Managing Stress | Top Tips

Managing Stress

Stress is a natural response to the demands of life, and while it can be normal and motivating, excessive stress can have negative effects on your wellbeing. This blog is focused on stress awareness, and our team have shared their personal techniques on how they manage it.

What is Stress?

When faced with a demand or threat, our bodies naturally respond by releasing stress hormones like adrenaline, causing an increase heart rate, blood pressure and breathing rate. While this can be beneficial in the short term, chronic stress can lead to negative impacts on both physical and mental health, including anxiety, depression, and heart disease.

Understanding the significance of stress awareness is crucial to effectively managing it. If you know the symptoms and triggers, you can take the right steps to reduce it. Our consultants have shared their go-to approaches and advice.

Dog walk & Podcast

Nicky McHale
I love to put on a podcast and taking the dog for a walk! (We have left some podcast suggestions below)


Katie O'Leary
I suggest making chamomile tea, it’s a known stress and anxiety relief with soothing properties!

Morning Routine

Katie Leuw
Instead of reaching for my phone first thing in the morning to check social media or email, I start by opening my curtains, brushing my teeth, and feeding my cat.


Cristy Jennings
I think going to the gym is so beneficial to manage stress. The gym can help bump up the production of your brain's feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins.


Hannah Bugler
My go to is doing some yoga to relax or a facemask in the evening would be a good way to relax.

Relax with friends

Charli Harris
Going to the gym or a chatting through thoughts with friends over a glass of wine is my go-to’s after a stressful day!
