Be aware of the situations that spike your anxiety (getting feedback, writing important emails, being put on the spot, or starting the day with a messy desk).
When you know what makes you the most uneasy, you can better anticipate challenges and create a plan to deal with triggers.
Anxiety activates the body’s fight or flight response, which sets off a number of uncomfortable reactions from sweating to tunnel vision.
Calming yourself with grounding techniques (ways to stay in the present moment) can get you back in control. A few examples: meditation, stretching, calling a friend, or going for a walk.
While you can’t control most of your environment, make it a point to change what you can.
Get enough sleep, avoid too much caffeine, work by a window with natural light, and control noise in your workspace with headphones.
Consider making requests that’ll help you in the long term, like soliciting questions ahead of a presentation or asking your boss not to send you late-night emails unless it’s absolutely urgent.
Also, know your rights when it comes to managing your mental health (a flex schedule, additional time for assignments, and more frequent breaks).
Be careful to not overwhelm yourself. Setting realistic expectations for yourself is key to not only building positive momentum but also preserving your well-being.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
