Making the decision to quit your job is not an easy one to make – especially considering the high rate of unemployment in the country at the moment.

It is better off sticking to a job that you do not like other than not having one in the first place – right?

While the fear of the unknown future may be scary, certain circumstances may force one to move on from their job and according to Lifehack these are 5 signs to consider a job change.

1.You complain about your job all the time

It’s not unusual to complain about your job – no workplace is perfect – but if you find yourself complaining all the time without finding a solution to your complaints then it may be time to move on.

2.You dread going to work everyday

Your Monday blues prolong throughout the week and even go on for months while at your job. Despite everything you’ve done to try switch up the routine or take on different challenges at work, the situation remains as is.

3.Your health is at stake

If you’re drastically losing weight or having constant anxiety and panic attacks from stress at your workplace then it may be time to consider leaving your job.

4.You’re not growing

If you’ve been at the same position for years without any form of promotion or change how you are from the first time you stepped into your workplace then you are justified to get a new job.

5.The work environment at your job sucks

Your boss is always trying to bring you down or the overall workplace environment is always negative. This in return is affecting your performance and you’re not able to put your all into what you do.

It is important to have a back up plan before deciding to up and leave your job.
