De-stress by taking a walk

A change of atmosphere can be a helpful way to reduce your stress levels, especially if you work in an office or are indoors all day.

Walking is a form of exercise. It will increase blood circulation and release endorphins, the feel-good hormones. This can help to improve your mood and leave you feeling more refreshed and energised to handle the challenges of the rest of the day.
