Stress Awareness Month


Stress Awareness Month

Today sees the end of 2020’s Stress Awareness Month, running since 1992, and there’s never been a more crucial time to be aware of your own stress levels and those of the people around you.

The current coronavirus epidemic sees many of us isolating in our homes, away from friends and family and having to deal with things that, only a couple of months ago, we never could have imagined.

Some of you will be worried about your own physical health, or maybe the physical health of family members and loved ones, whilst others will be worried about the financial impact all of this is having.  Others will simply be struggling with the change in routine and having to adapt in such a short period of time.

It’s all too easy to be consumed with the news and social media and slip into a state of stress and worry.

This is where Stress Awareness Month comes into play; the recommendation is to choose one action every day that will help with physical, mental and emotional well-being.
