The world has become a particularly noisy place. Bombarded with information and images, constantly available at the touch of a button through numerous and often overwhelming and intrusive forms of communication – we rarely ever switch off. Pair this with the daily stresses of balancing work, family, relationships and a social life – and then top it all off with the pressures to be fit, healthy, eat and sleep well. And all of a sudden stress becomes a very real notion.
And whether you consider yourself to be stressed out or not, often it can manifest itself in a variety of not-always-obvious ways. Dramatic weight gain or loss, premature ageing, acne – and that’s just the visible signs. Stress can also be a huge contributing factor to illness, mental health issues and insomnia – to name just a few.
Luckily the first step towards de-stressing is super simple. Talking. Just consider that unburdened, relaxed feeling that you get when you sit and rant over a glass of wine with a friend. But when what it is that’s troubling you goes above and beyond the other half not clearing up after himself, sometimes a more expert opinion is required, which is where the live chat with AXA PPP healthcare expert Dr Mark Winwood comes in.
