You are afraid to work. Every morning is the same: you have to drag yourself out of bed. It is not that the body is weak. The mind does not agree. Most of us know that. Most people have felt that way at least once in their career. Is there a way to overcome the dread of going to work every day?
I’m not sure if I have a perfect solution, but here are some tactics I’ve personally tried in my years of experience:
What should you do when you dread working out?
If you dread working out, do these four things:
- Don’t dwell
- Find the source of your fear
- Not for perfection
- Think of the work as an educator
Is it normal to act scared?
Yes, it’s completely normal to be afraid to work out. If you can’t bear the thought of waking up and working out, take a mental health day. If this feeling persists for days, weeks, or even months, it may be a sign that it’s time to look for a new job.
Before you decide to quit your job and find a new one, try these four things…
Don’t do it Monday blues Or the “dreaded going to work” syndrome has become your dominant thought. Yes, I know it’s easier said than done. But you have to start somewhere and that somewhere is your thought process.
The more you think about how afraid you are to work, the deeper you dwell on that feeling. Stop thinking about it. Remove that thought and focus your thoughts on something else.
Identify the source of your fear
Find the source of your fear. Otherwise, you won’t be able to deal with it. Don’t complain if you don’t know what you’re complaining about.
Write down all the reasons and see if you can solve them. I’m sure resignation has crossed your mind. But before you do that, let’s see if there’s any way to ease your fears. We cannot expect life to be perfect or work to be perfect.
Seek not perfection
As I mentioned above, life is not perfect. Why should there be work? Accept that things are imperfect because that’s how things work. If you expect perfect coworkers, perfect bosses, perfect resources, or perfect processes, you’re in for a shock.
No matter where you work, there cannot be a perfect system, a perfect factory and a perfect office. Because, believe me, no matter how high your salary is, it will always be high; No matter how good your colleagues are, they can always be better; And no matter how aware your boss That is, he or she can always be better.
Don’t seek perfection if you don’t want to be afraid to work. Demand adaptability from yourself. What you can do to prepare Working environment good?
Think of the work as a pedagogue
Ever thought that the process of work can also teach us something about life? Think of the work as an educator.
It teaches us that we don’t always have things our way and life means that sometimes we have to do things we don’t like or enjoy. But this is only temporary and we have a choice to do something about it.
Use this experience of terrible work like this your teacher. What does it teach you? Ask and answer and you will soon see this experience in a different light.
You can do something about the feeling of dread you get when thinking about work. Don’t be afraid of it. Sit back and have a plan of action to address it. When you start working on a plan to expand it, you’ll feel better—even if the plan doesn’t work long-term. Remember: every job is temporary! You will soon get out of this rough patch in your career.
We know many people don’t like going to work, especially if they feel lost, stuck, or burned out in their careers. If you’re having trouble finding a job you like, we can help.
