Anxiety and addiction are two fast and easy ways to ruin even the most established of careers. A host of performance, trust and professional issues tend to crop up in the workplaces of anxious and/or addiction-burdened individuals. Are you one of them? Maybe it’s time to consider counseling and/or rehab as a way to seek help.
Sources of Anxiety & Addiction
Your anxiety may be stemming from one or a combination of a number of factors including: stress, physical health, mental health and drug or alcohol addiction. Counseling can be a wonderfully effective method for realizing the source or sources of addiction – the first step to working towards health and life management.
Punctuality & Attendance
Anxiety in public places, fear of the possibility of poor performance, the inability to remain sober long enough to get to work on time and in the proper mindset… these are just some of the ways that anxiety and addiction can take hold and have detrimental effects on your career. Has fear, anxiety or drug and alcohol abuse been making you late to work? Have any of these factors caused you to start a pattern of leaving early or not showing up for work?
Your Relationships at Work
Have you suddenly found yourself isolated at work because of your behavioral or emotional changes or because of how your co-workers and supervisors suddenly act towards you? Have you been missing important work social functions or find that lately your invites have gotten “lost in the mail”? Truly analyze if these changes may have been a result of your problems with anxiety and addiction. It often seems to us that our private struggles are in fact private when they’re blatantly obvious to those around us – particularly to those we spend the most time with such as co-workers.
Performance on the Job
Think about your work performance in recent months and openly and honestly assess how you’ve been doing. Do you lose focus and concentration easily because of thoughts of impending doom or dread? Do you have a hard time focusing on work because you are occupied with thoughts of getting home to continue consuming substances? Are you up all night occupied by your anxiety and addiction? Are these factors causing you to experience trouble sleeping? What is your relationship with your work clients like lately? Are you receiving negative feedback from superiors and co-workers on the job regarding your results?
