Stress can be a serious health and happiness killer. Although pressure is an inevitable part of life, it can be more manageable if we learn how to reduce and regulate it in healthy ways. Today is Stress Awareness Day which serves as a reminder to us to be more aware of the stress in our lives and how it affects us.

2 Life-Changing Ways to Celebrate Stress Awareness Day

Here are two powerful, life-changing ways you can celebrate Stress Awareness Day today:

#1. Remove a daily stressor.

Is there something in your everyday existence that is bringing you an unnecessary level of anxiety, tension, and unhappiness? Can you cut this stressor out of your life? You can walk away from a toxic relationship. You can change your job if it makes you miserable. If disorganization is making your work life stressful, you can take a course to strengthen your organizational skills. What can you change about your life today to make it less stressful?

#2. Take time out.

Celebrate today by investing in a pamper day unapologetically all about you. Schedule a massage, book in for a spa day, or take the day off if you can. Do something that makes you feel relaxed, and make a pact with yourself to make space for a little me time in your life, every week, moving forward.
