Handling anxiety in the workplace

  • Don't suppress your anxiety. Practice acceptance rather than pushing it away.
  • Be mindful. "What do you notice when anxiety shows up? What are you thinking and feeling?"
  • Invite anxiety along for the ride. Confront your anxieties head on. If you're nervous about public speaking, take point on a presentation.

  • Practice self-care. 
  • Remind yourself that your mind is not always the best advisor. You get to decide whether the thoughts are worthy of your attention.
  • Take a break. It actually helps with managing anxiety.
  •  Stay connected. Social support is vital to managing stress.
  • Engage in exercises that relax your body and set your mind at ease.
  • Lay off the coffee as it can increase heart rate and physiological symptoms of anxiety.
  • Seek professional help.
