Stress is a normal part of our everyday life; however, recently, you find that even the tiniest task makes you want to pull your hair out. Then perhaps it is time to look into other possible career options.

Stress is directly related to dissatisfaction and unhappiness. If you're too stressed, even things like your favorite food will annoy you and make you unhappy.

It is a medical fact that stress can induce body pains. Is your neck or back always stiff? The reason might be more profound than lousy posture.

Your current career might be giving you more than just headaches.

When simple daily activities like getting out of bed cause pain, it is definitely time to reevaluate your career’s effect on your health.

You had different plans before life got in the way. Maybe your current career was a '’safe bet,’' now, what you initially wanted to do, haunts you like an old lover.

There can be plenty of reasons why you didn't follow your heart. A wise idea in these uncertain times is to reflect on past dreams and where you want to be into the future.

A comfortable life is what you wanted, and everything was going fine until recently a text/mail from your office makes you want to throw your phone away.

You sigh and get back to work but, somehow, it takes longer to finish than it usually did. Even if you force yourself, you barely have energy or inspiration.

You can't keep up with the pace of your work because no matter how hard you try, you can't focus. And since you can't concentrate, you have turned unproductive.

Unproductivity gives you a feeling of unfulfillment and makes you ungrateful for what you have in life. A fickle mind might also be the result of not liking your career anymore.
