YOUR ONE MINUTE with DR. KRISSY NEUROSCIENTIST and PROFESSOR 🧠
TOPIC: ‘Back to work and feeling anxious?’
Here are 3 recommendations for you.
👉🏽 (1) ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR FEELINGS – Naming how you feel will help you become more aware of what might be making you feel a bit off kilter.
👉🏽 (2) SLOW THINGS DOWN – This includes your movements, your speech, your day, so that you don’t add more anxiety on top of your current feelings.
👉🏽 (3) REMOVE UNCERTAINTY – Know your workplace policies around returning to in-person work, restart your routines and remove as much unpredictability as possible.
These 3 recommendations will engage your PREFRONTAL CORTEX (our planning and decision making center) which will then calm the fear response of our AMYGDALA in unsure times.
