  1. Very good tips for dealing with anxiety at work, all the tips you shared will help people with their anxiety at work once they make it a daily routine.

    Many people experience anxiety at work because they are not happy with what they are doing, I was that person for many years and my anxiety did get the best of me because I did not have good coping skills.

    Everyone needs to find what works best for them, your article will give people a good start in finding what works for them

  2. Hi there, thank you for writing this. I think this article will benefit many people who are suffering from work anxiety. The steps outlined could potentially be the right solutions for them. I agree the most with getting to work earlier so that you can properly plan out your day. Staying organized is a very good solution for work anxiety. Anyways, thanks again.

  3. Getting less anxious generally just comes with experience I feel. When I worked as a business consultant at Rogers I felt nervous as hell the first week I worked there. But it’s all about figuring out the workplace and what about the job makes you anxious.

    Eventually, if you work somewhere long enough your anxiety starts to disappear the more you work. The hard part is just slugging it out.

    I like your article a lot, gives nice practical advice, although I have to say that it’s hard to be optimistic about a job that doesn’t pay you well, is stressful and where you can’t move up.

    1. Hi Darren, thank you for sharing your opinion :) Uh yes, in my experience, dealing with anxiety at new job can be easier over time. The problem is when you feel the job doesn’t pay you enough. If you have experienced this struggle while you think your job is overloaded, you may want to check how to negotiate with your boss here.

  4. Thanks for the interesting article and very good tips for dealing with anxiety at work. Actually I think your tips are very good for all kinds of anxiety, not only the anxiety at work. What do you think about doing some yoga or some other exercises before going to work? It helps me at work and with many stresses and anxieties during the day.

    1. Hi King, thanks for letting me know :) Will be glad to read how you handle your anxiety at workplace. Anxiety is a common problem for us, the office worker. I hope our tips can help people to deal with it.

  6. These are some nice tips. I used to suffer from anxiety so bad when I worked at a physical job. I would be kept up at night thinking about it, have nightmares about it, then have to wake up after 3 hours of sleep with even more anxiety. I’m so glad I work at home now, but I could’ve used your tips at the time.
    Anyway, I spent some time going through the rest of your website. I really like the simplicity of it all. It makes it easy to read and comprehend.

    1. HI Gina, glad you have sorted it out :) Yeah anxiety is one of major problems most workers encounter frequently in their jobs. Thank you for sharing your opinion and your compliment :)

  7. I think getting enough sleep is one of the most important things to do. I have found that getting enough sleep clears your head and you are able to think clearly the next day. This ties with staying away from a glass of wine the previous evening.
    As much as a glass of wine can do wonders to calm one down after a long day, you usually feel terrible and anxious the next day. Good article.

    1. Yes thank you Sazi for sharing your opinion. Getting enough sleep is not only a good way to deal with Anxiety, but also to increase the productivity at work. Thanks for commenting :)

    1. Hi Richard, thank you. It is certainly hard to be positive and optimistic at the work. This is true especially when you are new to your job. I hope this tips can be useful to you :)

  9. I didn’t even know I needed this when I came across your article but I definitively have some stress at work lately (don’t we all). Not that it’s related to my work load or co-workers but I guess the job becomes generic after more than one year.

    These super simple tips makes me feel better just by reading it, I guess that means I never really though of them. I LOVE the first and last tip of going to work earlier and getting enough tips. For one, sleeping more lately has helped me feel a deal better.

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. You’re very more than welcome, Anh :) Yeah, simple actions like come earlier can make a great change. I hope you will feel really better after applying some tips above :)

  10. Thanks for this great post on getting control in one’s business life.
    Most folks do not understand how simple preparation and planning can ease their stress levels a lot.

    I love how you have broken down each stressful detail and provided an easy and reliable fix for each situation.

    The only thing I do not do is #6, praying to me is something that folks do when they can’t find resolution, I am a technician by trade, so I deal with the realities of a situation and resolve it.

    I will leave the praying to those that choose to not educate themselves…
    Thanks again, great post,

    Gary

    1. Hi Canna :) Thanks for visiting and I hope those tips can really help you if you ever caught in anxiety at your workplace. Yes, you can abandon the praying tips. Some people may find it useful but some other who prefer logic over belief or just can’t find comfort in praying may resort to other tips :)
