  1. Be active: Exercise won’t make your stress disappear, but it will reduce some of the emotional intensity that you’re feeling, clearing your thoughts and enabling you to deal with your problems more calmly!
  2. Take control: There’s a solution to any problem. The feeling of loss of control is one of the main causes of stress and lack of wellbeing.  The act of taking control is in itself empowering, and it’s a crucial part of finding a solution that satisfies you and not someone else
  3. Connect with people: A problem shared is a problem halved. A good support network of colleagues, friends and family can ease your work troubles and help you see things in a different way
  4. Have some ‘me time’: The UK workforce works the longest hours in Europe. The extra hours in the workplace mean that people aren’t spending enough time doing things that they really enjoy.  Set aside a couple of nights a week for some quality “me time” away from work
  5. Work smarter, not harder: Good time management means quality work rather than quantity. Our long-hours culture is a well-known cause of workplace illness.  Working smarter means prioritising your work, concentrating on the tasks that will make a real difference to your work. Leave the least important tasks to last
