Have you heard of Stress Down Day? 26th of July 2013 organised by Lifeline Australia

Tomorrow is Stress Down Day organised by Lifeline Australia

This year's theme is Dress to Stress Less! Lifeline is encouraging people to dress down tomorrow in support of Stress Down Day. 

Stress is the body's way of dealing with pressure. It is a human reaction to life’s demands.
When we experience a high level of pressure in regards to our health, family, cost of living, work or social connections it can trigger an increase in energy and alertness.

In many cases stress is a healthy human reaction as it helps us to cope and get through the event or situation in the best possible way. However, too much stress can affect our health, so it needs to be managed appropriately.

The Aged Case Work Team recommends you read Lifelines Coping with Stress Facts Sheet and effective Tips to Stress Less. 

Have a look at the 9 Things Happy People Do to Stress Less for some more ideas.

The Aged Case Work Team will be taking part in Stress Down Day by wearing casual comfy clothing to work :)

What will you wear?
