Stress Awareness Month is 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”
Signs of Stress: Constantly overwhelmed, Strained relationships, Poor work performance, Overly emotional, Insomnia and fatigue , Headaches and backaches , Little things often set you off.
Coping Strategies: Set realistic goals and do what you know you can achieve. Take one task at a time: Divide your projects into smaller ones and do them little by little, also make “to do” lists. Go easy on criticism: try not to expect to much of yourself or others and try not to feel let down or frustrated when expectations are not met. Manage your anger: Cool down before you say or do something that you will regret. Learn to relax or meditate: Taking 10 to 20 minutes to relax and clear your head could be exactly what you need to calm your nerves and increase your tolerance to stress. Avoid competition: Excessive competition can cause physical and emotional damage to yourself, as well as work or school work. Talk it out with someone you care about: Talking about how your feeling to someone can help you clear those negative thoughts and become emotionally stable again. 44% of kids listen to music, 26% eat, and 22% talk to their parents to help reduce stress. Eating 1.4 ounces of dark chocolate everyday for two weeks has shown to reduce stress. Take this month to relax and gather your thoughts. Step away before you act on situations and allow your feelings to calm down. When a break is needed, take one. This month is all about listening to your body and reducing the amount of tension you are placing on it physically and emotionally. or more information Contact St.James-Santee Family Health Center at 843-887-3274, 843-436-1333, 843-527-7533 or 843-545-8723
