Are You Satisfied with Your Job?

Are You Satisfied with Your Job?

Are You Satisfied with Your Job? If you’re like a lot of people, when it comes to your job or career, you spend most of your time making sure that your boss is happy or that your customers or clients are happy with the work you do. But are YOU happy with the work you do?

Think about how many hours you spend at work each day. 1/3rd of your day, 5 days a week or possibly more, is spent in your current job/career. If you’re not happy, or worse, if you’re MISERABLE, that’s a huge chunk of your life where you feel miserable. And of course, it bleeds over into other parts of your life, so I think it’s safe to say if we’re not happy with our jobs and careers, we’re pretty unhappy all the way around.

And when we’re chronically unhappy, our health can take a major hit.

If you’re not quite sure whether it’s time for you to make a job/career change, here are some signs it is:

Your Body is Screaming at You

Do you often feel anxiety in your body? Do you have a lot of headaches, upset stomach and tension in your muscles? Are you always tired in the morning and don’t feel like you can face the day? If so, it’s an indicator that something is not right in your world, and if your family life is good and you have a good social circle, then chances are your job/career is literally starting to make you sick.

Your Self-Esteem Has Taken a Hit

Have you started to doubt yourself and your abilities? Are you no longer confident in your decision-making skills? Do you feel like your suggestions are never heard or taken seriously? Is there no opportunity for growth or advancement?

No job, no matter how good the perks or benefits, is worth it once your self-esteem has taken a hit. Feeling down on yourself can impact your long-term emotional well-being, and that can eventually negatively impact your health.

It’s Just a Paycheck

Money can’t buy happiness. While you need to have enough money to live on and support your family, staying in a job or career that sacrifices your own happiness because the money is great is a surefire recipe for an eventual health crisis.

Having nice material things can be nice. But not at the expense of your health and happiness. Better to have shoes that cost $30 and walk into a job you love, than $200 shoes and walk into a job you hate.

Your Passion is Gone

What was it about your job or career that used to excite you? Is that still around? When was the last time you felt passionate about the work you are doing? Maybe you originally got into your field for creative reasons but now you find yourself creating less and managing others more.

If you can’t remember the last time you felt passionate about the work you do… if you can’t remember the last time you felt excited about going into the office, then it’s probably time you thought about making a switch.

You Spend a Lot of Time Daydreaming About doing Something Else

Perhaps one of the biggest signs it’s time to move on is when you find yourself daydreaming about doing something else. Do you find you feel happy when you are daydreaming, but then when you come back down to reality you feel depressed again? These fantasies are your heart speaking to you, egging you on to do what your HEART desires.

Your Loved Ones Don’t Recognize You Anymore

This is a biggie! Do you find your friends and loved ones are all showing concern in your direction? Do they often ask, “What’s the matter, you seem down?” If other people have started to notice your unhappiness, then your unhappiness is at a level that suggests it’s time for a change.

I know that changing jobs or careers isn’t the easiest thing in the world to do. And no one is suggesting that you have to make the change in the next 30 days.

What I do want to make clear is, health and happiness are absolutely connected. If you stay in a job that is making you very unhappy, your health will eventually suffer. So I want you to simply take the next couple of weeks to check in with your heart, soul and body to see if you are unhappy. And if you find you are, I simply want you to start thinking about WHAT it is you would like to be doing and start brainstorming some ideas of how you could get there.

And then I want you to take steps, even baby steps, each day toward your new job or career. Even baby steps will eventually get you where you need to be.

Much love this fine Tuesday.

In order for your body to heal you’ve got to help it rid itself of harmful toxins that are stored inside of it. A holistic healer can guide you and help facilitate a liver cleanse, a kidney cleanse and a bowel cleanse.

Some other ways to rid your body of toxins are to exercise and stretch daily. This will help release acids from your muscles that are making your body’s pH too acidic. And an acidic pH is what allows disease to take hold.

Jumping on a trampoline is also a great way to move your lymph fluid and flush out those wastes. Sitting in a warm sauna and sweating will also help remove toxins.

Proper nutrition is critical to treating cancer.

It is possible to commit no errors and still lose. That is not a weakness - that is life.
- Captain Jean-Luc Picard, from Star Trek.

Every skill in the world - from athletics to art, pottery to public speaking - is built out of the nuggets of wisdom gained from failing over and over again.
As we become adults, we tend to fail less, so we forget what it's like to fail and treat it as a learning experience rather than a personal judgement.

Sometimes our faliures are due to influences outside of our control.
Sometimes our best just wasn't good enough.
You tried. You took a risk. They don't all pay off.
It's alright. It happens.

As we get closer to halloween, all the fun costume ideas people are coming up with make me think of a less literal mask.
The kind of masks we wear every day, around other people.
The masks we put on so we feel safer, like we'll be more accepted.

It's a good time to reflect on your inner masks - Are they stressing you out?
Do you feel like you can still be your genuine self?
Have you tried dropping the mask, lately?

Whether it's trying to keep a friendly face even when you're feeling down, or acting confident when you feel hopeless - It's often better to be emotionally honest with the people around you.
