April: Stress Awareness Month

blog-imgStress has become a modern epidemic over recent years, with many of us struggling to strike a balance within our “always on” culture. April is Stress Awareness Month – an annual event hosted by the Stress Management Society to increase public awareness about both the causes and cures for stress.

According to the Mental Health Foundation, as many as 74% of UK adults have felt so stressed at some point over the last year they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope. Another study conducted by Forth found that 85% of British adults are experiencing stress regularly, and over a third (37%) feel stressed for at least one full day per week.

Recent research from specialist bank Aldermore found that over half (52%) of respondents were made ill by the stress of buying their first home. It’s a time of change, and getting to grips with running and looking after your new home can take its toll. House fires, water leaks and break-ins can also be a significant cause of stress in themselves, without going through the rigmarole of claiming on your insurance premium. With Neos, you have one less thing to worry about.

Neos provides a preventative type of home insurance, that’s actively there for you, with your interests at heart – protecting what matters most in your world. It’s reassuring to know that you can keep an eye on your home when you’re not there – whether you’re going away for a long weekend, or just leaving the dogs alone for a couple of hours.

It takes just two minutes to get a quote, and Neos’ in-app chat service is available 24/7, so you can check in at any time. We offer a range of non-intrusive smart home products that can help to prevent damage to your home, including smoke sensors, leak detectors and security cameras. The Neos SmartCam, for example, enables you to keep an eye on your home, your family, or even the dog at any time through its HD live stream, and will send you alerts should any unusual activity occur.

“It’s just a nice reassuring thing to have especially if we are away. It is also nice to be able to see that our dogs are safe when we are not in and they don’t set off the sensors when they go out of the dog flap. The fire alarm is a great touch as it has a temp sensor which is in our daughters bedroom and she is only 18 months old so it’s nice that we can keep and eye on the temp without having to go in.”

With Neos smart tech, you can be confident in the knowledge that your home is protected, giving you one less thing to worry about, and more time to focus on what matters the most. Our smart tech ensures problems are detected early, before they become a major issue, and we have human assistance on hand, should anything need fixing. We also offer comprehensive insurance, just in case.
