Expert offers tips in light of Stress Awareness Month

Alleviating stress may be a matter of weeding out the negative and embracing the positive in life, according to self-help author Lauren E. Miller.

April is Stress Awareness Month, and Miller is sharing some of her holistic stress-relieving tips for readers in light of a recent report from The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, which states that more than 19 million Americans suffer from anxiety.

First, individuals should take some time to think about their own typical reactions to stress and where those stem from. Is the response dismissive of skills and focused on shortcomings? Do away with those thoughts and make some room for positivity, Miller says.

Try activating positive thought and concentrate on the good things in life, the author suggests. Individuals control what goes on in their own minds, and these ideas can have the power to make or break them.

“You are not a victim in this process unless you choose to be,” Miller said.
