It can be easy to get stuck in a job rut, doing the same old thing because it has a decent paycheck. But if you find yourself dreading Monday mornings, it may be time to reevaluate your career choices. There are a lot of valid reasons to love your job, so here are a few of the most important ones.
Typically, people who make a lot of money in a given field are good at what they do. They spend a lot of time working at something until they become experts and people will pay a lot of money for their skills and expertise. It’s a lot harder, almost impossible, to put that kind effort into a job you don’t enjoy doing. If you love your job, you won’t mind the long hours and years of hard work it takes to become top of your field, and eventually the paycheck that comes along with it. Not to mention, just putting more hours into your job will be more money right away.
Working a job you dislike, or one that doesn’t align with your personality, talents or values, can start to stress you out. Stress can have serious health consequences. It can lead to weight gain, lack of sleep, a lowered immune system, depression and anxiety. Over a few years, those effects can take a serious toll on your body.
Imagine if you woke up on Monday mornings excited to do your job. You’ll be more motivated at work, be able to think of better ideas, and you’ll have more energy throughout the day. Your increased happiness at work will carry into the rest of your life, as well. Coming home after spending a day doing work you love is a lot better than coming home drained and exhausted at the end of the day.
