Everyone knows that juggling a work / life balance can be stressful. Keeping quiet and soldiering on is a very ‘British’ way. Too many of us hide behind our bravado stating that we’re OK, when in all honesty we’re most probably not!

It’s very important to take stock, and to feel able to talk open and honestly about the daily stresses you try to manage.

‘National Stress Awareness Day’ is an annual campaign to raise awareness of the effects of psychological distress in the workplace, and to promote various coping mechanisms to reduce stress.

 “The company workforce is an organisation’s most valuable resource. It is highly difficult, or even impossible, to replace this human asset which is why ‘workforce wellness’ is an organisational imperative.” – Carole Spiers, ISMA Chair, Founder of National Stress Awareness Day.


  • The total number of cases of work related stress, anxiety or depression in 2015-2016 was 488,000. Jobs that have proven to consume higher amounts of stress include; those in the business industry, media and public service professionals.
