We have had our stress awareness day at Bluebird Care Northumberland South where we hired a health and fitness consultant to come in to the office for 3 hours. 7 members of staff came along to receive a free massage. Others also turned up during the day to sit, relax and have a chat.

    

During our day we provided cakes, chocolates and hot drinks.
 
We handed out leaflets and posters to everyone who attended which shows them how to spot stress, how to deal with stress and also which professionals to contact if they were feeling stressed. Literature was provided to us by the Northumberland Specialist Health Improvement Service so we appreciate the help.

This was a fantastic day in the office. It was a great opportunity for our workers to come into ‘stress awareness day’ and take a break from struggles of everyday life and work.
The feedback from staff was that we have this on an on-going basis as they felt so relaxed after the massage compared to beforehand. (Download FEEDBACK FORMS).

Having a health professional talk to them on an individual basis has educated the workers to now wanting to exercise and stretch as they can see the health benefits within the small period of time they had for their massages.
 
A huge thanks to Sue Clarke from Sue Clark Health & Fitness for taking the time out to spend with our team this morning.
