However, the GM’s role becomes increasingly complex. Sports General Managers are under the constant watch of fans and sports media.

Sports General Managers & Mental Health

Anxiety and Depression and Sports General Managers

We all experience anxiety, but it would be most beneficial to seek help if normal anxiety develops into an anxiety disorder. So how do you differentiate normal anxiety from an anxiety disorder? Normal anxiety may be helpful because it helps us increase awareness of our surroundings and gets us ready to enter a fight or flight mode. However, anxiety disorders are not beneficial -they work against us because anxiety disorders are hard to manage; they’re in multiple aspects of your life, affecting your social or occupational functioning. Symptoms of anxiety disorders may include some of the following symptoms: irritability, fatigue, muscle tension, difficulties sleeping, difficulties concentrating, restlessness, shortness of breath, rapid heart rate, fears, or excessive worry.
