What do you do to when you don't feel to work anymore?

We know that working 9-5 or in broken schedule is somehow really exhausting. There are times you don't want to get up from your bed, and want to stay and just sleep. lol! And some times, because of the same routine that we do every day at work, we feel that we're losing already our passion and love to work. And as time goes by, you are keep on thinking of quitting your job but you can't. How about you guys, what do you do if you feel the same way? To survive each day of work? lol!

Thank you neelia27, looks really that most of us thinking of our bills to pay vs. quitting job, lol! but that's the reality, unless we won lottery and stay in our home and just do whatever we want to do lol! but we need to sacrifice and do things we don't want to do, to stay in job we hate but give some rewards though.=)

I think most of us had felt this way at one time or another. I guess each of us cope with this feeling differently. Some are decisive on the matter and easily quit when they feel the work they're doing isn't worthwhile anymore. I however don't have the luxury to do it, especially when I have so much bills to pay. But I do however give myself a break, recharge myself. Sometimes this is all we need to continue with our jobs and not burn out.

Yeah break will definitely help us to recharge and refocus again to our job. But some times, there are people who really wanted to have vacation, but the boss is not giving it unless you finish your contract first. And commitments too are some of the reasons why we cannot afford to lose our job basically. Thanks beamer88.

Well, my case is a little different. Start now stating that I find myself at the ripe age of almost 38 years, still unemployed. For this I see very bad for my future! However I about 10 years ago, I was working. I worked in two shifts, ie, one week I was 6-14 and the following week I was 14-22. It was an extremely time consuming. Many times I wanted to put them all, but I thought rather than for reasons of force majeure, I had to continue working. But now that I'm unemployed, almost regret my old job and those rounds! The work is very important, if it is missing, you do not have the opportunity to become financially independent!

Thank you alberello. You're right, each of us have different story and reason when it comes to staying to job you hate and regretting after quitting your job you really hate, but no matter what, the most important thing is we will be able to learn something about what happened. =) thank you

Many times I have had to work at jobs I didn't like. I would fuss and fuss trying to pull away and then finally accept the fact that I must remain at the job. This allowed me to change my point of view and start to look for things I did like about the job. Usually I started very small, I liked the chair I sat on, I liked the cloths I got to wear, I liked the machine I got to use. You get the picture. Just remember the smallest thing that you can find to like will help your situation. And never forget the breath this helps with all stress. Blessings

Thank you savypat. Yeah, maybe recognizing small things will make you feel that you're still lucky despite the exhaustion your job brings you. Thanks again

I know the feeling. Then you start to get stress and fed up. What I usually do is relax on my days off, I do some exercise and get a lot of sleep. Then on other times I go out with friends, go somewhere relaxing like parks and beaches, to have fun and forget work even just for a day.

Thank you for sharing. You're right, spending some time with friends and hang out will somehow help you to forget your tiring work for that moment and glad that you enjoyed it too in your off work.

Probably the thing that will work for me, is remembering a time when I had no work at all, That will probably work well for me. Get me going!

I am still enjoying my work and even if it is stressful, I manage my v time and I am able to not completely feel so burdened about my job and task. I guess many factors are helping me now to feel this way because first my job is just a few minutes away from home and I do not have to get up early. Also sometimes we are allowed to be late and it is not so strict at work when it comes to Time in and time out. Next is I really enjoy my tasks and I like my work and the people I work with are great people. (At least the majority of them are friends).

I have had many different jobs and some of those jobs weren't very interesting. I didn't enjoy the job, but I didn't want to quit either because I had rent and bills to pay and I thought a job where I had lost my passion was better than no job at all. When I am in that situation I try to plan some small things that I enjoy during the day like a cup of my favourite coffee, a movie or a phonecall to a friend. It is much easier for me to get through the day when I have something to look forward to. I also try to find small things about the job that I enjoy like a nice conversation with a co-worker and similar things.

I did it for an entire summer in a job i hated and what kept me going was the paycheck and the fun I could have during my days off. Try to focus on things you like, find a motivation, get something you're waiting for. This is what helped me get through a whole summer of working in a factory doing the same work over and over. Hope it helps ;)

I think we must not forget our passion and constantly remind ourselves who or what we get up from bed for. As for myself, I get up for my family, stability, and income. I do not want to forget these things because these are the things that constantly give me my drive and fuel for everyday. Everyday is a challenge and we must not lose our drive to continue living and journeying in life.
