Great tips on managing stress from Mental Health Organisation. Free online mindfulness course!
Stress is an issue which affects us all at one time or another
Especially in the winter months.
In our recent YouGov survey, 59% of British adults said they found life was more stressful than five years ago and nearly half of people surveyed said they felt stressed every day or every few days. A little stress every now and again can make us more alert and stimulate us into performing more effectively, but prolonged stress can be detrimental to both mental and physical health.
That’s why, this January, we’ve launched a campaign to help everyone cope better with the physical and emotional effects of stress. We’ve put together a pocket guide with the key facts and 101 tips to help reduce the symptoms, sourced from mental health professionals as well as the general public.
