Raising Awareness for Stress Awareness Month: Small Actions, Big Impact

April is Stress Awareness Month, and at Jenks & Cattell Engineering, we’re committed to promoting mental well-being among our employees. This year, we’ve taken a proactive approach by gifting each employee a Jenks & Cattell stress ball—a tangible reminder to prioritise self-care. We have shared posters to encourage our employees to explore the small yet powerful actions that can collectively create a positive impact on our mental health, and we would like to share this further afield with you.

  1. Connect with Someone

Human connection is essential for our emotional resilience. Whether it’s a friendly chat with a colleague, a virtual coffee break with a friend, or a heartfelt conversation with family, reaching out to others can alleviate stress. Let’s break down the walls of isolation and build bridges of support.

  1. Get Moving

Physical activity isn’t just about fitness; it’s a natural stress buster. Encourage yourself to move—whether it’s a brisk walk during lunchtime, a few yoga stretches, or dancing to your favourite tunes. Movement releases endorphins, lifts our spirits, and clears our minds.

  1. Nature Therapy

Step outside and embrace the healing power of nature. Even a short walk or a moment spent admiring the sky can rejuvenate our senses. Nature provides solace, reduces anxiety, and reminds us of life’s simple beauty.

  1. Breathe Deeply

In the hustle and bustle of work, we often forget to breathe mindfully. Take a pause. Inhale deeply, hold, and exhale slowly. Repeat. This simple practice calms our nervous system, reduces tension, and centres our thoughts.

  1. Practice Mindfulness

Mindfulness is about being fully present in the moment. Set aside a few minutes each day for meditation, mindful breathing, or simply observing your surroundings without judgment. It’s like a mental reset button—a way to navigate stress gracefully.


At Jenks & Cattell Engineering, we believe that small actions can create significant ripples. By connecting, moving, spending time in nature, breathing deeply, and practicing mindfulness, we contribute to a healthier workplace and a happier community. Let us carry these practices beyond Stress Awareness Month—because every day is an opportunity to prioritise well-being.

Remember, together, we make a difference—one stress ball, one deep breath, and one mindful moment at a time.
