Did you watch “The Truth About Stress” on BBC 1 on Thursday night?
The World Health Organisation has described stress as ‘the health epidemic of the 21st century’. In this programme, Fiona Phillips wants to understand why we are experiencing increased amounts of stress in our lives and what actions we can take to reduce it.
Fiona speaks openly about her own experience of stress and her desire to find better coping mechanisms in the hope of improving her health and happiness. A key question driving Fiona’s discovery is whether some types of stress might be good for us and drive us towards better performance and confidence at work and a healthier approach to the pressure and stress we might face at home. Fiona investigates this latest scientific thinking and learns how to turn stress into a weapon rather than a woe, simply by changing the way we perceive it. The program reveals exciting new research about stress that could help us to lose weight – particularly those suffering from diabetes or obesity.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are looking at the same statistics and starting to look at trends in the industry.
