There are times that I get "burned out". I like my job. I like taking classes at college. I like working on the tractor. I like my church. I try to find enough time for the community and rotary. From time to time they get overwhelming and I have to call a "time-out" day.
Basically I tell my wife that on that day noone is to expect anything from me. I will sometimes take my bike for a ride or sometimes just wander around the house doing little things that I have not got around to. Noone expects anything and most of the time I convince everyone to simply avoid me. It is tremendously relaxing really.

I've had great luck working for small business companies. It's extremely flexible and functions more like a family from my experience, obviously YMMV. In my current job it's nice that I can get my feet wet in other areas of the company too, e.g. even though I'm in a video production area, I've been able to do work in marketing and app development.

What is the degree in? It's always best to keep your current job while exploring your options. Look into moving within the company as that might be easier than going elsewhere. It might be that you just don't like the exact thing you are doing but a small (or not so small even) shift might be all you need to go into something that is a much better fit for you.
