2. Severe anxiety symptoms, going on for a long time: lack of sleep, lack of appetite, loss of interest in work/ social activities, may lead to a full-blown panic attacks, low mood;
3. Avoiding coming to work on ‘critical days’– delivering a presentation, group meetings etc;
4. Escaping from work place just before the dreaded events take place.
If it does, you may be experiencing Work Anxiety Symptoms.
But there are things you can do to TURN THINGS AROUND.
This is what you do:
a) Look honestly at the perceived danger. Is it real? What exactly are you afraid of? What is going on? Don’t stop until you come up with REAL REASONS FOR FEELING LIKE THIS.
b) Have you done this before? What did you do in similar situations? Why is it so different now? Get real with yourself, keep asking yourself these questions and remind yourself of previous successes in similar situations.
c) Escaping and/or avoiding situations you fear is not the way to help your Anxiety. TEST your fears- use F E A R (Face Everything And Recover) to stand up to UNHEALTHY WORK ANXIETY.
