We're not buying it - stress

13 million working days are lost to stress each year in the UK.

We’re not buying it and we’re asking the industry not to buy stress too. 

Stress is an inevitable aspect of life, but it is increasingly getting out of hand for many and can lead to damaging physical and mental consequences. Stress bottle 250px.jpg

A common place where stress is caused is in the workplace with reports suggesting that most workers work longer hours than their contracted week, with 37% reporting they work more than 48 hours per week and many taking work home and working at weekends.

How does GroceryAid help people with stress issues?
