As per recent statistics, India is the fourth most vacation-deprived country in the world.
If you are one of the diligently working employees, you might find yourself desperately seeking a holiday. Probably, a long vacation.
Watch out for these signs, as they tell that you are overworked.
You Are Always Stressed and Tired
Working excessively results in stress, which further leads you to appearing tired at all times. Chronic fatigue and constantly feeling drained are signs that you are burning out. Your mornings are mentally painful, too.
You Are Careless with Health
One of the reasons why you feel fatigued is because you don’t take good care of your health. You think too much about work, which eventually leads you to binge eating or preferring coffee at untimely hours just so you can stay awake. “I don’t care” is your reaction when someone explains you the side-effects of excessive working.
You Lack Concentration
Your concentration levels are low. Regardless of whether you are at home or at work, you often stare into space or your computer not knowing what your job was.
You Feel Angry At All Times
With you not getting enough sleep and living life recklessly, a lot of anger gets amassed within you. Life begins to feel like a prison. Anyone and everyone, who approaches you while concerned, gets a piece of your mind.
You Develop a Negative Attitude
With anger comes all the negative brashness. You always find yourself surrounded by problems, but when you are unable to come up with a solution, you begin looking for shortcuts. This further makes you cynical towards your colleagues and family members.
You Keep Looking at Your Watch
Be it meetings or a social outing with friends, you find yourself constantly looking at the watch. In between, you also yawn implying no interest in the topic of discussion.
You Search Online for Vacation Destinations
Desperately seeking holiday, you begin to constantly Google places that are exotic travel destinations. You also browse through pictures of trips you have taken in the past, which further pushes you into a sea of thoughts.
People Complain about Your Behaviour
People around you have noticed change in your behaviour and they complain about it. You hear your colleagues, friends and family members talk about how whiny you have become in the recent past.
You Begin to Procrastinate
Your mind is clearly not in place, which is why you delay all your tasks at hand. The job you used to finish in a day now takes three to four days to complete.
You Take Sick Day Leaves
You realise that the body is no longer coping with the schedule. You now begin to hope that you fall sick so that you can call in sick at work.
These are just some of the many physical signs that tell that you need break from work.
My advice: Plan a holiday and regain your sanity.
