When is it?
National Stress Awareness Day runs on the 5th of November 2014.
What's The Aim Of National Stress Awareness Day?
It’s all about finding a good balance between work, play and lifestyle. Today’s fast past lifestyles fit in more daily activities in 24 hours than we did even 10 years ago. The more activities we try and fit into our daily lifestyles, the higher the risk we run of suffering with stress and anxiety. Today we highlight the need for finding the right treatment that best suits your needs and providing you with some ideas tips on how to manage your stress and anxiety.
What is stress and why do we struggle to Control it?
- Stress is the result of anything that interferes with the picture in your head. By nature, we automatically frame experiences according to our own values and customs and a panic attack can occur as a natural reaction if something does not work out how we thought it would.
- Stress can be triggered by a multitude of factors, some we can control, some we cannot. We respond to instances that happen around us, whether they be in the form of work, family commitments, financial difficulties, friends, colleagues, phobias etc.
- There’s no cure for stress. Stress and anxiety is dependent on our surrounding environment and on the individual as well. We all react, think and perceive things differently. Stress is a psychological issue and not a scientific one.
- You can’t prepare for stress properly. Each day is different; sometimes we may feel on top of the world, ready to handle anything, sometimes we feel like everything is getting on top of us. Physical energy and moods shift daily depending on the situations around us and therefore we react differently to those instances.
- Be kind to yourself. Finding the right solution for you is a decision each one of us has to make as it will be different for everyone.
A few tips on how to manage and relieve stress
- Find an activity that isn’t a chore - running, going to the cinema, socialising/speaking with a friend, write a diary, have a warm bath, go to the gym.
- Focus on healthy eating and aim to undertake 30 minutes of physical activity five times a week , exercise and healthy foods can have a positive effect on daily mental and physical health.
- Reduce the amount of times you may check your emails, messages per day, change your focus from what you can’t control to what you can
- Don’t stress over your stress. Take time to understand what can control and start from there. Talk to a colleague, friend, someone that you trust, to see how they would approach the situation.
