You may not already know this but April is Stress Awareness Month, sponsored by The Health Resource Network. It couldn’t come at a better time, with the way the economy is and with taxes due. According to the HRN, this is the 17th consecutive year that Stress Awarness Month is taking place; it’s “a national, cooperative effort to inform people about the dangers of stress, successful coping strategies, and harmful misconceptions about stress that are prevalent in our society.”

Stress can be dangerous. It contributes to heart disease, HBP, strokes, etc. It’s so important not only to learn about stress, but to also do things to reduce it. And what a great coincidence that April is when Spa Week takes place (4/13-4/19). So, learn the facts, take some time for yourself, and get an occasional massage (affordably, I might add). The calmer you are, the better you’ll feel. Just remember…deep breaths.
