APRIL – National Stress Awareness Month 2022
Stress Awareness month has been held every April since 1992 to raise awareness for the causes and concerns of our modern stress epidemic.
How can you help reduce your stress and others?
Talking about stress and its effects can help massively, working together with friends and family and even colleagues to reduce the stigma associated with stress by talking openly and freely whenever it is needed.
Self-care can be a huge part of stress due to not having time to relax and have some time to yourself doing something you enjoy and find calming. Even when feeling stressed you must ensure you eat and exercise and this is so good for the mind as it causes a distraction. Self-care is more important than we realise.
If something has ever helped you reduce your own stress, maybe think about sharing this with others, it could help somebody else with their own stress. This could also benefit you by taking your mind and concentration off your own challenges.
Be more thoughtful to those who are stressed and anxious. Stress can be a very lonely and distressing place when you feel you have nobody to turn to. Always be kind to everyone, but maybe just a little bit more to someone whos struggling.
If you are feeling extremely stressed and need someone to talk to, there is help.
Do not hesitate to contact a helpline or someone to talk to so you can get some things off your mind, that’s what they are there for.
