What is anxiety?

The actual feeling of anxiety is a very human thing. It’s part of our biological make-up. We all experience it from time to time.

Anxiety is a natural response to stress or danger. It’s caused by a rush of adrenaline being pumped through your body to prepare you to deal with a potential threat. It’s what makes you feel fear and is what causes you react with either ‘fight or flight’ - a key part of basic human survival.

However, anxiety disorders can develop when this response is blown out of proportion. You can find yourself panicking when really there’s nothing to panic about. Sometimes, the feeling of anxiety can become so overwhelming that it can lead to what’s known as an anxiety attack.

A lot of these triggers are often beyond a person’s control, making it difficult to stop anxiety in its tracks. But, there are a number of work-related causes that you need to watch  out for, too – which is hardly surprising as we
typically spend 90,000 hours of our lifetime at work (ouch).

This guide

Will help you to support workplace anxiety across 6 key areas:

  • Spotting the signs
  • Adopt an open door policy
  • Being flexible
  • Having a conversation
  • Getting trained up
  • Championing a mental health friendly culture
