National Stress Awareness Day

16 Apr

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –


Today April 16th is a day that Bacon’s mom can definitely wrap her arms around – National Stress Awareness Day.  This day was created in 1992 sponsored by  the Health Resource Network (HRN). They started this holiday to increase public awareness of the causes and cures of stress.  And we all know that stress can come from a variety of different reasons:  paying bills, work, children, schedules, car problems, friends – you name it and stress can come from it.  And here in the United States with taxes being due yesterday, what better day to have this holiday then today?

Today is the day to acknowledge that you are stressed out and then do something about it.  Go for a walk.  Try some meditation.  Try some exercise.  Do some yoga.  Just lay down and relax.  Just for a bit, don’t concentrate on the wrongs in your life but concentrate on the things that you have to be grateful for.  Shrug off this stress even if it is just for today.  I know this afternoon me and Bacon are going to try yoga.  Wish us luck – his downward pig pose is not something I’m looking forward to – chitter chatter!

      That does sound amazing my friend. I think mom would sneak a couple of more friends home with her at the end of the day – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    I had my stress relief massage Thursday and am still all chilled out from it. I heard Mom and Dad talking about vacation, so they are definitely planning their stress relief, too.

      Squeals! My mom/dad are discussing a vacation soon as well. It should be interesting for sure. XOXO – Bacon

    Excellent advice-have a great time at yoga! We left our stresses with the lawyers when I left the firm. They seem better at dealing with it and certainly more deserving. 😉

      OMP! I can only imagine that my friend. We tried to destress this weekend and think of vacation plans. Now that is going to be a blast what mom/dad is thinking. But I can tell anything yet. Snorts! XOXO – Bacon

      Well there you go – we are all trying to learn how to let stress go and not worry about things. It’s hard to remember to do that some times. XOXO – Bacon

    Writing things down helps me but I rather like the idea of the downward pig pose. ❤

      Snorts with piggy laughter. That is indeed one of my favorite poses Auntie Sharon. XOXO – Bacon
