How to deal with anxiety at work

How to deal with anxiety at work

1. To accept.

Accept your anxiety. Everyone has this emotion, and it's normal for me to have it.

Accepting does not mean inaction, admit that one's emotions are reasonable, tolerance and acceptance of their own emotions, so that they can objectively face the problem and deal with their emotions.

Work anxiety comes from certain work pressure, which is actually a process of facing challenges. If you have a job that is free of pressure and challenges, your ability to fight and face risks will be weakened. In fact, people who are content with the status quo are at greater risk than people who are constantly under stress at work. Because you can't control the changes in the external environment, it's easier to be overwhelmed when a storm comes. So accept your anxiety, accept the stress of the job, it will do you some good.

2. Exercise to relieve work anxiety.

People produce dopamine when they exercise, and your brain knows you're doing the right thing, which creates positive emotions. Exercise may not take away all of your work stress, but it can give your body more strength to withstand it. Exercise dilates your blood vessels, allows you to take in more oxygen, and harmonizes your hormones and endocrine status. But I don't encourage exercise for people who are severely sleep-deprived due to work stress, and maybe sleep is a better remedy.

3. Study

Although I do not encourage you to change jobs to relieve the pressure of work, but when you find that the job is really not suitable for you, maybe you should take the time to find your love. People usually suited to do what they're good at, which gives them some positive feedback that makes them love it. So it's really important to find a job that suits you. You may not quickly find out what you fit, or what you love to do. But you can learn. You can try. The learning process will also give you a slow understanding of what the industry you want to try is about and whether you are interested in doing it, and it will create opportunities for you.

4. Watch healing movies or novels.

Sometimes a random remark can open your heart.

5. Face it, don't avoid it.

This is also the most important. Work anxiety and worry won't go away just because you don't look at it and ignore it. Use a piece of paper, or turn on your computer, and write down your problems with the solutions you can think of, finish them one by one. You may become less critical of yourself, and this mindset adjustment will lead to less anxiety.

  • Thanks for the advice. I work at a bakery and we are very short staffed. I take orders, replenish coffee, stock and stock out items, dining room clean up, and deal with impatient customers. How do I do all this at the same time. Even if I tell a customer in my line that I just have to replenish coffee, I will be right with you, they get all pissy and moan. I have had panic attacks at work due to the stress. Tried counting to 10-20, too half a lorazapam before the lunch rush. None helps much, except the lorazapam, and I only have 6 pills per prescription. Help!
