Looking after your wellbeing


Anyone can be adversely affected by stress at any time of the year, but rushing towards the end of term and the festive season can be enough to give even the most chilled, sleepless nights.

What better time to share a link you may already have seen to a bunch of excellent podcasts that can help with a range of topics – from sleep, mindfullness, stress and relaxation to some positive encouragement for the New Year, New You resolutions you may already be thinking about.

The Mental Health Foundation is a great website with a wealth of information – well worth a look.  Here are the links to the website and to the podcasts.

Have a healthy, happy and restorative festive season.



Happy Friday!

In a recent YouGov survey, 59% of British adults said they found life was more stressful than five years ago and nearly half of people surveyed said they felt stressed every day or every few days. A little stress every now and again can make us more alert and stimulate us into performing more effectively, but prolonged stress can be detrimental to both mental and physical health.

That’s why, this January, the Mental Health Foundation have launched a campaign to help everyone cope better with the physical and emotional effects of stress. They’ve put together a guide with the key facts and 101 tips to help reduce the symptoms, sourced from mental health professionals and the general public.

If you resolve to do one thing this year, why not learn to manage the stress in your life.  It’s bound to make you happier and healthier.
