7 November 2007: UK National Stress Awareness Day 2007 and National Ban Bullying at Work Day 2007

The UK National Stress Awareness campaign aims to present a more positive, proactive and manageable approach to stress management. There are many causes of stress and when these build up they undermine people's natural ability to cope, leaving them tired, and anxious, irritable and making stress more infectious.
National Stress Awareness Day - 7th November 2007 is an annual event organized by the International Stress management Association. To find out how you can participate please visit www.isma.org.uk/about-national-stress-awareness-day-nsad
