Stress Less

Stress is the way that you feel when pressure is placed on you. A little bit of pressure can be productive, give you motivation, and help you to perform better at something. However, too much pressure or prolonged pressure can lead to stress, which is unhealthy for the mind and body.

Everyone reacts differently to stress, and some people may have a higher threshold than others. Too much stress often leads to physical, mental and emotional problems. See below for further information or start improving your health today by booking your free appointment with a Health Trainer.

Stress management

Your GP will be able to recommend various stress management techniques for you to practice when you feel yourself getting stressed. Stress management is designed to help you take control of your stress triggers before they cause any further health problems.
If stress is causing you to feel angry, there are various anger management techniques that are available, such as cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), talking treatments or specific anger management.

There are also a number of independent support groups that are designed to help people to recognise and overcome stress. Your GP will be able to provide you with details of support groups in your local area.
