I understand that you feel overwhelmed with the change of phase in life trying to integrate into the workforce.
Actually, you might want to consider practicing mindfulness, self-care. These can help you reduce anxiety at work. Break your tasks into smaller, more manageable parts, it helps to feel that the workload is less overwhelming, you may also prioritize tasks and tackle them one at a time.
Taking short breaks throughout the day can also help reset your mind and reduce stress. Ensure you have a comfortable and organized workspace to minimize external stressors.
Communication is key- don’t be afraid to discuss your concerns with colleagues or supervisors. They might offer support or help you find solutions. Set realistic expectations for yourself and recognize that it’s okay not to be perfect.
If you are feeling tense, you can practice deep breathing exercise while listening to one favourite song of yours. Just take a few minutes to focus on your breath, inhaling deeply for a count of four, holding for four, and exhaling for four and you will find yourself given a break to sustain throughout the day.
If you are tense because of work, communicate with colleagues or your supervisor. For instance, if you’re unsure about a project’s requirements, seek clarification. Effective communication can prevent unnecessary stress. You can also set achievable goals daily. Instead of aiming to complete an entire project in one day, set a goal to finish a specific part or make significant progress.
In order to achieve work-life balance, you must set boundaries, prioritize tasks, learn how to say no, schedule personal time, delegate responsibilities, unplug from work, focus on quality over quantity, and take regular breaks. This will allow you to fulfill both work and personal commitments while prioritizing your own well-being.
