11 Of The Best Jobs for People With Anxiety

Jobs For People With Anxiety


Did you struggle to get out of bed this morning?

Did a feeling of unease follow you throughout your day?

Is the thought of going back to the office and doing it all again making you feel a sense of panic?

More than 300 million people live in the United States, and 40 million of them suffer from anxiety, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. That’s a whopping 18.1% of the U.S. population, or nearly one out of every five people.

So if you carry the weight of anxiety with you every day, you're not alone — far from it, in fact.

Those who suffer from anxiety know even menial daily tasks can feel like insurmountable hurdles. Sometimes, just getting up and going to work each day feels like a great victory.

If you’re wracked with constant nerves, high-stress jobs should be out of the question, particularly those that involve large amounts of direct customer service. For instance, working as a server at a restaurant or a police officer in the city probably won’t do much to assuage your nerves.

But when you pick a career that caters to your needs, you might find dread of heading to the office starts to melt away — or maybe dissipates entirely. Consider one of these low-stress, well-paying jobs to provide purpose without triggering panic.

Here are 11 of the best job for people with anxiety:
