Work is a bit of an inevitability in life. And that statement in and of itself should be a reason why folks who really, really hate their jobs should just accept it as a given and move on.

However, if that is not an option, there are a handful of things that people can try to make the best of a life that’s structurally designed to be one-third work.

One of the first things to do is to go back to the start: ponder why you took the job in the first place. Remember the things you enjoyed doing, think of the things that you achieved, and draw inspiration from how it all started.

It’s also helpful to identify your goals for the job. Start with short-term and move on to long-term ones. This might help you get a more positive outlook on your job.

It’s, in general, helpful to have a positive perspective on everything, including work. Positivity might help you stay more productive, and that, in turn, can lead you to identify ways to make things more efficient and, hence, less of a slog at work. Remember, working smart is better than working hard.

But if that doesn’t work, try to find something new and fresh in your work by working on improving your skills or getting some training. If anything, you’d be better off if you end up choosing other job opportunities.

Rewarding yourself is definitely a great tactic. It provides the benefit of increasing one’s confidence, relaxing people, and even improving their mood. At the very least, it gives you something to look forward to after a hard day’s work.

However, setting boundaries might end up being the more efficient solution. If work is taking a toll on your health, set a boundary. That, in turn, will mean you’re going to have more energy after work, feel less exhausted, and work might become more fulfilling again. Like a domino effect, except for the better.

If you’ve come this far in troubleshooting your anti-work tendency, then might we suggest trying to raise your energy levels by doing things that make you happy? You know, hobbies, things that are therapeutic that would supplement your corporate life with something that’s actually considered life.

If all else fails, nothing really beats talking to someone about it. Whether it’s a friend or someone in your work setting—even if it is a manager—talking about problems at work is key to keeping the corporate gears going. If you are a skilled employee, then you have an advantage. But note that talking has to be done strategically so as to not be in a situation where you shoot yourself in the foot.

If talking goes well, your manager will be able to look for solutions and mitigate your current job struggles. Maybe they’d be able to improve working conditions? Speaking of which, you can set up a good working environment too by decluttering your desk, having a routine, and surrounding yourself with things that make you feel good.

And if you happen to be on the supporting end of things, i.e., you love your job, but your coworker doesn’t, support them.

This involves hearing them out, listening to their concerns, helping them ponder why they would choose to stay, what ought to change for that to happen, and encouraging as well as empowering them by pointing out their strengths, what you admire most about them, and why they are a great fit for the job.

And if push comes to shove, there is nothing wrong with quitting.

Corporate society is a bit of a culprit for pushing a way of thinking that essentially demonizes quitting. Quitting is not a sign of failure—sometimes, it’s the best option. If a relationship is toxic and hurting you, you don’t stick around. Same with jobs—you don’t grin and bear a job that is killing you. It’s not supposed to do that.

Sometimes, you gotta take a step back to be able to take two steps forward.
