Coping up with Stress

In contemporary times owing to the digital revolution and economic reforms across the globe, the quality of living has scaled up substantially. Now, we live in an era of capitalism where through sheer hard work, diligence, and dedication everything and every dream is achievable. However, it is certainly not a cakewalk to easily keep up with the rapid pace of this new and dynamic generation, people including adults as well as students face enormous amounts of stress on a daily basis in day-to-day pursuits of life. Stress prompts disturbance and gives room to the negativity that may even grow and adversely afflict the overall mental well-being of an individual. Therefore, it becomes important to manage and dissipate stress caused due to various reasons. Here are certain simple ways that may help in reducing stress:

  1. STOP OVERTHINKING: It’s we who make problems appear much bigger in magnitude than they are in reality by procrastinating the probable outcomes. At times the problem is not as big as we deem them to be and after all, overthinking won’t make a difference to what is bound to happen, what is to happen will happen.

  2. DO WHAT YOU FEEL LIKE: Recently it has become a common practice for people to give up on stuff that once meant the world to them. Amid the ongoing race to acquire more and more materialistic pleasures, it is to be understood that there is no harm in having a hobby and enjoying what brings intrinsic pleasure and joy in one’s life.

  3. CONNECT WITH NATURE: Unequivocally, modern technology, gadgets, and gizmos have abridged the gaps and brought the world nearer. But, at the same point in time, it shall not be forgotten that there is a real-world full of beauty, calling out to cherish its wonders beyond the electronic media.

  4. LISTEN TO MUSIC: Something that soothes one’s ears has the tendency to soothe the mind as well, music is something that possesses the quality of radiating a never-ending ripple of enthusiasm and positivity that refreshes the overall mood of an individual.

  5. MEDITATE: Meditation remains one of the most conventional and effective measures to reduce stress and anxiety. Having a plethora of proven medical and psychological benefits one shall consider adopting this simple practice in their daily lifestyle.

  6. TALK: At times we tend to keep our feelings, questions, and opinions confined to ourselves thereby initiating self-talks that have no benefit of their own. Communication doesn’t merely abridge the gap but also provides clarity over certain matters that self-talk certainly cannot.

The problem is not that a problem exists, the only problem that subsists perhaps is that no steps for solving the said problem are being taken up. In contemporary times, taking note of the rapid pace at which one is supposed to move, and feeling stressed out is anticipatable. However, for one's own greater good it is inevitably imperative to manage/cope up with stress with efficacy to curb the menace that is likely to be caused if one’s mental health continues to deteriorate due to continuous stress.
