Friday is “catching up on emails” – day.
I am working from home and put some Craig David – Walking away on.
An email about the company doctor catches my attention.
I nearly forgot, but in two weeks time we are going to have a useless training about feeling worn out due to your job, how to deal with that, how you can prevent it, what are you rights salary wise and so on.
Apparently, that has happened quite a lot in the past few years.
We were asked to come up with questions so the company doctor can prepare his training.
I have most definitely reached my limitation of stress levels due to work before, but never even considered visiting a doctor about it.
Certainly, not one that conspires with the company’s interests.
Usually way too late, but if my work gave me stress, I would “Walk away”.
So I’m with there with you, mr. David 😉
I’d make sure my CV was visible for anyone and everyone.
I’d apply day and night.
Staying away from a toxic workplace can only help for those few weeks.
But coming back, you’ll notice that nothing has changed.
By then, you should walk in a faster pace.
Run even, as fast as you can.
Have you ever been overworked? How did you deal with that?
Did you visit the company doctor, or did you take the walk with me and Craig? 😉
