10 stress busters
This web page from the NHS outlines ten easy ways for you to reduce the amount of stress you experience. It includes tips on remaining positive, connecting with people, and getting active.
Personal resilience is the way we cope with challenging and difficult situations in order to overcome them. Simply put, it’s how we personally recover from stress. During times of increased stress, such as during the COVID-19 outbreak, it’s especially important to take the time to focus on your own resilience to keep yourself feeling calm and maintain your mental wellbeing.
This guide, developed by the NHS Leadership Academy, offers advice on improving your resilience, including tips on managing uncertainty, remaining steady yet adaptable, and understanding ‘good enough’ solutions. While it was designed for NHS staff, it could be useful for people in any industry who deal with stressful situations in their role.
