Breaking up is hard to do
So, the holidays are over and you’re already thinking about quitting your job.
You’re not alone!
A whopping 65% of people resolved on New Year’s Eve to find a new job.
Instead of joining the hordes of ‘quiet quitters’, here are a few tips to make you fall in love with your job all over again:
- Take on new challenges and responsibilities.
This can help you learn and grow and can also make your job more interesting.
Research from the Harvard Business Review found that employees who take on new challenges at work are more engaged and have higher job satisfaction.
- Find ways to make your job more meaningful.
This could be by focusing on the impact your work has on others, or by finding ways to make a positive difference in your organisation or community.
- Pursue additional training or education or look for a new role within your organisation.
- Take breaks and make time for activities outside of work.
Having a healthy work-life balance can help you feel better overall.
A study by the University of North Carolina found that employees who have a healthy work-life balance are more productive and have lower levels of stress.
- Set goals for yourself and work towards achieving them.
This can give you a sense of accomplishment and purpose.
A study by the University of Pennsylvania found that employees who set goals for themselves are 30% more successful than those who don’t.
- Make connections with your co-workers. Having positive and supportive colleagues can make a big difference in how you feel about your job.
- Find ways to make your job more enjoyable.
This could be as simple as bringing in a plant for your desk or taking a short walk during your lunch break.
- Seek feedback from your manager or supervisor.
This can help you understand what you’re doing well and where you can improve.
A survey by the Society for Human Resource Management found that 70% of employees who received feedback on their performance felt more motivated to work harder.
- If you’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed, consider talking to a mental health professional.
They can help you develop coping strategies to manage your feelings.
The World Health Organisation estimates that 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives. Seeking help from a professional can be an effective way to manage stress and improve your overall well-being.
