Here in the United States, April 16th is National Stress Awareness Day. I'm not sure what this is for. Trust me, I'm VERY aware of my stress. All the time. I don't need a day set aside for that.
@mike This reminds me of s.th. Sadhguru had said a while back: if stress is something you don't want, why would you manage it?!
Suppose that's the neurotic Western approach, in essense putting more energy into the problem - wouldn't it be better to cut our stressors and live a lifestyle that fosters all around well-being?
@mike .. in fact, my cage was so rattled after 13 yrs in the corporate world (IT OPS - burning the candle at both ends - getting called around the clock) that I left. Building our own business now is a lot of work, with uncertainty and struggle and learning, but I feel free and can now finally balance my life the way I need.
@mike It's free to pretend to care with a made up day but dealing with the causes of stress invariably cuts into the bottom line. Won't someone please think about the short term gains to stockholders?!

@mike there's a lot of people neglecting or even not being aware of what stress is. People thinking of burnout as something shameful. So, I'd like a lot more to be familiar with the concept and consequences :)
