11 Tips for Dealing With New Job Anxiety
1- Find the Source of Your Anxiety
2- Be Prepared the Night Before
3- Practice Your Morning Commute
4- Get Regular Exercise
5- Don't Be Afraid to Ask for Help
You may feel like it shows weakness to ask your co-worker or boss questions, but asking for help lets them know you’re working hard to understand how things flow rather than trying to do something you aren’t sure of on your own (and potentially messing it up).
6- Connect With a Co-Worker
7- Decorate Your Workspace
8- Use Quick Stress Relievers
- Breathing exercises: These can slow or reverse the fight-or-flight response you experience when stressed, which saves the wear and tear on your health that chronic stress can cause.
- Taking a walk: This can also help calm you down and exposure to outdoor spaces can be beneficial for mental well-being.
- Use distraction: Keep a stress ball or a fidget spinner at your desk to channel any extra energy and nervousness you might have.
