Are you stressed?

Are you stressed?

Here's a little Stress Questionnaire that you can try for yourself. Of course, we are all different in how we experience stress, handle it, cope with it and manage it. There are no right and wrong answers and it can be small and the bigger things in life than cause us stress. 


Stress can affect our physical and mental health as well as impact our relationships, work, ability to sleep or relax, our appetite, our libido, our ability to focus, concentrate or be motivated and many other things.

Stress is a big deal and the quicker you addres it, the sooner you begin to reduce stress and manage any future stresors in a helpful, constructive way. Try the questionnaire below and if you need someone to talk to or are looking for some support with reducing and managing stress, get in touch with us - we are here to help, listen, encourage and support.

Best wishes, 

Alexandra

BODY IMAGE AND BODY DYSMORPHIC DISORDER: What is it?

BODY IMAGE AND BODY DYSMORPHIC DISORDER
As we said yesterday, this week in Mental Health Awareness Week 2019. This is a national awareness week and the theme this year is Body Image.
See Monday's post to see what we are doing this week. We will also be posting everyday this week on Facebook, Twitter and the blog about Body Image and BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder).
Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), or body dysmorphia, is a mental health condition related to Body Image where a person spends a lot of time worrying about flaws in their appearance. These flaws are often unnoticeable to others.
People of any age can have BDD and it affects anyone of any gender or sex.
Having BDD does not mean you are vain or self-obsessed. It can be very upsetting and have a big impact on your life. Low mood, anxiety, emotional dysregulation, stress, trauma, self-harm and eating disorders are some of the other conditions that can co-occur with BDD.
Some of the symptoms of BDD include:
