Pick of the Day

How to Beat: Stress, 8.00pm, Channel 4

Stress is something we all face at one time or another - during the current crisis, it’s bound to be a major factor in most people’s lives.

Kate Quilton and Dr Javid Abdelmoneim enlist 10 stressed-out volunteers from around the UK, from a firefighter to a paramedic to a chef, to take part in an experiment to see if making simple lifestyle changes can help alleviate stress.

Are hobbies, mindfulness and cutting back the booze and caffeine the simple stress-busting solutions we need?

Work is the most common cause of stress for us in the UK. With 59% of the working population reporting an issue, Kate visits Lego, a company leading the way on employee wellbeing.

Javid shows how spending time in green spaces can reduce anxiety and lower blood pressure, therefore reducing stress levels.

And can the 10 million people in the UK with phobias take heart from a pioneering treatment offered in virtual reality?
