Work Anxiety

Posted on January 3, 2020 by Brooklyn Clark

Anxiety is a natural response to stress. It is fear about what’s to come or the future. For example, it may be the first day of school, going to a job interview, or simply giving a speech may cause people to feel fearful and nervous.

In some cases people with careers experience this type of anxiety. It is called work anxiety.

Work anxiety is stress caused by work that leads to anxiety, or the impact of an anxiety disorder at work. Work anxiety could have negative effects and must be handled to obviate poor products both for workers and organizations.

So here are Tips to Manage Anxiety at Work:

  • Know Everyone

If you have a solid one-to-one relationship with officemates, this makes it easier to address problems with the individual rather than gossiping or venting to others.

  • Ask for help

When your work is hectic, it becomes easy to say “yes” even when you do not understand how something is done. But the pain of asking for help or clarification is worth it afterwards, and it can decrease overall anxiety about responsibilities.

  • Set deadlines

People with anxiety sometimes will agree to deadlines and timelines that they know they cannot catch. Most often, it’s better to be honest than to apologize later on. Not all deadline is negotiable, but it will save you hours of anxiety if you can be true frankly and work at an easy pace.
