As Mental Health Awareness Week draws to a close again, now is the perfect time to think about your mental health and the wellbeing of others.
The theme this year is ‘Anxiety’. Anxiety has become one of the most talked about topics in mental health. And while it is a normal emotion in us all, it can sometimes get out of control and become a mental health problem. It can become problematic if it is persistent over a long period of time, is overwhelming, or stops us from doing things we want or need to do.
According to the Mental Health Foundation (MHF), anxiety levels amongst the population increased throughout the pandemic and have not yet dropped to pre-pandemic levels. Based on the MHF’s report from March this year, 73% of the population had felt anxious at least sometimes in the previous two weeks, with 20% anxious most or all of the time.
There are many coping strategies that people use to manage anxiety. Looking after our physical health by moving more and eating healthily, talking to people we trust, using relaxation techniques and making sleep a priority are all highly recommended.
Everyone’s experiences of anxiety are different, and the causes can be complicated too. We can’t tackle anxiety by only focusing on remedies for individuals – national and local policymakers must prioritise actions to promote good mental health for all.
That said, when it comes to managing stress, anxiety, improving sleep and boosting your mood, there are a few products that can help.
