Help relieve stress with Hospital health seminar

Heartlands HospitalFollowing the busy Christmas period, the first Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust health seminar of 2014 will discuss stress, the sustained effects of stress, signs and symptoms and building resilience.

Taking place Tuesday 21 January at 5pm in the Education Centre at Heartlands Hospital, the health seminar will include a presentation, providing tips and advice on how to manage stress, and a Q&A session.

The health seminar will be run by Sara Wood, occupational health and wellbeing manager at the Trust. She said: “The feeling of being under too much emotional pressure can lead to stress and manifest itself in physical symptoms. Work, relationships and money problems are often the greatest triggers of stress, which can lead to anxiety and low self-esteem.

“People react to stress in different ways. You may experience headaches, muscle tension, loss of appetite and become less tolerant. This dedicated health seminar will help discuss the ways in which stress can be managed, what support is available and how individuals can quickly recognize the symptoms of stress to make sure they can regain control before it has an impact on their health.”
