It’s #NationalStressAwarenessDay and TIGERS Ltd recognise the importance of this hashtag.
In the office today, we discussed about stress awareness in great depth. How can we be involved and carry this on? One thing we all recognised was one main important thing talking. A problem shared is a problem halved. We do not necessarily have to solve the problem, but if we discuss our worries then we could offer advice or could be as simple as just we there to listen.
We pride ourselves in helping young people. TIGERS Ltd recognise that an awareness of mental health and anxiety are extremely important. Therefore, we can learn and improve by understanding mental health and our young people. It can be as simple as sharing our stresses and concerns, or going for a walk and breathing in that good Scottish fresh air. All we can do is try new things, build relationships and offer help.
John Gibson, Managing Director of TIGERS Ltd, stated “It’s quality over quantity. If there are ways we can try and look into helping young people then we should take the time and really learn how can we be different and move forward.”
Today, Tigers Ltd during training, each trainee shared a problem they have had this week to try and de-stress. This seems simple but effective. By doing this exercise we hope young people can recognise that a problem shared is a problem halved. We also hope young people recognise we all have problems, we are human, we are all the same in some way. So have a cuppa tea and talk about what is making you anxious today and hopefully your problem does not seem as big as you thought.
