Work can sometimes get you down, which is why on the Daily Mind we try to give you the best tips and advice for making the daily grind more fulfilling and spiritually rewarding.
Making a difference
If you are contemplating a career change and want to pursue a job that really makes a difference, then why not consider a career in counseling? The role of a school counselor, for example, offers much in the way of job satisfaction and spiritual rewards as you would be helping youngsters to develop social skills and succeed in school.
Another rewarding but challenging job would be working as a substance abuse and behavioral disorder counselor. We often cover the subjects of overcoming negative thoughts or behaviour on the Daily Mind, so if these things interest you then this type of job could be worth investigating.
Listening and empathy
Being a good listener and having the ability to empathise with people are both important qualities needed for a career in counseling. The ability to engage with people and help them to develop strategies to improve their lives is also essential. These are the kind of things that mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists do in their every day work, helping people to manage or overcome mental and emotional disorders as well as problems with their families and relationships.
