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!

    we will cook together and after a long walk the couch is ours… but to do Yoga together sounds interesting … I hope there is yogurt included too… the one with that tasty vanilla stuff :o)

    I liked to create characters fashioned after someone or something stressful . . .
    so I can kill them, more than once.

    Mom’s know all about stress! Hope your mum will be able to chill-lax a bit and stop playing with the stress monster. It always has the advantage and doesn’t play fair.😇
