Ways To Celebrate Stress Awareness Day This Year

Jul 18, 2008
This year to help celebrate Stress Awareness Month try sending out free e-cards to colleagues or friends alike. E cards make celebrating Stress Awareness Month that bit easier in April, as with e-cards you no longer have to worry about going to the shop and buying a card, but you can log onto the internet and send a free e-card.

April has been named Stress Awareness Month since 1993, courtesy of the Health Resource Network, which also sponsors Stress Awareness Day. The date of Stress Awareness Day was chosen for a reason: taxes are due on April 15th, and completing the forms on time is enough to stress anyone out!

Stress, a term for the physical and mental symptoms caused by conflicts and specific problems, may be considered a fact of life, but according to statistics collected in highly industrialized countries, it almost qualifies as an epidemic.

There are infinite possibilities for what causes stress, from over-working to having excessive demands on your time. Not only does stress diminish productivity, motivation, and concentration, result in chronic physical manifestations such as headaches, but also saps energy.

Being stressed out, which translates into tense, angry, and/or despondent behavior, negatively affects your mental and physical health, which is why the focus of Stress Awareness Day is educating people about how to deal with stress to avoid its dangerous consequences.

To most effectively deal with the stress factors in your life, the Health Resource Network recommends that you identify the precise issues that are causing you frustration or pain, for example relationship anxiety, work-related pressures, and having too many simultaneous commitments.

By getting to the root of those specific problems, you can literally dismantle the stress that you experience bit by bit.

When you find yourself becoming anxious, edgy, or unhappy due to the external factors in your life, such as interaction with the people around you, your routine and obligations, try to figure out exactly what is bothering you and find a way to fix those problems instead of escaping from them by turning your attention elsewhere.

Ignoring a problem, no matter how insignificant often leads to its persistence. So deal with stress, and have a relaxing Stress Awareness Day!

A similar observance, called National Stress Awareness Day, is observed in Britain on November 1st.

A person experiencing continual stress is more likely to smoke cigarettes, consume more than a casual amount of alcohol, overeat, or commit suicide. Stress also can be a significant factor in the development of heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes, and have negative impact on the immune system.

Millions of people send free e-cards each year, and now loads of people celebrate Stress Awareness Month by sending free e-cards. You no longer have to worry about running out of ink, or leaving it to late to send your card, as all you have to do is type your message and click send. Then your free e-card will arrive almost instantly to its recipient. Free e-cards truly are the easiest way to celebrate any holidays or birthdays.
