perks

Look hard for all the perks you can find that your job offers and take advantage of them whenever possible. Whether it’s the friendly environment or the flexible hours, turn your job into something that provides you with more than just a paycheck.

Work to live, don’t live to work

Always remember these words: when you work, be productive, but know when to take a break. Don’t overwork yourself to the extent that you may end up falling sick and face serious health issues. Don’t let your job take its toll on you.

Learn to cope

Every job comes with stress. The best thing you can do is learn how it affects you and in what ways you can deal with it and cope well. You can take up a hobby, start meditation, etc; just try anything that makes you feel better and you will naturally find yourself less inclined to pass judgment on your job and being unhappy all the time.

Bring things you love to work

You can boost your passion by doing what you love along with you. It could be something that you enjoy doing in your free time, like a crossword puzzle book perhaps, or you could bring along plants and family pictures to decorate your cubicle. These little changes can do wonders to improve your mood.

Take care of yourself

Never underestimate the importance of taking care of yourself. It’s easy to blame your work for your unhappiness but in most cases the actual problem lies within yourself. If you feel like every job sucks then the problem is actually with you. You could be clinically depressed and getting rid of your current job might not be the solution to your dissatisfaction. Make sure you get enough sleep, or your diet is well balanced. Exercise, sleep, socializing and taking good care of both your physical and mental needs make a job more bearable.


Even after trying everything if you’re still not happy with your job and you find that it is sucking the life out of you, then the last option is to quit and find a new place where you will love doing the work and it will be appreciated.
