#Trending 7/24/17: Signs Your Job is Making You Miserable

Your weekday evenings and weekends should be about clearing your mind and relaxing.

So if you come home and can't stop replaying a meeting that went wrong in your head or thinking about all the reasons why you don't want to wake up for work tomorrow, that can seriously impede on the quality of your home life, Morin says. 

Rumination has indeed been linked to depression, and Morrin says it can prevent some people from enjoying the little time they have away from an unhealthy work environment.

If you're truly unhappy and unfulfilled with your job, you may start to spend a lot of time and energy explaining to friends, family, and anyone who will listen just how bad your job is at the moment. 

This release might feel good in the moment, but Morrin says it's not healthy because it "robs you of mental strength." This, in turn, can increase your risk of distress. 

3. Social events with coworkers start to seem draining rather than fun.Daniel Goodman / Business Insider

Everyone needs "me" time, but you should still enjoy being social. 

If your job is sucking the life out of you, Morin says you might start to turn down any opportunity to socialize because talking with other people sounds too exhausting. 

It can be as simple as eating lunch at your desk instead of the break room or rushing home after work to avoid happy hour. 

4. Your thoughts about work are exaggeratedly negative.Juliana Dacoregio

When you have a bleak outlook on your office, Morin says you may start to think overly negative thoughts about work, such as "I'll never get a promotion," or "I always get scolded."

"Your inner monologue may drag you down even further," she says.

When you're feeling low, you tend to see the glass as half empty. 

Even if nine good things happen at work one day, you will probably focus on the one bad thing, Morin says. When you're feeling down, "it’s easy to overlook anything positive," she explains.
