Breathing techniques to manage stress and anxiety


Breathing, we all do it, but how conscious are we of how we breathe and the effects it has on us?

Because your breath directly controls your nervous system, it is the remote control to instantly calm your brain and body.

Come along and spend some time learning about what happens in the body when you breathe and practice some techniques that can be used to calm the brain and body.

With World Mental Health Day fast approaching in October, we want to highlight Staff Wellbeing Kickstart week as a time to remind ourselves about our wellbeing.

We want to emphasise the importance of wellbeing in the workplace and encourage everyone to consider their own wellbeing and the things they need to help themselves thrive. Diverse activities contribute to our wellbeing, therefore we are making a range of events available to support you and kick-start your ongoing wellbeing action plan.
