Online Stress Summit

Stress Awareness Day

It’s November 7th and that means it is International Stress Awareness Day.

Stress Awareness Day is your opportunity to start looking after yourself and your life, and break down the individual stressors in your life. Failure to deal with stress in your life effectively can lead to serious health problems, including increased blood pressure, susceptibility to heart disease, and a decline in your immune system.

Once you start experiencing these symptoms they can landslide into each other, resulting in growing sickness, and by extension, more stress. It’s truly a self-feeding problem, and a cycle that is necessary to control to enjoy our lives.

ISMA5676086As part of International Stress Awareness Day, the International Stress Management Association is providing a live stress chatbot helpline.

So if something is worrying you, or you need to talk in confidence go to www.isma.org.uk and talk to one of our stress consultants today between  9 am to 10 pm.

This year the focus of Stress Awareness day is technology. There is no doubt that technology impacts all our lives, and it is thus appropriate that we from ISMA are involved in a debate about the positive and the adverse effects it can have, and how on the other hand technology can also contribute to our advantage.

Danielle and I (Tom) both Belgian members of ISMA wanted to contribute to this debate and have created the Online Stress Summit. This year we have interviewed experts from the US, Canada, Netherlands, South Africa, England and Belgium.

It’s FREE but we ask you to register HERE

The best way to celebrate Stress Awareness Day is to take the opportunity to remove the stress from your life for the day. Take the time to examine your life and find out where all the stressors lie, and start looking into taking steps to remove them or find ways to mitigate them. Removing stress from your life can start off as a stressful experience, so it can help to get the assistance from organizations like ISMA to look into strategies and support in how to manage those things in your life that cause stress.

Whatever you choose to do, take the time to take a day off and let yourself have a day of freedom. If it’s sickness, do something to help you focus on something other than that sickness. Stress can be a killer, don’t let it take one more day from your life, act now and start living a stress free life!

Setting Boundaries with Technology: The Case for a Digital Diet

Advancements in technology have given us the amazing ability to carry around a window into the universe in the palm of our hands. With a never-ending stream of information, connection and stimulation, it can feel impossible to resist the cognitive and emotional pull to gather up and receive more.

We know the human brain is hardwired to crave new, novel information; to desire insight about what other people are doing and wonder where we might be missing out. Now it seems we have lost our ability to be still and let our minds rest.
