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.
