April is Stress Awareness month and a good time to resolve to reduce the stresses in your life and get the help you need. Health bosses in Staffordshire are urging anyone who thinks they might be suffering from it to speak up and get some help.
We all need some pressure in our lives. It helps us to get out of bed in the morning and get things done, but stress is different. Whether it’s caused by work or by events in your personal life, if it goes on for too long it can contribute to raised blood pressure, heart disease and stroke and encourage you into unhealthy habits like smoking, drinking and over-eating.
