Stress Awareness Month – April 2024

Small actions to make big changes

April is Stress Awareness Month ! This year's theme is Little by Little becomes a lot

The theme #LittleByLittle highlights the transformative impact of consistent, small positive actions on over-all wellbeing. For Stress Awareness Month 2024, The Stress Management Society, want to emphasise how even the smallest steps taken each day towards self-care and stress reduction can yield significant improvements in mental health over time.

They encourage you to focus on making manageable adjustments to your daily routine. While the impact of small actions on their own may seem little, the cumulative effects of these habits can end up being profound!

Think of it like building a house – laying down a single brick may not seem significant. You might start small e.g., taking deep breaths during a stressful moment, or writing down one thing you’re grateful for each day.

These actions may seem small but they serve as the foundation of your mental wellbeing. As you continue to add more brick, your mental health house begins to take shape. Each brick represents a conscious choice to prioritize and build your mental health and resilience. They all add strength and stability, making you more resilient to the challenges that life brings.

Overtime, the accumulation of these small consistent efforts leads to a remarkable outcome!

You can reduce some stress by these small actions;
- Connect with someone
- Prioritise Sleep
- Move in your own way
- Spend time in Nature
- Breathe deep
- Practice Mindfulness
