Anxiety and stress are one of the two main factors that are prevalent in the UK. At Clippy’s we believe we can help to elevate people's stress by combining fun filled activities centred around food, chat and a convivial environment - building habit strategies in order to carry on what they’ve learnt and bring it back to the workplace/community which then helps others to develop healthier food and lifestyle habits. This poignant statistic just shows how many hours are lost due to ill health.

Stress can play a part in problems such as headaches, high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, skin conditions, asthma, arthritis, depression, and anxiety. What are 3 long-term effects of stress on the body? This long-term ongoing stress can increase the risk for hypertension, heart attack, or stroke. Repeated acute stress and persistent chronic stress may also contribute to inflammation in the circulatory system, particularly in the coronary arteries, and this is one pathway that is thought to tie stress to heart attack Did you know cooking can actually help to alleviate stress, so you’re already winning by cooking…book this course to help combat health related absence from work or help to combat health issues in your community.
