Satisfaction and contentment is a state of mind.  Some people are content with what they presently have, whereas for some people nothing seems fulfilling and they always thrive for more. The desires are never ending and we keep shifting goals, be it short or long term goal. Similarly workplace satisfaction is influenced by a lot of contributing factors.

Work is defined as an activity which keeps you engaged, which earns you bread for your livelihood and satisfies all your basic needs and paves a way for being luxurious too.
 However it isn’t necessary that one must be satisfied when they come back home irrespective of their salary and work post. Here job satisfaction plays an essential role.

There is a person who is earning a good amount of money, living comfortably but they are not satisfied with job they are doing. Job satisfaction is the feeling of contentment or a sense of accomplishment, which an employee derives from his/her job. It is a result of appraisal that causes one to attain their job values or meet out their basic needs. It helps in determining, to what extent a person likes or dislikes his/her job. This usually happens when the job is not able to motivate you enough, in gaining power, recognition, affiliation or security.

Satisfaction and the level of contentment is directly in relation to what your needs are, and each individual have their own perspective to define work, needs and level of satisfaction. Some people prefer the certainty of a lower salary to the possibility of a higher one. A volatile startup job might be traumatic for them, even if it brings the potential to earn big.

Inner peace and satisfaction is essential when you come back home from work, if your work doesn’t make you happy and your job is not what you like, its time you rethink about the place you are in. being stressed and unsatisfied can lead to a number of mental health issues and become chronic. Don’t let the disappointment be a part of your routine. Help yourself by setting small goal and realistic expectations. Engage in pleasurable activities and seek professional help from an online psychologist whenever required.
