Cutting the anxiety for Stress Awareness Month


If you feel stressed, you’re not alone. For better or worse, stress affects 70 percent of Americans on a daily basis. People take the effects of stress for granted, but studies link stress to weight gain, mental health issues and long-term disability.

Stress Awareness Month has been observed every April since 1992. At PA Health & Wellness, we know staying calm is easier said than done. Here’s how to stay calm during hectic times:

• Sweat it out: Exercise boosts your mood.

• Breathe in, breathe out: Relaxation is key to keeping cool.

• Laugh: Genuine laughter reduces stress and fortifies immune systems.
