Stress Awareness Month 2024 - Little by Little

Stress is primarily a physical response in which the body thinks it is under attack and switches to what is know is known as ‘fight or fight’ mode, releasing a complex mix of hormones and chemicals to prepare the body for physical action. 

It is a normal human response, and is not necessarily a bad thing. Without this ability, we wouldn’t be able to detect potential danger. However it is when the body is constantly on high alert that it becomes detrimental to our health.

A Little Self Care Goes a Long Way

The theme for Stress Awareness Month this April Little By Little highlights the transformative impact that consistent, small positive actions can have on over-all wellbeing. These small steps towards self care each day can reduce your stress levels and have a positive impact on your mental and physical wellbeing.

Take time to make manageable adjustments to your daily routine and incorporate some light activity. Get moving in the way you want. Whether it be walking, running, gardening, doing some light stretches or a yoga class. There is no right or wrong. It’s all about what makes you feel good and helps to get those feel good endorphins going.
