Monthly Mental Health Tip

April Mental Health Tip

Stress Awareness is one of the many observances for the month of April.  I consider stress to be the manifestation of how we process distress or challenges in our lives, as well as those situations that can overwhelm us. Stress can also be a manifestation of how we manage our day-to-day responsibilities. Stress can manifest in feeling overwhelmed, anxious, irritable, and fatigued.

Mental Health Tip: This month make a list of the things that contribute to stress in your life. Once you have created that list, make a strategy plan for how you will address each item. For instance, if managing household duties is a source of stress. Create a chore list and assign a different chore each day to the other members of your household. If you live alone, you can create a daily chore schedule to break the household duties into manageable items or if you can afford to, hire someone to help you with household chores. Also, try out different relaxation techniques to help manage stress. These could be things like taking a leisurely walk, meditation, or just sitting quietly for a few minutes. You can also test out a few relaxation methods to determine what will work for you.
