I was delighted to answer the call from Express Medicals Limited looking for specialist input as part of â€˜Stress Awareness Weekâ€™. One of their clients, Dragados, had asked for a speaker to help everyone understand the subject of stress, what it does and how to tackle it.
It was an early start at Bank underground station: the talks started at 7.30am. Their questions and interaction were fascinating – here Iâ€™m revisiting some of the key points I made, so that you can read what I covered too.
When we think of exercise we think of sports, the typical but structured process of a regular routine. Either where we join other people or work out in the gym on our own. This requires a lot of effort and often doesnâ€™t suit us all.
Instead, think of a simple process: moving more often!
Many of us are far more sedentary than is good for us. If going to a gym or organised sport feels too much of a commitment, aim for something simpler!
