Whatever line of work you’re in, there are bound to be quiet periods and busy periods. Sadly with busy periods often comes stress, and this can take its toll on our mental health and well-being.
According to HSE, the Health and Safety Executive, there were over 480,000 reported cases of work-related stress in the UK in 2015/16. This equated to 11.7 million working days being lost as a result of stress.
