Hints and Tips on how to beat Stress

Redundancy affects people in different ways. Some are able to cope but others experience problems so what can you do?

Taking Control:

When stress takes over, ordinary challenges can look like threats and serious events can seem unbearable.

Just Remember:

  • You can't always change the world around you, but you can change your reaction to it.

  • Focusing on the negatives, predicting the worst and blaming yourself or others can all take their toll.

  • Give yourself a break.


  • Instead of thinking: "It's all over and there's nothing I can do about it."
    Try thinking: "How can I attack the problem in manageable pieces."

  • Instead of thinking: "I should be able to handle it"
    Try thinking: "I need some support to get through this, who can I go to?"

Look After Yourself:

  • Some form of exercise, even walking can get your body's defences working and help to bring stress levels down.

  • A good balanced diet is essential when you are feeling stressed

  • Take time to do things you enjoy - spending all your time worrying will only wear you down further and leave you less able to cope.

  • Give yourself things to look forward to - even a few hours out of the usual routine can give you a sense of perspective.

Get Support:

Seeking support from other people can be key to getting through stressful situations. Ironically, your reaction when under stress can often be to withdraw from those who might offer the most support. Even worse, stressful times can put a strain on the relationships you most depend on.

Why does talking help?

Talking openly about how you really feel can be like opening a door. Talking puts you back in control and reveals the choices you have. Many people feel pressured into hiding their feelings out of embarrassment or concern not to burden family or friends. But hiding under a calm exterior only saves the problem for later and stress can build up until it becomes unbearable. Don't leave it that long. Remember your emotional health is your responsibility and Samaritans is there to help whatever time of the day or night.

Taking the time to talk things through with someone else can be an important step to seeing your way clear of a stressful situation. Friends, family members and work associates can allow you to let off steam. Common solutions can start to become clear. Either way, talking to someone will help you realise that you are not on your own and help to reduce tension.


If you don't feel you can turn to anyone close to you, you might find it useful to talk to Samaritans in confidence. Samaritans is available 24 hours, every day of the year, to listen for as long as you need to talk. Samaritan volunteers come from all walks of life, and won 't ever advise or judge.
