National Stress Awareness Day

National Stress Awareness Day is April 16th. Our slogan at Storage West is "Here for You" but who will be there for you when you are stressed? Dont take the chance and wait for stress to happen. Try and find ways to relax before the stresses of life take over. Here are some tips on how to manage daily stress.

1. Take care of your body and mind.

Practice solitude. Get away from it all to help yourself recharge. Practice mindfulness during these moments to gain the full benefits of this activity.

2. Get regular exercise.

Walk the dog around your community. Take a bike ride. It can help clear your mind. Stretching your muscles between chores never hurts either.

3. Identify your Priorities.

On your drive to work make a mental note of what you want to make of your day, then just do it! Be realistic when setting your goals and you'll be more likely to stay motivated enough to reach them.

4. Cultivate Gratitude.

Write down what you are grateful for each day and make it a habit to remind yourself when the stress of the day creeps in. This simple task can help remind you what is really important. Follow these tips and you might find yourself sleeping better and even having healthier relationships with your loved ones. Its the perfect gift to yourself. Here's to more peace and harmony and a stress free life!
