This might be a classic case of your work spilling over into your life. If you're not feeling challenged and motivated in the office, you may experience feelings of dissatisfaction and inertia in other areas of your life.
But you definitely shouldn't be feeling that level of animosity toward all or even most of your coworkers. If your colleagues are bumming you out, it's possible that you're just unlucky or the company culture is toxic. Either way, it's not a good situation if you're consistently upset over drama going down in the office.
You're stuck in a rut
Outwardly, nothing's going wrong at work. You just feel trapped. If you're feeling stuck, that could be messing with your overall life satisfaction. It's probably time to switch things up.
You loathe your boss
There are so many clichés out there about mean and unreasonable bosses, but this one's actually pretty important. If you don't mesh with your supervisor's managerial style, that's a major problem and could leave you feeling low — especially if they're a bully.
You feel totally numb about your job. You're not excited about any projects or upcoming possibilities. If you're not careful, your apathy about your work could eventually spread to other areas of your life.
You can barely get out of bed
This one's understandable, to an extent. Beds are pretty awesome. Those among us who aren't perky, superhuman morning people often prefer to snuggle up and hit the snooze button.
However, if peeling yourself off your mattress is a daily, emotional battle, that could be a sign that you really dread going to work.
You're not getting paid enough
Your job's okay, but it doesn't pay. Maybe that was acceptable when you were just starting out, but you want to be compensated now that you've accepted more responsibilities. If you're feeling blue over what you feel are unfair wages, it's probably time to talk about getting a raise or move on to a company that will compensate you fairly.
You never see your friends and family
A bad work-life balance can lead to a sad, lonely life. If you're constantly taking care of business and working over time, whether that means long hours in the workplace or even being glued to your inbox after you get home, you risk damaging your personal relationships.
You constantly feel like your potential isn't being tapped. Your skills and talents are underutilized. Your voice just isn't being heard.
You're craving a challenge and not having one is driving you a bit crazy.
You feel sluggish, like you're moving in slow motion. You feel sleepy at your desk, even though you know you're fully rested.
Feeling drained could be a sign that you work is taking a lot out of you. Work can be demanding, but it shouldn't always leave you feeling like a shell of a person.
You can't focus
You sit down at your desk, ready to work. Hours later, you realize you've accomplished nothing. All you've done is check all your social media platforms, glanced at the clock, and made small talk with your desk neighbors. Everyone gets distracted, but if you're a generally competent person that can't seem to focus, it's possible that your job is just a bad fit.
LinkedIn's cool, but if you're spending too much time stalking your friends' profiles, you might be feeling some work-related envy. You fear your job is inferior and feel you're missing out on other, better possibilities. This jealousy is enough to make anyone miserable.
Time has stopped
If you're sad at work, time itself might freeze, just like that one episode of "Twilight Zone."
Not really. But if you feel like the hours are dragging on and on when you're at work, that's a problem. Some days are slower than others, but if you're content at work, you shouldn't feel like things are happening in slow motion.
