Helping Men with Stress and Distress
Do you feel as if your mind or body are over-stretched? Is getting through the day an uphill struggle?
As demands pile up, do small problems feel too much? Are you trying harder but achieving less?
Were you just about getting by day-to-day until something unexpected tipped you over: maybe job stress, unemployment, a personal loss, illness…..?
- Are tension and worry using up energy?
- Do you feel wound up, can’t relax or focus?
- Is sleep patchy, or unrefreshing?
- Do you find you’re over-reacting to small things?
- Started drinking or a smoking more?
- Are negative thoughts preying on your mind?
Long before stress makes us ill, it can cause tension and tiredness and it affects emotions, so relationships become trickier. We see the world through how we feel, so everything seems gloomier or unsafe. Thinking isn’t so sharp. We lose our edge
The Atlas Men’s Stress Service has ideas for making sense of how you’re feeling, and techniques for tackling stress-related pain and tension. We are able to offer counselling from a counsellor who specialises in men’s stress and distress as well as acupuncture, all free of charge at our branch surgery in Lees Place. This is because it is funded by charitable donations. You will need to be referred by one of our doctors, so if you see yourself being affected by some of these symptoms, why not make an appointment today
