Stress less

"To experience peace does not mean that life is always blissful. It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the chaos of life"

Experiencing stress is a normal part of life and can even be beneficial if managed correctly, improving cognitive function, ability to work under pressure and resilience. However, stress can become overwhelming, impacting on our day-to-day lives. Stress manifests in many ways, such as headaches, stomach problems, difficulty concentrating, feeling overwhelmed, feeling irritable and changing our eating, drinking, smoking and sleeping habits.

                                                                                                                                      

Living with stress can impact on our health and wellbeing. In 2018/19, 54% of all working days lost due to ill health in England were as a result of stress, depression and anxiety.

 

Experiencing long term stress can also increase blood pressure, muscle achiness, headaches and poor mental health. However, there are support services and steps you can take to manage and improve stress.

Our top tips

TAKE NOTE

When you are feeling stressed, write it down. What symptoms are you feeling? Has this changed your sleeping or eating patterns? What is causing your stress? Writing the scenario down may help you understand your triggers and responses.

Increase your activity

Physical activity is a great way to de-stress, improve sleep quality and to clear your thoughts.

CONNECT WITH OTHERS

Having a network of friends and family are important for good mental health. Discussing worries can help ease your stress and see things from another perspective.

TRY RELAXATION

Perhaps try soaking in a bubble bath, doing some breathing exercises, yoga or listening to calming music. Taking the time to relax can ease stress symptoms.
