21 Apr Simple Ways to Reduce Stress
Tax day has come and gone. Did you get your taxes filled on time? Is work or school putting on the pressure? Are the kids running you ragged? Is there enough money to pay all of those the bills? There are literally thousands of reasons for you to get stressed out. RELAX!! April is designated as Stress Awareness Month. This is your opportunity to recognize that there is plenty of stress in your life… as if you didn’t already know. More importantly, the month of April is an opportunity to learn, and to do something about the stress before it takes control of your life.
One of the most important things is acknowledging that stress is becoming overwhelming. Take a step back and just breathe. Get up and get moving. Doing any physical movement is a great way to relieve some stress. Another good stress reliever is having a good dose of laughter. Surround yourself by family, friends, or anything that can make you laugh. Find a hobby that you really enjoy and that can be used as an escape when stress becomes too much.
