Manage

stress

Stress seems to be an inevitable part

of adulthood that most of us will

experience at some point in our lives.

It’s been proven that whether it’s

through work, relationships or money

problems, stress can make the brain

more susceptible to mental illness.

However, there are ways in which

we can reduce or manage stress to

promote a sense of mindfulness and

relaxation. Yoga and meditation are

known to have many stress-reducing

benefits and have been found to

reduce the risk of anxiety and

depression in expectant mothers.

Above all, retaining a positive

outlook during difficult times may

also reduce stress. It could be as

simple as smiling. The journal of

Psychological Science published

a study in 2012, which found that

smiling during stressful periods could

lower the body’s stress response,

regardless of whether a person is

feeling happy or sad.

Find a hobby

While employment may cause stress, unemployment is linked with poor

physical and mental health.

Being employed brings more than a way of earning a living; it provides

a sense of identity and belonging, as well as offering structure to your life

as you strive to meet goals.

According to the Mental Health Foundation, finding a hobby or

taking up voluntary work may promote good mental health. Building

relationships and having interaction with other people is rewarding and

can significantly improve mental wellbeing.
