Is it a bad patch? Will things get better? Is it just the thought of returning to work after time working from home or being furloughed? We all have times when we struggle to get motivated for work, but how do we tell if it’s more than a blip and that we need to take action?
Your first step to answering the question is to get honest with yourself. How do we really feel and how long have we been having these feelings? Let go of any guilt that may creep in because you have a job, when others around you may not, or to the outside world, it may appear as though you have it all. But burying our head in the sand is not going to resolve the situation, it is not going to help us feel any better. We need to get real with ourselves and acknowledge our feelings and how long we have been feeling like this. A temporary blip is not 6 months
