As you’ll probably know if you’ve followed my blog for a while, I’m a big advocate of improving mental health.
From my own personal and professional experience, I know the giant impact that mental health conditions can have on our lives.
The thing I really want you to know, though, is that you don’t have to have a diagnosable condition in order to suffer from mental ill-health.
You can be having a ‘bad mental health day’ if you’re feeling stressed, anxious, or just generally in low mood that day.
It’s this kind of ‘every day’ mental health that I want to talk to you about today.
At the beginning of the year, which seems like 395750 days ago, I tweeted that I would be focussing on my career this year. I hope I’m gonna have a bit of a career change and, hopefully, I’ll be able to share my progress with you.
I’ve noticed a few other people in a similar position. Just the other week, I read Lucy’s post on her hopes for a career change.
And, I know, not everyone has their dream job. In fact, most people really don’t.
There’s a certain amount of rubbish-ness to be expected at work; everyone has crap days, weeks, even.
But, if things are consistently so bad that it becomes unbearable, it’s time to weigh up your options and have a think about whether it might be time to move on.
