Methods Used to De-stress - Emotional Wellbeing
In the modern day, many would say learning how to de-stress is very important and across the nation it appears we use a range of methods and activities to do so (according to our National Health Report).
The majority of us will watch TV (55%) however women are more likely to use friends as a way to de-stress with 36% of women saying they would spend time with their friends compared to only 26% of men. Worryingly, just over 1 in 5 (22%) of people in the UK drink alcohol to de-stress, rising to 27% for men compared to 18% of women. However, perhaps the most concerning finding is that 3% admit to taking recreational drugs to de-stress.
