How To Reduce Stress Levels: 1 Stress Trigger We Often Don’t Consider

April is stress month…and after all those March Madness games I get it!

Self-leadership Skill: How to reduce stress levels

Seriously, April is all about managing our stress and while many of you are thinking, “Why only a month for something that happens all year long?” I thought I’d take a quick minute to share a main contributor to our stress that we often don’t consider.

Hey, there. AmyK here.

Since 1992, April has been Stress Awareness Month, and I don’t know if you can see the reflection in the fireplace, but Moose is clearly not stressed out today.

I wanted to take a moment to talk about a different perspective on stress and to give you something to think about.

One of the biggest causers and contributors to stress is when we are avoiding something, whether it’s a conversation, a meeting, our taxes or some type of task or activity that we have to do, the longer that we avoid dealing with something, the more stress that happens in our bodies on a cellular level.

And so, I just want to give you something to think about today in the sense of, what is it
that you are currently avoiding?

And if you were to say to yourself, if it were done, if it were behind you, if you’d gotten through it, how would you feel?

And just really hold that.

If you were to stop avoiding [fill in the blank] and did really just face it and get through it, how would that reduce your stress levels?

That’s the power of making sure that we don’t avoid the important stuff or even the less
important stuff for too long.

So give yourself the gift of putting on your big girl or your big boy pants and taking care of it, because the sooner you do, the sooner your stress levels drop and you can get back to being your beautiful, radiant self.

From my heart to yours, hugs.

According to Statista, the global apparel market is projected to grow in value from 1.5 trillion U.S. dollars in 2020 to about 2.25 trillion dollars by 2025, showing that the demand for clothing and shoes is on the rise around the world. This number is staggering which is why we’re talking about fashion’s impact on the environment, how clothes are culturally used as status symbols, how clothes speak to you, what they might say about you, and why, through the ages, clothes have mattered as much as they do to millions across the globe.
