The New World Order is back with interesting articles for you to keep you contented at home. Before I start with today’s topic, I want to congratulate all former Covid-19 patients and would like to wish all present Covid-19 patients a speedy recovery. Now, moving forwards. Today, I, Arrush Sethi, will talk to you about stress, how it is caused, and how to prevent it. I will also give a very useful and very easily understandable analogy regarding stress, and I am sure that this topic will be even clearer for you once you read it.
In the Lockdown today, stress, is becoming a common word among us. Stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. This event or thought is also known as the stressor. Stress is your body’s reaction to a challenge or demand. Many people think that stress is something that should be avoided at all costs. But that is wrong. Stress, in small amounts keeps us focused and determined. Stress helps us wake up in the morning, learn, and remember new things. It’s when people start having too much stress and cannot cope with their problems that stress becomes fatal. High levels of stress can disrupt the natural changes in the body’s stress response system and start to affect our physical and mental health. Over time, accumulated stress can result in false Fight, Flight or Freeze Reactions.
Imagine each person as a bucket, with a specific capacity to hold stress. This bucket is always a product of our genes, personality and life experiences, and it’s size varies from person to person. The water in this bucket s a combination of all the stress in our lives. We use the coping strategies we have available to keep our bucket from overflowing. These coping strategies are like taps, that allow water to drain from the bucket.
Stress can include training, work, school, relationships, finances, moving, changing jobs, or the loss of a loved one. Each negative or positive experience alters the amount of liquid in a bucket. A big bucket can hold more water; or stress, before it overflows, whereas, with a smaller bucket, less water is required for the water or stress level to become critical. While you cannot change the size or your bucket, you can however, make new life adjustments to prevent water from coming in. You can also learn new coping strategies and stress management techniques to allow your water; or stress, to drain out.
If you are feeling stress, it is very important for you to read this. It is important for you to loosen up, and just chill for some time. One should always just do some stress-busting activities, for they help tremendously by loosening you up, whether or not you are in stress, because a state of relaxation is guaranteed to make your day. Everyone has different stress busting activities. For example, I like to listen to music whenever I feel nervous and I am in tension. And it’s not harmful to read a few pages of my fantasy novel, either.
Please mention your favorite stressbusting activities down below in the comments. Before we depart, I would like to recommend another blog to you, one which operates on Instagram. The name of the blog is Speak Out Teens, and the Founder is Avani Gupta herself, one of The New World Order Team, and the co-Founder is Trisha Kumar. This blog operates on a great initiative, and persuades their readers to speak out, to express their feelings, to battle their toxicating misery by sharing. The Speak Out Teens blog has recently started a campaign to help stop stress from overflowing our buckets. The “Dear Stress, Let’s Break Up” campaign (epic name, by the way 😏😁😂) seeks out their readers to send the bloggers videos on what stress means to them, and what stressbusting activities do they usually do lessen up the load on their shoulders. Below I am attaching the Introduction Video To Speak Out Teens.
Now, you must be wondering. Why is Arrush, the most awesome guy of all time, telling us to go to this blog? (😏😏) Well, thank you dear reader, and I am, to your utmost delight, answering your question. Well, the Speak Out Teens is not only a great initiative bent towards helping those in need to fight against stress, but it is also very, very helpful. I personally know both the Founder and the co-Founder, Avani Gupta and Trisha Kumar, and I know that they have experienced tough times in their lives, and both of them have noticed, that speaking out might seem like a tough task, but sharing your experiences with someone only lightens up the load in your bucket. So I believe that if there is anyone who is capable of helping others cope with their stress and understanding how much they are going through, it’s those two. I am also providing a link to their page; https://www.instagram.com/speakoutteens/
Don’t forget to like, comment, and follow both blogs! 😁😁
Until next time, dear readers! Stay Home Stay Safe. Oh, and one more thing; Stress, if you’re reading this, I have a message for you, from all of us. “Dear Stress, Let’s Break Up!” 😏😏
