Starting a job tomorrow.. Advice ?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hey guys. My 18 and I've been out of work for 10 weeks I have a job now and start tomorrow and the little things about it are making me a tad anxious. I don't want my anxiety to kick in and ruin it for me like it has in the past? I'm proud of myself for getting a job and I really don't want anything to go wrong. I may feel better bcus my mom works there too but we're not really close. Does anyone have any advice on how to feel relaxed at work? It's resturant work so I'll be very busy wnd I'll have to be sociable. Sometimes I get a random fear of being out in open spaces and not at home it can hit me out of the blue. Anyone got any advice for Me? Will be much appreciated X

    Yes absolutely! Here are a couple of tips:

    *When you start to get anxious, concentrate on your breathing. Take 2-3 deep breaths and really feel them. Focus on how good it feels. Once you breat out, tell yourself it's ok. You are safe to work. You are safe to make mistakes. All are part of life.

    *Know you can do it! Have confidence in yourself. Everyone will have a learning curve, but the more you are willing to go for it the more you will accomplish.

    *Lookup inspiring quotes before you go in. Find a fave for the day, and keep it in your mind so you can divert your attention when you get negative.

    *Make sure to exercise! The more you get out your anxieties physically (daily) the more relaxed you will be.

    Good luck to you!!! smile

    You might just end up loving it. Just be yourself and do your job and have a good attitude. Sometimes being around people is uplifting. Might be the best thing ever to be away from the same ole routine.
