Prioritise Health

Over the last year 74% of UK adults have felt stressed at some point even overwhelmed or unable to cope. It is hardly surprising with the events that have been put on us.

The point is, it is normal and ok but there are ways we can deal with it and overcome that feeling of ‘its too much’. The worst thing you can do is ignore the warning signs as it can easily lead to mental health illnesses.

Prioritise your health

I’ve spoken to many recently about nutrition and the effects it will have on our body but more importantly the mind.

When we are stressed, we tend to comfort eat, or do not prioritise time to eat and drink. Once this happens, we will look for quick easy sweet foods to try and keep our busy mind/life at maximum pace. Stop, give yourself time to eat and drink. Otherwise, you will fall into bad eating habits and make poor choices.

If you can, prep your daily food the night before, spending 10 mins or so will ensure you are preparing healthy nutritious food that your body and mind will thank you for. This will also make you much more proactive in tern reducing your stress.

Even if your working from home, take your lunch break. Eating at your desk is possibly the worst habit you can have.

Stress is a pressure cooker; you need to release it regular through the day. A lunch break is perfect for this.
