Stress is widely recognised as being one of the leading causes of ill health and absence from work.
On the one hand, stress is something we all experience to some extent on a daily basis; indeed, some stress can be considered to be useful, to enable us to be alert, activated and motivated.
However, stress that is not managed or controlled can become a problem, impacting our mood and behaviours. If this becomes chronic, significant health problems can arise.
There are many tools that can be called upon that can help to alleviate stress and manage the state of our nervous system. What suits one person may not suit someone else, so it is worth exploring a range of different options.
As well as breathing techniques, we can help with many ideas to keep you calm, grounded, mindful and able to be fully present.
