What is National Stress Awareness Month? We all deal with stress from time to time and no two people handle it the same way. While we’re aware it’s an unpleasant feeling, chances are we aren’t thinking about its impact on our health. April is dedicated to spreading awareness on how the presence of stress can compromise your mental and physical wellbeing.
Why the observance? April has been National Stress Awareness Month since 1992. The goal of this month is to take a moment to think about the level of stress in your life and create a game plan to start reducing it.
