Many workplaces and jobs can be exciting, creatively stimulating and emotionally rewarding, and a means to realize and expand your abilities.
Others can feel like being sentenced to a sweatshop. Especially if you’re dealing with anxiety or sensory overwhelm as a highly sensitive person.
And being highly sensitive can increase our vulnerability to anxiety, as I discuss in my post Sensitive to anxiety .
A lot of people are challenged with anxiety, as writer Anne Ahira notes: “It is estimated that over fifteen million people suffer from an anxiety disorder and learning to cope on a daily basis may prove to be very difficult and challenging.
“This is especially true when it comes to coping with an anxiety disorder in the workplace. If you suffer from anxiety, it is likely that you live in a constant state of fear of when the symptoms will occur.”
But she adds, “there are several different techniques that you may utilize in order to cope with anxiety effectively while performing your professional duties in the workplace.”
