Today is Stress Awareness Day so we thought we would share some of our best tips to help manage stress at work and at home.

1) If possible, plan your week in advance as this will help you to know what you have going on so you can prepare and ensure you don't take on too much. If you find yourself with a schedule that is full to bursting, consider re-scheduling some activities that do not have to happen this week to give you more time to rest and recuperate.   

2) If work tasks become overwhelming, write down all the tasks that you need to do ona  piece of paper. Underline the ones that need to be done today and then number those tasks in order of importance (1 being least important going up). Work your way down the list, ensuring that you leave gaps between tasks to get a drink and something to eat, move a bit, and take some time to rest, doing something you enjoy. 

3) If you are struggling with continual negativity due to stress, try writing down three thanks that are good in your life right now and that you are thankful for. This can help to refocus a negative mind frame.

4)  Whether you are at home or at work, try to take a few moments to get some fresh air and exercise. If possible, go for a 10-15 minute walk and take in the people and sights around you. If you are unable to leave your work space, try just standing for a minute and doing some stretches if you can. Even a short walk to the kitchen to get a cuppa can help break the stress cycle. 

5) If the stress becomes too much and you feel restrained and held back by stress, speak to a friend or family member who can listen and possibly help you manage your load a bit. If you don't have anyone to turn to, you can speak to MIND (https://www.mind.org.uk) or Samaritans (https://www.samaritans.org/how-we-can-help/support-and-information/if-youre-having-difficult-time/signs-you-may-be-struggling-cope), who will listen and provide help if you want it, or call NHS 111 to speak to a health professional and get advice.
