NHS Borders will be running a series of weekly classes throughout November to give people practical advice on managing stress.
The free classes are being run in Hawick in the form of hour long sessions.
Classes will take place at Hawick Library on November 5, 12, 19 and 26 from 5.30–6.30pm. The classes are free to everyone, however booking is essential. To book, contact Hawick Library by telephone on 01450 364640.
Sinead Murray, clinical associate in applied psychology and one of the organisers of the programme, said: “Stress is a commonly experienced problem.
“Feeling under pressure whilst managing life’s everyday challenges can lead to problems such as disturbed sleep, an inability to relax, feeling tense, anxious or irritable, persistent worrying or loss of self-confidence.”
