NOVEMBER 7, 2018 | NATIONAL STRESS AWARENESS DAY | NATIONAL CANINE LYMPHOMA AWARENESS DAY
NATIONAL STRESS AWARENESS DAY
National Stress Awareness Day is observed annually on the first Wednesday in November. This is a day to identify and reduce the stress factors in your life.
There are many reasons for stress in the workplace. The job market is difficult and with many companies downsizing, a common concern for those affected is how they will continue to provide for their families. Another major stress factor for some may be conflicts with co-workers.
Work-life is not the only stressor. Nearly every employee balances family, home and health as well, whether they are married or not. Parents, siblings, illness, maintenance of vehicles or civic responsibilities may impact our lives.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Develop a routine to help you lessen your tension. Go for a walk, do some deep breathing, get some exercise or a massage or take a long, relaxing bath. Post your ideas using #StressAwarenessDay on social media.
Carole Spiers, Chair of International Stress Management Association, founded National Stress Awareness Day.
NATIONAL CANINE LYMPHOMA AWARENESS DAY
National Canine Lymphoma Awareness Day is observed annually on November 7. It is a day to educate and create awareness about canine lymphoma.
Well-known and respected dog agility trainer and competitor, Terry Simons, was devastated when his “heart and soul” dog was diagnosed with Lymphoma in 2011. An educated dog owner, Terry did all he could for Reveille but soon discovered, even though lymphoma is one of the most common cancers in dogs, that accurate information regarding options and treatment can be elusive. Terry connected with professionals that helped him choose the best path for his beloved companion.
Reveille not only competed in dog agility throughout her treatment but thrived, having the best agility year of her career. When Terry chose to let Reveille go, one year and a week after her diagnosis, he knew he was making the right decision for her. Grief can do strange things, it can destroy, and it can inspire. In the case of Reveille, the realization that he may lose Reveille at any time inspired Terry to form CLEAR (Canine Lymphoma Education Awareness and Research), a cancer foundation dedicated to providing information, resources, and research into the devastating disease. Reveille’s legacy is to ensure that dog owners know their options, thereby being empowered advocates of their four-legged family members.
CLEAR – Canine Lymphoma Education Awareness and Research is dedicated to increasing awareness of canine lymphoma. Through education, we empower dog owners and through research, we look for a cure to this devastating disease.
It is all about education and awareness, which is available in the award-winning documentary on canine lymphoma, My Friend: Changing the Journey (Best Documentary Feature – Los Angeles Movie Awards and Best Educational Documentary – Bare Bones International Film and Music Festival).
