I always have stress migraines the first day of a new job. Do all the things you know have relaxed you in the past. I usually find that I fit into the routine very quickly and the stress eases up as I concentrate on the job itself.

Yes - these responses triggered another thought - in situations like yours where some anxiety is normal, even healthy, I'm learning to not freak out about being anxious. That just makes things worse. I comment on myself - "sheesh, I'm a basket case!" and then try to go on with my day, not giving too much attention to my anxiety. It exists, I acknowledge it, name it, see that it's appropriate for the situation if it's not all-consuming, and move on, living with it until circumstances change. I recognize its presence but don't feed it. I don't know your situation at all, but I hope you can find a way to let yourself be anxious, excited, even a little depressed, until you see what this new, unknown job is really like. You are a sensitive human being - that's a gift! Your feelings can be very healthy!
on your new job! New job jitters are like first day of school jitters in alot of way -- unknown territory at first, but after a few days, you'll feel comfy and ready to go! And, I wish you all the best!
Breathe! Congratulations on the new job! Getting one these days is a blessing. Your feelings are normal and familiar to me - and others on this team, I bet! In this next day, try to just breathe and give thanks for having a job, or a place to sleep, or food, or wherever your heart leads - I'm saying a prayer for you and I wish you well!
