Giving a whole new meaning to ‘casual Friday’, Stress Down Day is a legitimate excuse for you to wear your pyjamas, onesie or favourite Ugg boots to work.
Raising awareness for Lifeline and the impact of stress on our mental health, July 26th is a great reminder of the need to regularly unwind and take a break from our busy lives.
Work is a leading cause of stress for most people, often surfacing as a range of physical, emotional, cognitive and behavioural symptoms. Recognising these signs can be difficult, so it’s important to know your own limit and listen to your body.
This Friday you can show your support by buying a pair of Stress Down Day slippers, making a donation or hosting a stress-free morning tea at your work to have fun, stress less and feel better!
So shrug off those strange looks and dress to ‘stress less’ this Friday.
Stress can often creep up on you. Here are our tips for keeping stress at bay in the workplace:
