You get to be creative with your work, something you’ve really enjoyed.
You’ve worked hard to get to where you are, but lately you find it exhausting. The constant Slack messages, the unrealistic deadlines. Sometimes it feels like it never ends. You should feel grateful, but you just feel tired. You dread getting the next message that interrupts your flow, the back-to-back Zoom meetings, and the inability to turn it off at the end of the day. If this sounds like you, you may be one of the many creative professionals experiencing anxiety.
You wish you could enjoy yourself.
Lately, it’s gotten harder to do that with all the unrealistic expectations. Your brain feels like it just can’t slow down. The stress and anxiety have become unmanageable. You notice that it’s hard to slow down, it’s hard to create boundaries around your work schedule, and your heart starts to race when you think about the next meeting. It may even be effecting your relationships.
I help creative professionals experiencing anxiety create boundaries, explore work priorities, and redefine their relationship to their work and identity. We’ll work together on finding moments of mindfulness to ground and be more present whether you are working or are with friends and family. We’ll explore what’s driving the anxiety in order to help decrease the size and weight that it feels.
I like to tell my clients that anxiety is not a bad thing.
Anxiety keeps us motivated and moving towards our goals. Anxiety is on a continuum, somewhere in the middle between excitement and panic. Unfortunately, when it becomes overwhelming we need to address it so that it has less power over our lives.
If you’re a creative professional experiencing anxiety and are ready to find new ways to cope, please contact me for a 15-minute free consultation.
