Anxiety, Memory, and Your Workplace Performance: Signs to Look Out For

When most people think of concentration or memory loss, they think of old age – after all, it is true that as we get older, our memory may become more strained. Did you know that you can experience memory loss at any age, and anxiety could be the cause of this? Our long-term memory system ensures that we’re able to complete those business projects in time, that we remember to follow up with a prospective client, or that we prepare adequately for that meeting that we’re in charge of. When anxiety is involved, however, our long-term memory system becomes disrupted – making more mistakes than it normally would. If you experience anxiety quite often, it’s possible that this could be affecting your memory – and your workplace performance.

Studies are showing that small boosts of anxiety can improve memory, but long-term stress and anxiety does cause inflammation in the brain, which can make it more difficult to concentrate and store information. Myra Fernandez, professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Waterloo, told Inc.comTo some degree, there is an optimal level of anxiety that is going to benefit your memory…but we know from other research that high levels of anxiety can cause people to reach a tipping point, which impacts their memories and performance.”
