Prepare Your Day — Earlier

Set your alarm 30-45 minutes early and aim to get  at least 10-20 minutes early every day. Make it your goal to have your emails read and handled, work necessities in place and your coffee prepared well before you begin your work day. This can help to minimize the nervousness, and start your day with a positive balance.

“Settle In” Your Workspace

When you move into a new apartment, it never feels like your own until your boxes are unpacked and it feels “like home.” While you cannot completely personalize your work space to the same degree, you should apply the same principle: You will feel more settled once everything is geared up.  Add family photos, set up your email signature and voicemail accounts, and buy some office supplies for your desk that showcase your unique style. All of this will help to make you feel more comfortable.

Be Mindful Of Self-Talk

It seems obvious—but too many of us talk down to ourselves, which in turn makes us feel bad and ramps up our nerves. If you find yourself getting frustrated, remember that roadblocks, learning curves, and mistakes are inevitable during this time, and give yourself a little pep talk both internally and externally. You will feel better overall and your new colleagues will see you as someone who is calm under pressure.
