National Stress Awareness Day, taking place on first Wednesday of November each year, was set up to raise awareness of the effects of psychological distress in the workplace. It also provides a great opportunity to think about the many reasons we can feel stressed, and the different methods that can ease it.
There are many ways to relieve stress and anxiety - breathing hacks, essential oils and sleep hacks to name a few. However, there has been a recent rise in popularity surrounding wellness apps and technology, especially ones that enable us to be present and stay on top of stress levels even when on the move.
