4th November is National Stress Awareness Day.
What is stress?
“Stress is the feeling of being under too much mental or emotional pressure.”
Pressure turns into stress when you feel unable to cope. People have different ways of reacting to stress! Many aspects of life can cause stress, such as work, relationships and money issues.
Stress can affect how you think, feel, behave and your body. Some common signs of stress are; sleeping problems, sweating, loss of appetite and struggling to concentrate.
How to manage stress?
Stress can cause serious illness if it’s not dealt with. Recognising the symptoms will help you make ways to cope with how you feel.
There isn’t much you can do to prevent stress, but you can manage it more effectively by learning how to relax, time management techniques or regular exercise.
