Do you ever feel stressed out, frustrated, negative, uninspired or just plain stuck in your job? Many people have such feelings from time to time. However, if this is your experience of your worklife every day, it is a sign you may be burned out and need to do something about it.

  1. Frequently participate in gossip and don’t enjoy being with your co-workers
  2. Dread going to work and/or are chronically late
  3. Are overly tired and feel trapped/stuck with no place to go
  4. Cut corners, tell lies (however small) to cover yourself and are just not doing as good job as you know you can do
