Focus on Stress

We all experience stress in our lives. Sometimes a little stress can be good to give us motivation or help us to prioritise, but all too often that feeling can build up and leave us feeling tired, pressured and overwhelmed. Stress can trigger or worsen other feelings of depression, anxiety or low self-confidence.

During this Mental Health Awareness Week why not take the opportunity to make small like changes that can help to ease those feelings and promote a sense of wellbeing.

Every day we will give you another idea to ease the stress in your life.

Start a journal or list

This can help you to see and express what you are experiencing as well as helping you to focus on your goals. It may also help you to identity any patterns or triggers.

Just writing it all down can help get those feelings out.

Use it as a brain dump if you need to.

You might want to put in headings like those shown to prompt you.
