Let’s talk about stress!
“Stress – a word I’m sure is one that is familiar to us all. It is something that we have all experienced to a lesser or greater degree at different points in our life – but what is stress?” In our latest newsletter, Stress Management, developed by ESH Consultancy and Training Ltd, we are going to explore stress.
The newsletter explores different ways you can help yourself with Stress. With such a challenging year for everyone, taking some time to relax and practice self-care (where you do positive things for yourself), striking a balance between responsibility to others and responsibility to yourself is vital in reducing stress levels. ‘Mind‘ provide mental health support and information and have some tips and exercises that may help you to relax, which includes taking ‘a mindful moment in nature’.
Now that Spring is in bloom, it may be a perfect time to get out and about in nature. Whether that is a walk amongst the countryside or a stroll along the coastline or for some inspiration for what to do outdoors with the family, Visit Lincolnshire have some great tips too! Or maybe take a look at our variety of wellbeing courses on offer on our website.
