KHS joins the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in recognizing April as National Stress Awareness Month. Here are some tips from the experts and some products from us to address your stress.
Take time to unwind…it’s healthy to relax, renew, and rejuvenate. We all know stress happens; sometimes it’s unavoidable, at times it’s unbearable. That’s why taking time for yourself is a necessity. At KHS we have a number of products to help you relieve your stress.
Stress does not merely afflict your mind; it can also affect you on a cellular level. In fact, long-term stress can lead to a wide range of illnesses – from headaches to stomach disorders to depression – and can even increase the risk of serious conditions like stroke and heart disease. Understanding the mind/stress/health connection can help you better manage stress and improve your health and well-being.
Everyone is different, and so are the ways they like to relax and unwind. Here are some ideas: take a walk, read a book, go for a run, have a cup of tea, play a sport, spend time with a friend or loved one, meditate or do yoga.

While you can’t avoid stress, you can minimize it by changing how you choose to respond to it. The ultimate reward for your efforts is a healthy, balanced life, with time for work, relationships, relaxation, and fun.
