It is only the beginning of the week, only the beginning of the year and you already feel so stressed. It starts on Sunday evenings thinking of the workload ahead. Or maybe it is a pressure on your shoulders sipping your first coffee in the morning, heading towards a marathon of meetings, or simply juggling with the too-many activities of the day. It can be work, life, love related. Whatever the reason, we all should try and shake it out, understand the root cause, try and tackle this as best as we can. Wait too long and it will not just be a feeling: it will have effect on your health too.
Because you are not alone in this, AXA PPP healthcare has been focusing this month on reducing every day and work related stress. They will help you understand the various symptoms – sometimes, it starts with learning to slow down, listening to the signs your body sends you. You will also find on the stress centre page healthy guidelines, questions answered, support by experts. Those little steps that can make such a difference to the day, especially if you find it difficult to discuss it with friends and relatives to start with. Just enough to gain your confidence back…
