Stress Awareness Month – April 2022
Stress is something that we all experience at some point. Whether it’s a work deadline, financial worries or something more serious. Low-level stress can sometimes be helpful or motivational but equally too much stress can affect our mood, our body and even our relationships.
There’s lots you can try to help reduce your stress levels.
• plan ahead for stressful days or events – planning long journeys or making a list of things to remember can really help
• use time-management techniques to help you take control
• Try talking about your feelings to a friend, family member or health professional
You can get help and advice around dealing with stress on the NHS website.
If you’re feeling stressed, worried or anxious then you can call the Derbyshire Mental Health Helpline for free, any time day or night, on 0800 028 0077 or find out more online.
There’s also lots of advice online at the Derby and Derbyshire Emotional Health and Wellbeing website.
