Let's talk about Stress - Mental Health Awareness

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week! Mental Health is one of the most prominent issues in news today, and so it should be! 

This current lockdown period has affected our daily life and how we interact with others. This is not only stressful but we find ourselves with much more time than we have done previously. There are many links between stress and our mental health and therefore it’s important that we manage this. 

How do you manage your stress? Some things that you might find helpful:

A daily gratitude list - Writing and speaking out loud what you are grateful for. Some days this could just be your bed, sleep, your favourite TV show, your family or friends. 

Take a break from your mobile phone - your mobile phone can become a constant in each activity in your daily life, allow yourself a break from the news and social media and be present in what you are doing. 

Breathing Techniques - Taking time to focus on your breathing is shown to reduce stress and anxiety. You can find many different techniques a google search away some of which might include: Box and Yoga Breathing

Reduction in caffeine intake - being at home can result in an increase in caffeine intake, instead of getting another tea or coffee try and swap it out with a glass of water or juice.

At Jeesal we have invested in an Employee Assistance Programme offering a confidential help and advice service to our staff.
