How To Relieve Work Related Anxiety
I didn't go to work again tonight. I called off very last minute again, and I am pretty sure there is just a matter of time until I get fired.
Sorry, I don't mean to start this post so depressing like this, but I will be completely honest with all of you because I believe all of you are my friends.. I feel like I wouldn't care if I were to loose my job or drop out of school at this point. Honestly I feel like I am in this endless cycle of failing, getting back up, failing, getting back up. I'm exhausted. Plus I am tired of this anxiety I get before work as well, its frustrating being at work and feeling incapable or as if you are not doing anything right.
The point of this post is not to complain to you all about how miserable my life is, I think it is my depression talking. I'm actually here to share with you all about the ways in which I am trying to deal with this anxiety. I have been working at my new job for a good four to five months and I still get that dreadful feeling at the pit of my stomach. There have even been times where I would wake up in a panic due to remembering that I have work later that day. I hate that feeling of my heart racing as if I just ran a mile but really I am in my bed trying to calm down my breathing. I know I am not alone in this, that is why I wanted to share a few things I have been trying to do that has been helping me relieve my anxiety before work.
If you have any suggestions you would like to share with the community please feel free to comment below, I know it would help a bunch :)
So In no particular order here are a list of five things I do to relieve work related anxiety:
1. Pray ( at least I try to)
2. Journal ( I love writing so this comes easy for me)
3. Take a Walk / Jog ( I don't know why there is something liberating about sweating, I like to sweat off all my worries.. is that weird? lol )
4. Speak Out Positive Affirmations Repeatedly in the Morning ( definitely a challenge and a process)
5. Eat a healthy breakfast before leaving ( food always makes the day a little better)
I hope these ideas help. It doesn't cure you, but it definitely makes the day a lot more bearable ( did I spell that right?) Also, I will be okay, I promise. It has just been a rough couple of days mentally.
Love you all & God loves you,
