If you live a stressful, busy, and constantly on-the-go life, then following these steps will help diminish those stressors by improving your physical, mental, and emotional health, thus making you a priority again.
The key to minimizing unhelpful stress is to first become aware of it. We can not change what we can not see.
Stress awareness month always confused me. Aren't we always hyperaware of how stressed we are? What we may not realize is how stress affects us.
We set up a tracking poll in February to gauge the current level of stress among the U.S. adult population on an ongoing basis. Now, as National Stress Awareness Month draws to a close, we wanted to see what our polling database could tell us about stress and its related factors.
As our minds are still grappling with the horror of the Boston bombings, and our hearts are still hurting for the victims and their loved ones, there is something we can do today to help the lives of children around the world. Today is the day that, since 2007, has been designated by the shoe company TOMS as "One Day Without Shoes." TOMS has donated 2 million pairs of shoes to children in more than 50 countries worldwide, and their tagline, "Leave Your Footprint," reflects how much we as individuals can be part of something bigger than ourselves. And that's not the only issue one can take action on today. At work, at home, and beyond, we are facing an epidemic of stress. National Stress Awareness Day is an opportunity to reflect on the things that cause you stress and the methods you can use to course-correct.
