Stress awareness day 2013

April is stress awareness month and since 1992 April 16 is celebrated as stress awareness day. This is the day you should take a step back and look at your life and take actions which leads towards a healthier lifestyle.

This is how to celebrate stress awareness day:

1. Prioritize your life
Start your day by doing the most important thing. Don’t get distracted by opening your mail until that’s done.

2. Don’t get stressed if you don’t manage to do all you plan during the day. If you just managed what was most important then that’s enough.

3. Have a careless day.
We have so many must’s in our lives today. At least once a year you should have one day when you don’t have to drop off the kids to soccer practice or go to the post office. Just have some you-time.

Something to keep in mind is that 92% of all the things we worry about never happens. So worrying is mainly just a waste of energy. Statistically you should just kick back and be happy.

One of my favorite stress release exercises is Tense-release-relaxation. Try this simple exercise in bed before going to sleep. You’ll feel great. Also, remember that exercise is one of the best stress busters there are and Nano Workouts are great micro breaks which helps you stay fit and calm.
