I'm so anxious about my lifeguard class tonight. I'm doing it so I can get a job as a lifeguard (clearly) and I need a job, but the classes make me so anxious. I feel like I can't handle a job as a lifeguard because I'll panic but I'm doing my best in the classes. I had a panic attack on Monday in the bathroom for like 45 minutes and it was terrible. We have to swim today and I'm really anxious about it.. someone help? Pls ;-;
Anxiety about lifeguard class?
What Guys Said 6
just relax and go do it. I was nervous as hell when starting new classes for things too but once you get through the first day you become acquainted with the routine and its just like every other day.0
Someone told me that courage is "Just putting your fear aside and treating the situation like a job to do".
And if it is any consolation, the bulk of the job will be:
--staying awake when it is dull
--breaking up fights between rugrats
Actual life or death situations will be few--if ANY.0
don't b anxious... believe in yerself!!! :D0
Lifeguarding isn't for everybody. But if you make it through your class and your first rescue (sometimes it can be years before that happens, so always be ready), you'll get comfortable with it.0
Okay, first off, your life will NOT end if you fail this class or will never be a lifeguard. Life always moves on. Faith helps a lot too and always believe that the future will be better no matter what.0

Why do you want to be a lifeguard? Ask yourself that question, and decide if it's worth putting yourself through this class.
Also decide if you can handle the job. Remember if a toddler falls into the pool or something, you can't panic.0
