Dealing with carer stress for National Stress Awareness Day

It's National Stress Awareness Day and carers can face more stress than most. 72% of carers say that caring affects their mental health.

While a little stress can be healthy, most of us know that too much can be bad for us. But despite knowing the facts about stress, carers often struggle to see the amount of things they are dealing with and the impact this has on their health.

Techniques like mindfulness and exercise can reduce stress and promote relaxation. As a carer, it is important that you recognise your own symptoms and limits – knowing when you need to take a break and letting someone else step in can make all the difference.

We have two free workshops to help make your life a little less stressful:

Managing Time, Thursday 14 November, 10am-2pm

As a carer, you will have many pressures on your time. Learn how to manage your time more effectively and reduce your stress levels.

Looking After Yourself, Tuesday 5 December, 10am-2pm

When was the last time you did something just for you? Learn practical, realistic strategies to help you look after your physical and mental health and avoid burnout while juggling a busy caring role.

Booking is essential for both workshops. To book, call 020 8663 5674 or email
