If your diary’s looking bare on 1 November, give yourself and your department the day off to acknowledge National Stress Awareness Day. If you’re simply too busy, then logging on to this site, set up by Royal Sun Alliance, is probably the next best thing.
Information is accessible and well-presented with workplace stress the main focus of the page. It covers spotting symptoms of stress and the management of the condition.
Other features include a poll on the most stressed-out parts of the country (Scotland and Devon and Cornwall were looking irritable when we looked) and a special section on e-stress, which is due to e-society. Fears of computer viruses and handling excessive junk mail are among the e-stressors here. As with all stress-related advice and info, it all makes perfect sense, but applying it is more difficult. However, bookmarking this is a step in the right direction.
