National Stress Awareness Month – Find out how to destress and promote a less stress inducing lifestyle

Yes I know another awareness month. Something to make my father blow a gasket as my mother would say.

But in this case thain is to try and prevent the poor old soul from blowing a gasket.  Why?  Well as the title of this blog post suggests this month is National Stress Awareness Month.  Which has in fact been running for over 20 years now.

Eliminating stress from our lives is of vital importance.  The medical consequences of stress can include low fertility, irritable bowel syndrome, heart attacks, strokes , peptic ulcers and even make your asthma worse.

So as you can see we do really need to chillax for the good of our health. We have covered a the signs  and symptoms of stress in the past at a previous post which might be of interest

We would also recommend a great article on National Stress Awareness Month from Beliefnet where they share 10 great reasons to celebrate National Stress Awareness Month –

We have produced a graphic below which we hope you will share to promote National Stress Awareness Month.

Finally please feel free to share any stress busting tips in the comments section below.

Thanks very much.

We thought the most useful thing would be to find out a bit more about our readers.  It would be great if you could take part in our poll below.  We are interested to know what medical conditions you suffer from.  Please note that you can add more condition to the poll if you do not see one which describes you.
