Work To Live or Live To Work?
There are very few people who do not need to work. For most, work is a necessity. It’s what people do to earn money to pay the bills and achieve the lifestyle they want. Working full-time means the hours spent at work take up a significant proportion of the waking day--great news if you love your job, but bad news for anyone who isn’t quite so enthusiastic about their employment.
Not liking work can have a significant impact on an individual’s personal and family life. According to researchers from the Australian National University in Canberra, “a poorly paid, demanding job ... can have the same negative impact on a worker’s well-being as having no job at all."
Being unhappy at work can often result in a person feeling stressed which can manifest as physical symptoms such as moodiness, poor sleep patterns and irritability. These are all things which can affect not only the individual concerned, but also those around them.
Luckily, very few things in this world are unchangeable. So, if Monday mornings fill you with dread or if being ill makes you happy since it means you don’t have to go to the office, then you’ve come to the right place. The tips below will show you how to not hate your job and instead turn it into one you love (or at least don’t hate quite so much.)
