Coping with Anxiety in the Workplace

As this week is Mental Health Awareness Week with the theme being anxiety, it is important to raise awareness about anxiety disorders and its presence within the workspace. By talking openly about mental health and breaking down the stigma surrounding it, we can help more people get the help they need to manage their anxiety and live healthy, happy lives.

Anxiety is a natural and necessary emotion that helps us deal with stress and avoid danger. However, when anxiety becomes overwhelming and starts interfering with our daily lives, it can lead to a mental health disorder known as an anxiety disorder.

Anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental health conditions, affecting millions of people around the world and can lead to physical symptoms such as sweating, trembling, and rapid heartbeat. It can be triggered by various factors, including stress, pressure, and uncertainty, all of which are common in the workplace.

Dealing with anxiety at work can be challenging, but there are several strategies you can implement to help reduce it. Here are 4 tips to help you manage anxiety at work:

1. Practice stress management techniques

Incorporate stress management techniques into your daily routine. Things such as deep breathing exercises, meditation, and mindfulness can all help you to relax and reduce anxiety. Try taking short breaks throughout the day to engage in these practices, even if it's just for a few minutes.

2. Prioritise and organise tasks

Feeling overwhelmed can be a big factor when it comes to anxiety. Take the time to prioritise your tasks and create a to-do list or a schedule. Breaking down larger tasks into smaller, manageable steps can help you feel more in control and reduce anxiety.

3. Seek support

Don't hesitate to reach out for support when you need it. Talking to friends, family (or even your pet) is a great way of releasing anxious thoughts you may be having. Sometimes you may feel more comfortable discussing an issue with colleague or manager.

4. Healthy lifestyle choices

Your physical well-being can have a significant impact on your mental well-being. Your sleep, diet and excessive all play a huge role in your mental health. Physical activity can reduce stress and release endorphins, which promote a sense of well-being. Taking care of your body will help support your mental health in the workplace.

At Bytron we are proud to have a dedicated Mental Health First Aid team who hold their full Mental Health First Aid training. They can provide support and guidance with any mental health difficulties our colleagues may be facing. We also offer an open-door policy which means our management teams doors are always open and can be approached at any time to help and support employees.

Remember that managing anxiety takes time and practice. Be patient with yourself as you implement these tips and explore additional strategies that work best for you.
