4 Tips to Help You Fall Back in Love With Your Job

1274219_247 MedStaff_4 Tips to Help you Fall Back in Love with your Job_011422.jpg

Let's face it—sometimes, we get sick of our jobs. It happens to everyone. You get tired of the same old thing, the same frustrating coworker, the daily grind. And you're not alone: A Gallup report from 2021 found that only 34% of workers felt engaged at their jobs by the end of the year.

Have you fallen out of love with your job? Try these four tips to get your groove back:

1.) Change something.

It doesn't have to be something big. The smallest of changes can make a significant difference. Ask your boss for different responsibilities, or ask your coworker to switch a task with you now and then. If you work in a job with shift work, consider taking on a different shift for a week or two. Making changes like these can break you out of your slump and help you enjoy your work again.

2.) Take a break.

Many people fall out of love with their jobs because they're burnt out. And that's only become more common since the start of the pandemic. It may be the case that you haven't really fallen out of love with your job—you just need a break. Take a vacation; use your sick days. That's what they are there for. When you need to step away and recharge your batteries, do it. You'll be surprised at how effective it is.

3.) Learn a new thing.

Advancing in your career by learning a new skill is a great way to re-engage with your work and better your position while you're doing it. Ask about on-the-job training or mentoring opportunities that can help you learn something new. It will help you reinvigorate your passion for what you do, and it could help you change your responsibilities and boost your pay or standing at the same time.

4.) Remind yourself of the "why."

Think back to when you first started the job, or even when you first got started in your career path. Why did you do it? What inspired you then? Often, reflecting on the "whys" is a great way to remind ourselves of how far we've come and what we truly like about our jobs. It's also important to think about the impact you're making on others, whether it's patients, customers, or even your coworkers.
