Stress Awareness Month

Stress Awareness

April is Stress Awareness Month, a time to acknowledge the profound impact stress can have on our lives and to take proactive steps toward effective management. Stress is a common experience for many, affecting not only our mental and emotional well-being but also our physical health. According to the American Psychological Association stress levels are on the rise across all age ranges up by 15% in some categories.  A full quarter of the US population is experiencing stress.

Understanding Stress

Stress is the body’s natural response to demands or threats, whether real or perceived. While acute stress can be beneficial in certain situations, chronic stress can take a toll on our health and well-being over time. Fight or flight response in the body was meant for short burst of danger, but today many of us live in a constant state of fight or flight.  This leads to physical manifestations such as headaches, shortness of breath, fatigue, and muscle tension, as well as emotional and behavioral indicators like irritability, anxiety, and changes in sleep patterns.
