Dealing with the day to day demands of any job can take a toll and cause tension, anxiety, and stress. It’s important to recognize signs or triggers and take the proper steps to manage these feelings before they escalate.

Here are a few easy ways to help lower overall anxiety in the office:

Stay organized

A clear desk is a clear mind. Reducing clutter can help you avoid distractions and keep you focused on important tasks.

Utilize PTO

A recent study showed that around 54 percent of workers don't use all their vacation days. Take advantage of your paid time off and you’ll return rejuvenated and with a clear mind.

Step away

Even if it’s just for 5 minutes, take a moment to regroup and step away from your desk. Go outside to get fresh air, drink some water, or just take a walk around the office.

Ask for help

If you are starting to feel overwhelmed don’t be embarrassed to reach out for help. Asking for assistance shows others that you care about the quality of work and the reality is we all need a little help from time to time.
