Stress Awareness Month
Tip 4 – Stay Connected
A good support network of colleagues, friends and family can ease your troubles and help you see things in a different way. Talking things through with a friend can also help you find solutions to your problems.
If you want to improve your mental health and your ability to combat stress, surround yourself with good friends and confidants.
At this moment in time when we are being asked to stay at home it is important to maintain contact with your support network. Despite being a double-edged sword, social media sites like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter can actually help you stay connected with friends and loved ones, leading to better mental and emotional health. Family pages can be created on Facebook, for instance, to help maintain connections with loved ones even when people are spread out across the country.
Stress relief technology comes in many forms, from apps to online games and social media, and everyone has unique needs. The great news is that technology allows you to try these different methods in the comfort of your own home.
