So I am really struggling in work lately with boredom and lack of interest…I’ve noticed the thought is ‘I am loosing the will to live’, dramatic I know! I usually don’t have enough work to fill my 8 hours a day so find especially in the afternoon I am stretching out my work or have nothing to do and this thought loops like crazy and makes me feel boredom, exhausted and unmotivated.
It’s also making me think that this career (environmental engineering) isn’t for me, I have thought before that this career isn’t the perfect fit but is fine, but now I’m spiralling. I’ve the opportunity to go back to college to become a dietitian in September but I don’t want to make that decision without enjoying my current job as you recommend. So I need help with some new thoughts please! What I’ve tried is ‘I am lucky I have a job that isn’t too difficult most of the time’ or ‘It’s great that I don’t have a heavy work load and am not under pressure to complete tasks’ but they aren’t doing much for me…
