 4 ways to help with stress

Give Yourself a Break   Image result for stop
When we have a long to-do list, it can be tempting to remain rooted in one place, working non stop.Stand up and move around every hour. Make sure to take the time to eat lunch. Use your break to relax or take a stroll outside.  



BreatheImage result for breathe
Take a minute to clear your mind and concentrate on your breathing. Place your hand on your belly and either feel the rise and fall as you inhale and exhale. Studies have shown that awareness of breathing can greatly reduce one of the stress hormones. 
Focus on one task at a time

Set multitasking aside in favour of focusing on a single task or activity at a time. You might find that you accomplish more by seeing ones single task through from beginning to end than you would when you try to complete several things at one. You will make fewer mistakes,too!      

Stop and smell the flowers Image result for smell the flowers

The world is filled with beauty. Stop and take time to appreciate the warmth of the sun or even the sound of the rain or how about that perfect parking spot!! By incorporating gratitude for the small wonders of your daily routine, you may find yourself better equipped to handle the stressors you may face along the way.

HAVE SOME INFLUENCE 
 AND HELP COLLEAGUES AT THE SAME TIME

Workplace stewards are the heart of our trade union. UNISON’s stewards are the reason we win campaigns that result in better lives for our members and all working people. Stewards help to organise your colleagues into an effective, strong and welcoming membership. They:

  • Are the first point of contact for members in a workplace
  • Talk to members about the union
  • Talk to staff about their issues
  • Offer advice on issues at work
  • Represent members in cases (including at disciplinary and grievance hearings).
  • Campaign for better working conditions
  • Recruit and organise new members
  • Encourage more members to get active in UNISON
  • Raise your members’ issues with the branch.

Stewards in workplaces where UNISON is recognised by the employer have rights to take time for training and to carry out their work.

Stewards have a right to be involved in how their branch is run and are the most important link between the members and the union.

UNISON aims to have at least one steward in each workplace and department, more in larger departments and where members work shifts.

Stewards are elected each year by the group of members that they represent and the post is open to job share

Please give it some thought.  We know you are all really busy and under pressure but we need your help and the more stewards we have the more we can spread the work across the county so each steward only has a small amount to do.

Union membership for Agency Workers

An agency worker is entitled to join a trade union. A trade union can:

  • provide support and advice on a wide range of issues

  • provide a representative to accompany the agency worker to a grievance or disciplinary hearing

  • collectively consult with the agency where the union is recognised.

Agency workers must not be treated unfairly by their agency because they are a member or non­ member of a trade union.
