Hello! Apprentice from QLD, Australia here.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm so glad I came accross this website.
I have a mind full of questions but I'd like to start with one that I'm afraid my fellow colleagues don't quite understand.

Does anyone have tips on dealing with chronic anxiety at work?
I've been doing really well with it so far, some things trigger me and I do have to go somewhere to calm down for a few minutes though.
Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to ChefTalk glad you joined. I would suggest you ask a separate question about anxiety as this forum is really just for introducing yourself. Anxiety is a normal thing for a young cook. It took me quite a few years till I felt completely relaxed in the kitchen. It will lessen the more confident you become in your skills. One simple thing you can do is get to work early and get all of your mise en place ready before service. Nothing raises your anxiety level more than getting to work late and realizing there is no way you can get all of your mise en place done before service.

Thanks,

This may very well be the most important piece of advice you ever receive...EVER.
