When it comes to working full time, a common job is a sales job. While it can be one of the most proficient and lucrative careers, it can also be one that taxes the mental health state of an individual by bringing on job stress, work anxiety, and obsessive tendencies. Career therapists and individual therapists in Orlando have noted that the majority of people in the sales field struggle with a work-to-life balance, managing and coping with stress, performance anxiety, and general anxiety tied to financial stress.
If these are applicable to you, individual therapy could be a great way to turn these distresses into positive strengths. This is where you can work on putting together a positive work-to-life balance, coping, and managing stress and learn how to positively disconnect from work. It can also help with putting the sales mind at rest and transitioning into the home mind.
Therapy can also be geared towards removing the need for external validation from customers or clients and empowering one’s own ability to perform great in the field and excel. Working in the world of sales takes great time and commitment but that doesn’t mean that your mental health doesn’t deserve the same treatment in this field as well!
