Anxiety in the Workplace

Did you know that anxiety is a normal emotion, it is one of our body’s natural reactions to stress.

Anxiety activates the body’s fight-flight-freeze response.

This means that the body prepares to either confront, escape, or freeze in the face of a perceived threat. Anxiety is not necessarily a mental health condition.

Most of the time, anxious feelings are normal responses to stressful situations in everyday life.

Below are some signs and behaviours that could indicate someone suffering:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Withdrawal from social activities
  • Seeming tired, fidgety or absent-minded
  • Constantly seeking reassurance
  • Worrying a lot about minor issues
  • Having frequent headaches, stomach aches, etc.
  • Avoiding difficult situations
  • Frequent unexplained absences

These actions may not necessarily signal anxiety or an anxiety disorder.

It's crucial that we prioritise our well-being and attentively engage with individuals who confide in us about their emotions.
