It’s International Stress Awareness Week!

The first Wednesday of November is National Stress Awareness Day—which runs alongside the International Stress Awareness Week. So, I’m doing my part and stressing for the nation!

Scream (apologies to Edvard Munch)

If you feel like this! Go for a walk…sniff a flower…touch a tree…look up at the sky…see the birds…watch the wildlife. And just BREATHE.

Poem – an advisory rhyme helping to find a way to de-stress

I suggest chanting these words while dancing round a campfire, a kitchen, or the office and workplace (check boss isn’t around)—or maybe whilst having a bit of a rap? Or a nap? Or even during a walk…😁

Go for a walk

Go for a walk
Have a talk
Sniff a flower
By the hour
Touch a tree
Hug it if you will,
hug it until,
you feel,
real
better.
Better letter go of stress!
It makes you a mess;
Don’t mess with stress
It makes you ill,
It does.

Look up at the sky
Stretch yourself high
to the sky—

See the birds.

See the birds

Let go of strife
And watch the wildlife

Just breathe
Relieve

Hold on to your dream

Or scream!

It’s now lunchtime! And just thought of another verse! 😁 haha sorry

I’ve a hunch
(I think you’ll find)
A break for lunch
can help unwind—
so, get on your feet
And go to eat
A bite to munch
(alright?)

An encore!—lunchtime verse

Bye for now,

Catch you later! 😁
