Today is National Stress Awareness Day across the UK.
A stress relief strategy could be anything
It could be a short walk during a break, ten minutes of personal reflection or meditation, or maybe even something as simple as a hot drink and some fresh air. Whatever helps you relax is subjective to you so long as it’s helpful. Self-care is important.
But this doesn’t mean employers should be complacent when it comes to helping with stress. Company bonding days and team-building events can be really good for morale. For example, something like bowling, regular work socials, or company nights out. It’s amazing what a change of scenery can accomplish.
At the end of the day, it’s all about the small things. What small things can you do, whether you’re an employee or an employer, to make every day a little bit healthier?
