How to Stop Feeling Overwhelmed at Work

Posted by

Work: sometimes it’s all a bit too much, isn’t it? The digital age bombards workers with new tasks from all directions, while the backlog of things that need doing builds and builds.

Unfortunately, that feeling of being overwhelmed by emails, colleague interactions and an infinite to-do list only makes it more difficult to make any progress towards a sense of calm. Stress and anxiety cause damage to the neural connections in your brain, making it harder to concentrate and potentially contributing to depression. You literally forget how to calm down. Things just get worse and worse.
