It is inevitable that we will all face stress in our lives. It’s how we manage those stressful times that becomes important, as well as ensuring that stress does not become chronic or toxic, which can lead to a range of physical and emotional concerns. Much like anchors are designed to fix boats to certain positions, and provide stability and security in the midst of storms, there are strategies we can adopt to help us ride out the stressful times and stay anchored. In this series, Ben and Jess will go through a number of stress busting anchors you can adopt in own lives to help you manage stress well. In this first video, we discuss what stress is, the impact it has on us, and how we might begin to recognise stress in our lives.
