April is all about Stress Awareness and here at Fusion Occupational Health we want to encourage everyone to understand stress and how to deal with it in a more effective way.
So, What is stress?
On many occasions now, being stressed is part of our normal life. We all know what it is like to feel stressed. The demands we place on ourselves or have placed on us like work, relationships and money problems can make us feel stressed and that stress gets in the way of sorting out these demands or can even affect everything you do.

Positive thinking is about approaching life’s challenges with a positive outlook. It involves making the most of the potentially bad situations, trying to see the best in other people and looking at yourself and your abilities in a positive light. It does not mean that you see the world through rose-coloured glasses or that you ignore or gloss over negative aspects of your life.
Is your glass half full or half empty? Your answer is affected by your positive or negative outlook. A positive outlook can aid stress management and even play an important role in your overall health and well-being. It influences how you feel about yourself, how you perceive different situations and how you react to most events in your life.

This blog is all about looking after your heart and ensuring that your ticker is in tip top shape!
What does your heart do?
You know that your heart is a pump that keeps blood moving around your body. It delivers oxygen and nutrients to all parts of your body and then takes away unwanted carbon dioxide and waste products, so it’s an extremely important part of your wellbeing. Each day, your heart beats around 100,000 times. This continuously pumps about five litres (eight pints) of blood around your body through a network of blood vessels called your circulatory system.
