Does anyone else feel themselves getting to a Wednesday and thinking omg!!! This week couldn't go slower!!! I love my job, but sometimes I get bored of working in the office.... and doing HR can be quite intense at times I found myself google searching last night 'ways to enjoy your job more' it mentioned things such as - taking pride in your work space, set goals within your control, take pride in how you look at work, talk to your boss regularly.... I mean ok, yes it's helpful but I do them all! Any suggestions on how I can enjoy work more? Thank god its Friday!!

That sounds fab... were you into teaching already, or did you just take it up online?

I think what you are feeling right now is burnt out..I always tell my friends to balance their life style. Do not go home early try relaxing first by walking around nearby work..think that after work you will go somewhere else or meet a friend sometimes etc..

You see we work so that we could get paid, we could get some salary or remuneration. We should motivate ourselves that we have to work because our employer pays us for discharging our duties. We should not be unfaithful to our employer. At times, our work could be boring or repetitive but we earn through our work, therefore, we should work with due sincerity and diligence.

I totally agree and I love my job.... but sometimes I feel like a bit more excitement would be nice, you know?

@Eliziaknows Yes, you are right that we all need something new or exciting to keep us going. Repetitive activities, same faces, same bosses make the atmosphere dull.

I'm a stay at home mom now but I did work in an office for a few years before. When I started to get tired of going I would remind myself there are plenty of people out there who would do anything for my job so they could feed their families. Being grateful even when it's not the best situation will get you through anything. =)

Thank you.... that is a very good way of thinking of it and I do tell myself that... unfortunately there are many less fortunate people in the world... I wish I could help them!

@Eliziaknows I have always wished I could help the world too. Unfortunately I haven't won the lottery to reach a bigger amount of people but we have taken in homeless people before and given money when we can.

Just think of the bills you have to pay, the things that you want to buy in the stores and most of all, think of the payday...

That is exactly what gets me through the day.... I just wish I could wake up in the morning and want to go to work, instead of contantly thinking about the weekend!

@Eliziaknows We are only humans... Don't worry. As long as you can still wake up, get out of bed and go to work it's ok.

Do you like volunteer work? You can try doing volunteer work when you are feeling unmotivated. Helping others could make you feel better and more motivated at work. It could give you something extra to think about and occupy yourself in your free time, too.

@Eliziaknows I enjoy doing volunteer work too. It gets my mind off of other things. I know exactly what you mean. I work long shifts, most times overtime in a corporate setting. I know how overwhelming work can get. Yes, take that needed walk! I suggest yoga and meditation too. I've been doing it for years and they really help!

What you're feeling is normal. We need to have sense of balance between work and relaxation/leisure otherwise we'll be burned-out in the long.
