International Stress Week

International Stress Week

November 7-11 is International Stress Awareness Week. The number of people who identify as being more stressed than last year is increasing. One international study report that people who had a strong sense of meaning and purpose in their life were less stressed. 

What are some things that give us a sense of purpose? Caring for someone who needs your help. Community volunteering. Or being part of a group that connects you with others such as a service club or a church. 

If you find yourself stressed don’t do less…do more of what connects you to others with a sense of purpose.
