I can completely relate. I can find it hard to sleep when I know I have to work the next day. May I ask, what aspects of the job are creating anxiety? Here are a few tips that have worked for me, I hope they work for you!:
- Meditation (lots of great stress-related guided meditations that range from 5 minutes+ so it just depends what suits you best). It really helps to teach us how to let go of the negative emotions and tune back into ourselves
-Breathe. When we are anxious or stressed our bodies become tense, our brain becomes preoccupied and we start to do shallow breathing. Deep breathing can really help to wind us back down.
-Think of your happy place. Try to close your eyes and think of a time that gives you a warm, positive feeling. Try to hold onto that feeling.
-Talk to someone! I'm really glad that you reached out to us here. It can really help to try to reach out to your support network as it can feel better telling someone what you are going through rather than holding it onto your shoulders.
Would any of these potentially work for you?
