A study commissioned by the nutritional brand, A.Vogel has revealed that on average adults feel stressed for five and a half years of their life. Running late for work and traffic jams, were some of the reasons that people are feeling the strain for more than 15 hours a week. Home hunters seeking to reduce their stress levels need look no further than Countryside’s Kingsbridge development in Headcorn, Kent, with excellent commuting links to London and a range of amenities within walking distance.
