April is National Stress Awareness Month, and this year Team AgLearn is here to help raise awareness of the negative impact of stress.
There is no single definition for stress, but the most common explanation is physical, mental, or emotional strain or tension. While not all stress is bad, long-term stress can have harmful impacts on physical and mental health.
It’s critical to recognize what stress and anxiety look like, take steps to build resilience and manage job stress, and know where to go for help. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides some tips on how to build resilience and manage job stress. Take some time to visit the CDC website on stress External Link and familiarize yourself with ways to manage your stress.
