1. You Have the Sunday Night Blues… Every Night of the Week

Even when you’re working at your dream job, and love almost everything about what you do, Sunday nights are rough. It’s normal to feel a little twinge of regret as the weekend draws to a close and your Monday-morning to-do list looms. But when those Sunday Night What-Ifs become an every-night occurrence, it’s a good bet that your job is the problem.

2. You Have a Lot of New Physical Ailments

Do you have aches and pains that weren’t there a few months ago? Are you having trouble sleeping? Has your appetite changed? These are all physical symptoms of depression. That doesn’t mean that your job is to blame, of course, but if everything else in your life is the same and your job has changed, it’s worth asking whether work is the problem. (And in any case, it’s essential to get evaluated by a doctor as soon as possible.)

3. You’re Not Excited About Your Job Anymore

Every day at work doesn’t have to feel like a party, but if you’re never excited about your job, something’s wrong. You work for many reasons—to keep a roof over your head, to use your skills and talents, perhaps to help others or achieve things most people can’t. But without some sense of purpose and passion for work, you’ll burn out in a hurry.

4. You’re Not as Good at Your Job as You Used to Be

Maybe you’re making little mistakes that you ordinarily would never make, or maybe you’re less engaged with your work and therefore less effective. But if you feel like you’re not good at your job—and you used to be confident that you were!—you might consider whether it’s time for a change.

5. You Spend a Lot of Time Venting About Work

A little griping about work never hurt anyone. (Provided that you’re doing your complaining to a trusted friend, not a coworker who might be your boss someday.) But if you’re spending a lot of your time venting about your job, consider whether the good still outweighs the bad.

6. You Find It Harder to Concentrate

Obviously, it’s easier to give something your full attention when you’re engaged with it. Beyond that, hating your job takes a lot of energy. If you loathe your work right now, you probably don’t have a lot of energy left over for your actual duties.

7. Your Vices Have Multiplied

Cookies are no longer your sometimes treat. Comfort food is on the menu three times a day. And cocktail hour has become a cocktail evening and night. Meanwhile, you aren’t getting much exercise these days, and the last time you saw a vegetable, it was in a public service message plastered to the wall by your bus stop. (And it made you feel pretty resentful, truth to be told.)

8. You Haven’t Had a Raise in a Long, Long Time

Money isn’t everything, but it’s hard to pay the electric bill without it. Beyond that, it’s hard to feel appreciated when your paycheck has stayed the same while your job requirements have increased. Plus, thanks to inflation, if you don’t get regular raises, you’re actually earning less than you were a few years ago.

9. You Don’t Have the Time or Energy for Your Outside Interests

Maybe it’s because you’re depressed and don’t have the energy, or maybe it’s because you work so much that you don’t have time to engage in hobbies or spend time with friends and family. Whatever the reason, it’s not a good sign.

10. You Feel Like You’re Always at Work, Even on Your Day Off

The irony of being stuck in a job you hate is that it tends to consume your every waking moment—even if you don’t have a boss who calls you at home or emails you at 3 am. Good jobs allow for true work-life balance, which means being able to unplug from work to enjoy your life. If you find that you’re always ruminating about work—or actually working, when you’re meant to be enjoying time off—it might be time to move on.
