Stressed, Worried or Low?

Stressed, worried, or low?

Are you feeling stressed, worried or low? Nottinghamshire County Council provides a range of services designed to help anyone experiencing such feelings.

Top tips for emotional wellbeing:

  • Connect with people around you! Spend time with family and friends and really listen to what they are saying. You could give someone a call rather than sending a text. What about chatting to someone new at work?
  • Be active! Regular physical activity can help lift you if you are feeling down and reduce stress levels. You could go for a brisk walk, play football with your children, or take up dancing.
  • Keep learning! Learning new things can be enjoyable. It can also give us a sense of achievement. Why not try learning a new language or instrument, or start that hobby you’ve always talked about doing.
  • Give to others! Giving to others can help us and others to feel good! Small gestures count, like a smile or a kind word, or helping someone to fix a problem. You may want to do something regularly for your local community, in which case you could think about volunteering.
  • Take notice of what is happening right here, right now! Life can be busy and we can find ourselves rushing around or trying to do several things at once. Being in the present moment can help us notice our feelings and thoughts and can increase our awareness of our environment. Why not cook your favourite meal and use all of your senses to fully enjoy how it looks, smells and tastes.
