Stress Awareness Month in April reminds us to manage stress for our overall well-being. Recognizing the presence of stress proactively helps us identify its causes and gives us a chance to use healthy ways to cope. One of the best ways to reduce the effects of stress is to engage in self-care.

There is a large variety of activities to choose from to aid in melting the stress away:

  • Physical: Exercise, eat well, sleep enough, and practice hygiene.
  • Relaxation: Take breaks and enjoy hobbies, leisure activities, and time in nature.
  • Emotional: Journaling, mindfulness, and setting healthy boundaries.
  • Intellectual: Read, learn new things, engage in creativity.
  • Social: Spend time with loved ones, join groups, and make social plans.
  • Spiritual: Practice gratitude, engage in spiritual activities, and connect with nature.
