Managing Workplace Anxiety Training

This session can be delivered anywhere in Australia. Including Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Parramatta, Geelong.

Anxiety can causes nervousness, fear, apprehension and worry. Anxiety in the workplace is commonplace, and typically triggered by hostile or toxic work environments. This can severely hamper productivity in the workplace, and may even cause turnover rates to rise if the issues are not addressed. However, there are means to treat symptoms of anxiety. This training course is therefore set to help your team members manage their workplace anxiety to the best of their ability.

Workplace anxiety can affect workplace productivity and morale. It is absolutely necessary for all employees and employers to take care of their own mental health, and if possible, assist other teammates in doing so. These methods will train workers to keep improving, continue challenging themselves, and to keep a positive mind-set and environment. This training course is essential in keeping the mental health of workers up and about, and creating a positive work environment. This pairs well with sessions about mental health, self-care, and self-improvement. If you wish to know about our other training courses and services, please contact us. We’re helping teams and companies become their very best selves, and your team could be next.

Stay Busy After Work

Typically, rest or sleep is all the average employee can think about, especially those with workplace anxiety. They feel so worn out by work that they just want to sleep it off. Don’t do that; do anything else that you will enjoy. The problem with making work days a routine of clock-in, work, clock-out, sleep is that it emphasises work too much as the central thing in your day, or even your life, and going to sleep does not actually make one feel better about any mistakes or bad things happening at work. It only delays it for the next day, there are no other memories to distract you from the memories you make at work. We show participants how to take time after work to relax. We show participants how to create better, more pleasant memories to remember after work, so there’s motivation to get through the day and to end it on a high note, which is key to beating workplace anxiety.

Work Out

We illustrate the need for participants to stay healthy. Exercise is proven to burn the stress hormone, cortisol, reducing physical feelings of anxiety, while flooding the body with endorphins, the body’s painkiller hormone. The quickest way to become unhealthy and obese is to work a stressful job, eat unhealthy meals, never exercise, and go straight to bed after getting home. It can only kill you quicker and increase your social anxiety as your body starts to feel and look worse from lack of exercise. Bear in mind, however, that you don’t have to be a bodybuilder, and you don’t have to have a bikini-worthy body; you only need to be able to decent physical goal and hit it every time you exercise. Run for 600 meters straight without stopping. Do 30 push-ups with 20-meter walks every 10 push-ups for breaks. If it doesn’t seem to have an effect on your health, check your diet and exercise routine to adjust it accordingly. Keeping a strong balance between self-care and work life is key to beating anxiety, especially since feelings of achievement are anathema to feelings of anxiety, and exercising is its own little achievement in itself, being care for your own body. Participants learn healthy habits.

Challenge Yourself

We show participants how having self-set goals and challenges can keep things interesting. Work can often be boring or menial. This is no excuse to do it poorly, however, and we should work on changing the mind-set that boring and menial work always has to suck the joy out of life. It is, and always has been, up to us, the worker, to find joy in our labour. This is very possible with the right method and mind-set; this mind-set is the thinking that we should always be challenging ourselves to get better at what we do. If you work as, say, a retail person at the supermarket, challenge yourself to the customer’s groceries as fast and as effectively as possible. Time yourself if you have to, and it may just give you a small sense of pride in yourself that you can bag a month’s worth of groceries in less than a minute. You may even get commendations and promotions at work for challenging yourself to these little games; they think it’s hard work, but it’s just an enjoyable little game to you, and it makes the workplace much less toxic.

Be Everyone’s Secret Santa

We include examples for Participants to help them become more encouraging. This does not apply to just Christmas. This is about creating a positive environment for yourself to reduce your anxiety. Sometimes, the best way to help yourself is to help others. It can reduce anxiety to see your workmates having positive feelings, especially knowing that you helped cause that; in short, reducing someone else’s anxiety can reduce your own. Feelings are contagious; so spread positive feelings whenever you can.
