- Your Health: Because stress can affect your health in many ways, stress management is great for your health and longevity. So is laughter. (Read this for more research on laughter.) If you commit yourself to stress management this month (or even commit yourself to maintaining a sense of humor for this one day), you'll be doing something to lead to a healthier lifestyle.
- Your Happiness: Finding the fun in a given situation is an easy path to greater happiness. Start today by looking at the funny side of various situations. Start this month by managing stress and bringing your level of overall happiness up. Do it for yourself.
- Do It For The Children: Okay, it is a bit if a heartstring-pulling reason for stress management, but managing stress in your own life is a way to help your children learn stress management as well. You can do this by setting a good example of stress management, and by helping children manage their own stress by actively helping them learn stress relief techniques like deep breathing for kids. There's no time like the present.
