Reducing the impact of stress

Experiencing high levels of stress can impact the mind and body in various ways, including affecting the ability to sleep, and mood. Long-term stress can increase the risks of cardiovascular disease – hypertension, heart attack, and stroke. Relieving stress has been found to improve sleep quality, help with the control of weight, improve mood, and help with having less muscle tension.
To mark April as Stress Awareness Month, the King’s Health Partners (KHP) Mind & Body Programme has collated a selection of wellbeing resources for staff and students across the partnership.
