Coping with Stress
April 16th is National Stress Awareness Day, which aims to draw attention to the health risks associated with stress and strategies for coping with it. It may seem like there’s nothing you can do about stress, but there are steps you can take to relieve the pressure and regain control.

1: Identify the sources of stress in your life

While it’s easy to identify major stressors such as changing jobs, moving, etc., pinpointing the sources of chronic stress can be more complicated.It’s all too easy to overlook how your own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors contribute to your everyday stress levels. To identify your true sources of stress, look closely at your habits, attitude, and excuses.

2: Practice the 4 A’s of stress management

Avoid unnecessary stress, alter the situation, adapt to the stressor and accept the things you can’t change.

3: Get moving

Physical activity is a huge stress reliever—and you don’t have to be an athlete or spend hours in a gym to experience the benefits. Exercise releases endorphins that make you feel good, and it can also serve as a valuable distraction from your daily worries.

4: Connect to others

Find comfort from loved ones. Call, text, video chat or connect on social media. 


5: Maintain balance with a healthy lifestyle

Eat healthy! Good nutrition will keep your body and mind energized.
