My job is starting to eat up my life, or to be more specific my worrying about it is. In general I like the job but I beat myself up for tiny inconsequential mistakes and worry about things that aren't in my control. Rationally I know I shouldn't allow these things headspace but I just can't help it. I want to do my job well and I suppose if I'm honest I do worry what other people think of me - I worry they'll think I'm incompetent if I make the slightest mistake. The result is I'm stressed during work hours then I spend my evenings analysing the work I've done and what I still have to do. I wish I could be one of these people who can just switch off/let things bounce of them. I do also realise how lucky I am to even have a job to worry about in the current climate. How can I maintain some perspective, leave work at work and maybe even just care slightly less?
Sounds like my old friend anxiety to me.. the calm app is good.. when you come home take the dog or your neighbours dog for a walk. Busy your head with something else. Yoga etc you know the routine.. life no better in a month? Well lexapro from the Gp sorted me out ...
Oh and connect with people outside work...
Yep, I recognise it's an anxious thing really. It's just frustrating as I left a previous job because i hated it and it was ruining my mental health, I felt like a new woman for 6 months and really thought I'd solved it. But it's all creeping back in despite me actually enjoying the new job. I do a bit of yoga but could up the number of classes actually and could certainly be going for more walks than I am, thank you.
