Today is National Stress Awareness Day, reminding us all to take a moment to think about our wellbeing.

YouGov’s study on mental health in 2018 revealed that 74% of people have felt so stressed they have been overwhelmed or unable to cope.

Whilst there are numerous factors as to why you may feel overwhelmed, whether it be work or your personal life, it’s important to find ways to reduce stress factors.

Although seeking advice and support is the most effective way to manage stress, there are also numerous products that can help day-to-day.

Lavender-infused products and herbal Rescue Remedy can help to restore a sense of calm. Meanwhile, weighted blankets and Himalayan salt lamps can help if you’re struggling to sleep due to stress and anxiety.
