Whether you are employed, an employer or self employed you will be familiar with stress and anxiety.
In the year 2016/17 over 12.5 million working days were lost to stress, anxiety and depression in Great Britain according to the HSE. That is 49% of all working days lost to ill health in that period.
It is not just working life that suffers every element of your life is affected. I found making very simple decisions like what clothes to wear that day and what food to cook for tea really stressful and difficult.
Below I have listed ten top tips to help with stress, some of these did help with my stress levels.
Avoid caffeine, alcohol and nicotine
Indulge in physical activity, even just a gentle walk will help
Get more sleep
Try relaxation techniques, meditation and breathing techniques really helped me
Talk to someone
Keep a stress diary, really does help writing things down
Manage your time
Watch a good film or read a book
