Dealing with anxiety returning to work and school.
Most of you will be back at work or school now and it can be very stressful, especially with the new circumstances such as mask wearing. There are still many ongoing changes within schools and work places as a result of COVID-19, it is okay to feel not quite okay in these times.
What anxiety is, is a feeling of unease, nervousness or fear that we all can experience from time to time. Anxiety may leave you feeling physically uncomfortable, and when your anxiety is more severe, the sensations you feel could include nausea and a tightness in your chest.
Being put in a new situation can be daunting at first, however after a few weeks this feeling of anxiousness should ease, it can be hard if you have followed a specific routine and then all of a sudden it's changed, a few tips that I have to deal with anxiety at work and school are to:
Take a moment to breathe in and out for a minute, focus on your breathing and this can help calm you down.
Write down your thoughts and why you think you are feeling this way, this can help make it feel less daunting, (this also helps if you do hypnotherapy because you can bring these thoughts to your sessions).
On your break or lunch go for a walk in the fresh air it usually helps to calm nerves.
Although anxiety is a normal reaction, some people find it hard to control their worries and anxieties. if you think that your feelings of anxiety are more constant and are affecting your daily lives, then hypnotherapy can help with this.Hypnotherapy can help you take back control of your mind when you are feeling as if things have become too much to handle. Hypnotherapy uses a mixture of deep relaxation and positive thinking, each session that you have will get you closer to having a positive mindset again and help you feel as if you are in control again.
