Here in Sutton Coldfield the sun has come out for a few days and we all want to be outside enjoying it. Sunshine has the ability to make us feel good and less stressed.
In a recent survey over 33% of the British population experiences stressed for one day a week. Eighty-five percent of people experience stress on a regular basis with health being one of the most common causes of their stress. These stats. are likely to replicate the levels of stress in Sutton Coldfield too.
I wasn’t surprised to read that many people were concerned about how their stress was impacting on their health and wellbeing. Exercise was highlighted as a form of stress relief.
