Are you happy at work? In these times when we are talking more about burn-out, bore-out or unhappiness in the workplace, how do you know if you are happy doing your job? Here are some telltale signs, according to clinical psychologist Johanna Rozenblum.
Discomfort, harassment at work, burn-out… There are many reasons to feel bad about the job you do. But what about the happiness you can feel at work? How do you know if you are happy professionally? Here are the signs.
We are happy to go there
When you have to get up in the morning, you may not want to go to work. “But if it’s quite the opposite, and you can’t wait to start your day, that’s a good sign.” explains Johanna Rozenblum.
We look forward to the future
We occupy a certain place in a company, but opportunities for development exist in all environments. “If you plan ahead, if you want to move on to another position, if you see yourself continuing your career with more important responsibilities, then everything is going pretty well.” adds the psychologist.
We are a driving force
When you love your work, you invest yourself fully. “Being a driving force, a force of proposal, uniting colleagues around a project… All this shows a positive investment, and therefore well-being at work.” indicates the expert.
We enjoy doing our job
When we love our job and are happy to do it, it boosts our morale. “Being happy at work also means having good self-esteem: you value your skills, your place within society. This goes both ways” assures the psychologist.
We like to talk about our work
With loved ones, friends, colleagues… We constantly talk about work. “It can be heavy for others, but a person who is passionate about their job will talk about it, sometimes a lot, with a lot of enthusiasm… But ultimately, it’s a good sign, it shows real fulfillment in the professional sphere.” concludes Johanna Rozenblum.
