Consider picking up a new pastime that requires your undivided concentration in order to shift your attention away from the looming possibility or reporting back at work.

Rapidly overcoming distress is not a competition, especially that everyone is not yet ready to leave their homes for work. While some may take pride through their readiness and cheerful disposition, it is alright to not feel the same way. Additionally, there are occasions when things feel more challenging than it was earlier, despite your belief that you have progressed and loved your job. That is certainly reasonable. If you disagree, remember that you worked so hard to get where you are now. You may be feeling under the weather but the world would never stop for your wishes. That is why you must take it upon yourself to take the challenge and head back to the office. You might even find yourself enjoying the time outside of your home. That is why you should never let anxiety take the reins of your life as it causes you to miss out on a lot of things that seem bad right now, but are actually beneficial for you in the long run.
Just take the time to compose yourself. It does not matter how you do it but you must be ready to head back to the office since that is a normal part of life.
