April is stress awareness month. We all have experienced stress at sometime in our life but the issue becomes crucial when the stress interferes with our well being. We can maintain our mental and physical health by managing the stress with activities that bring you joy, and or communicating with others about your stress and anxiety.

Managing stress is an essential tool to maintain your health and well being. Stress can cause mental and physical illness if it isn’t handled appropriately.

Take care of yourself and your family. It is also imperative to recognize stress in your children, so you can teach them healthy outlets for managing their stress and anxiety. Currently, healthcare facilities are seeing more children and adolescents with mental health issues than in the past. Many cities have a shortage of mental practitioners and mental health beds.

Seek assistance so you can have well adjusted children, and take care of yourself.
