Mental health, and how to manage the stresses of modern life

A friend of mine recently had some problems with anxiety, and their mental health. The pressures of modern life, along with the insecurities we are all confronted with got to him. He is doing much better now thankfully.  Whilst everyone can suffer of course, in particular we men are not good at owning up to these problems. At least society is now starting to realise that mental health problems are just an illness like a physical one, and can be treated. The stigma is starting to fade away. Exercise is a start when trying to avoid problems – one of my “pressure releases” is to walk the office dog – Lola. Here she is on one of our favourite walks.  What do you do to manage the stress?
