National Stress Awareness Day 04/11/2020

The first Wednesday in November each year is National Stress Awareness Day

We all know what it’s like to feel stressed – being under pressure is a normal part of life. But becoming overwhelmed by stress can lead to mental health problems or make existing problems worse.

National Stress Awareness Day is a great opportunity to take a moment to think about our wellbeing and find advice or support on managing stress. We have suggestions for how you can join the conversation about stress.

Create a Stress Awareness Space in your workplace to help maintain your wellbeing, as noticing what’s making us stressed helps us learn how we can deal with it. This is particularly important in the workplace where stresses of workload and working relationships are common.

We’re asking employers to start the conversation about stress in their workplace. By creating a Stress Awareness Space, staff can share their thoughts and feelings when they’re feeling stressed.

Sharing how you’re feeling with friends and colleagues can make a huge difference. By sharing you could get some great advice and tips or find you can support other colleagues who need help. A fundraising coffee morning is a great way to break the ice.
