Calling In Sick?
I think we have all been there. Wake up with the worst feeling because you have to go to the job you have. What do you do? Call in sick so you don't have to go.
It's said that boredom and stress are the major factors that people fake being sick for work even when there is absolutely nothing wrong.
Do you do this? If so, you're not alone.
80% of all employees have done this (commonly called a "mental health day") at one time or another and some are serial users of mental health days. That's the word from a survey of 1000 workers conducted by ComPsych. So, why are we skipping work?
The most popular reasons were family and relationship issues, work-related stress, low energy, boredom and lack of motivation.
If you're doing this, it's either time for a new job or time to figure out another resolve to your current situation.
