It is easy to get ground down after a few difficult weeks at work. We can dwell on the downside, the bits we dislike, the colleagues who wind us up.
Sometimes the answer is to change job – but not always. Different things to try include:
- Think about what do I like, what am I good at and try to do more of that!
- Start keeping a note of your daily successes. Try to get to at least three – not matter how small!
- Talk to your manager about redesigning your role
- Spend more time with people you want to be with rather than those who drain you
