Getting Help for Anxiety

If worries feel excessive and out of your control, it’s time to call an EAP or a mental health professional and get relief. Anxiety is a common complaint among employees of all ages, particularly younger workers. You know it’s time to get help if you feel worries consume too much of your waking hours, interfere with sleep, affect your happiness and ability to relax, and perpetuate feelings of general dissatisfaction. Don’t be fooled; disruptive anxiety can still affect you despite your life accomplishments, IQ, smarts, or financial security—even if everything is going great in your life. Feeling you should not be worrying because your life is “just fine” can prevent you from getting help, while you also feel guilty for not being happier. Anxiety is not in your imagination, and resolving it is not about “snapping out of it.”
