Mental well-being involves how we feel about ourselves and others, and how we are able to meet the demands of daily life. If employees are struggling with one or more of these elements this could be affecting their mental health, their performance at work and their personal lives.
How anxiety can affect your employees
Fortunately, anxiety and worry are both natural and controllable. Moreover, feeling anxious can act as a useful signal that we need to take action; guiding us to behave in a way that is in our best interests. Handled in the right way, anxiety can be controlled and minimised, allowing us to work and rest effectively. However, if it is not treated, anxiety can be extremely detrimental. Instead of protecting us, it can imprison us; stopping us doing the things we would like to do and living our lives to the full.
Dealing with anxiety effectively
It is impossible to eliminate anxiety, but it is important that we are able to live with acceptable levels of worry ad stress. If you or your staff members are showing signs of anxiety, it may be worth finding out if an Employee Assistance Scheme is available to you.
