Stress – How to reduce its effects

In this video, Sarah discusses some of the best ways that we can combat stress. Below are some of the ‘greatest hits’ from the video.


  • Exercise is great for reducing stress as it elevates production of endorphins: the powerful neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine
  • These endorphins are what give people that ‘runner’s high’ after exercise
  • Exercise balances mood, reduces stress and is great for anyone suffering from anxiety or depression



  • A few deep breaths will help your brain settle
  • The Limbic System needs time to calm down. Something as simple as taking the time to slowly inhale deeply then slowly exhale can make a world of difference


Talk to someone

  • Your manager, a friend, HR / People team, H&S / Wellbeing team
  • A problem shared is a problem halved



  • Tomorrow is a new day!
