Stress Awareness Month

April is Stress Awareness Month and a good time to evaluate your current stress level. Stress is an unavoidable, normal response to a change — even a positive change can be stressful. Stress can manifest physically, such as:

  • Aches and pains
  • Muscle tension
  • Digestive or sleeping issues
  • High blood pressure

Stress can also manifest mentally in anxiety, depression and irritability. These stress responses need to be managed with good amounts and types of sleep, food and exercise. Saying “no” to extra responsibilities and “yes” to relaxing, healthy activities can also counter stress. As a District, we are committed to the well-being of our students, staff and families.
