As the weather turns cooler and the kids head back to school, September always feels like a good time to turn over a new leaf.

We’ve put together a summary of Hapi-life resources to help build some good habits and improve your wellbeing. We may be too old to pack up our pencil cases for a new school year, but it’s never too late for a fresh start.

Mental wellbeing

Top tips to reduce stress

We all experience stress as part of daily life. It’s our body’s natural response when we feel under threat – from life and death situations to an overdue library book. But too much stress can be harmful, see our top tips to help get this under control.

Get a good night’s sleep

Increased stress and anxiety can have a knock-on effect on our sleep. In a recent survey, almost two-thirds (64%) of the 500 respondents said they were sleeping less due to worry over the COVID-19 situation. Whether you struggle to fall asleep or keep waking up, try these 10 tips for a restful night’s sleep.

Financial wellbeing

Facing up to financial fears

Are you scared to check your bank balance? Money worries keeping you up at night? You’re not alone – many of us suffer from paralysing anxiety about our finances but don’t know how to tackle the problem. Facing up to your fears is the first step in taking control of the situation. Here’s five tips on how to get started.

Save money on your supermarket shop

Supermarkets are experts at getting us to part with our hard-earned cash, and we often end up buying more food than we need. This waste costs the average UK family with children £720 worth of food a year… that’s £60 a month!

This can be prevented by buying less in the first place and being smarter about using up food in the home.

Social wellbeing
