National Stress Awareness Day April 16 th

National stress awareness day

In these days of pandemic, one urgently needs some kind of self enhancing humor.

Social media is flooded with memes,jokes and GIFs to lower the level of anxiety.

“Love knows no borders, neither do people with coronavirus,”

Some say this is not the time for laughter.

By watching these Gifs,jokes or memes etc, don’t get angry and add more stress !!

Using art and humor is one of the ways to calm the tense mind.

National stress awareness day is celebrated across USA ( 16 th April ) and it’s so apt in the present day situation.

April month is also said to be National Stress Awareness Month.May be… the day and month can differ in each country, I am not sure.

What is stress ?

In a medical or biological context stress is a physical, mental, or emotional factor that causes bodily or mental tension. Stresses can be external (from the environment, psychological, or social situations) or internal (illness, or from a medical procedure). Stress can initiate the “fight or flight” response, a complex reaction of neurologic and endocrinologic systems. Source Medicinenet.com
