What is the best way to fight anxiety sindrom natuarly withou drugs?

Several, not best: There are several types of anxiety & as a result several approaches are needed. Without drugs means primarily cbt (cognitive behavioral therapy) & desensitization therapy. There are a few natural but quite weak herbal remedies. Meditation, acupuncture & acupressure are useful non drug anxiety treatments as well. Significant anxiety often needs meds to get started and at times to stay well also.

Anxious about what?: Is work or school something you dread returning to on monday? Or is there something you really don't like to leave behind when you leave home on monday morning? The most likely way to beat sunday night anxiety is to figure out what causes that anxiety &try to fix it. If you can't do it alone talk to someone you trust or seek out counseling. It's obvious that you dread leaving home on monday. Why?

How best to cope with anxiety when at work?

Consult outside work: The best solution is to obtain a consultation (outside of work) with a psychotherapist who specializes in work related anxiety and stress. This affords you the privacy to explore openly the work related anxiety, gain insight and develop an appropriate way to cope with the work issue. The solution can be very different from how you deal with anxiety in your personal life..

Try several things: There's no single way. It might be more effective to try a variety of things that could help with your particular anxiety (there are so many ways a person can feel anxious and for so many reasons). Excessive anxiety is unpleasant and it interferes with enjoyment of activities. Of course, you can always discuss this with your doctor. Ideas: don't catastrophize; meditate; exercise; focus outward.

Depends on severity: Can try behavioral techniques, or medication. Depends on what is causing it, can tailor treatment to optimize. First thing is to make sure you are not doing something to cause it.
