“An adult biting nail in front a crowd
can be much more than just bad habit. It can be chronic stress…..” Humans will think as long as
they have a functioning brain. And that is good; adults need
to think for better living, better performance and overall
better quality of life. But what if over thinking
starts to affect mental balance? What if individuals forget to have fun
due to the constant fear of the future? What if life becomes
a burden for a man or woman due to over
analyzing every situation? This is stress. Thinking is acceptable and
good, but stress is not. Stress makes life miserable. Stress kills the joy of life. Stress is the main reason why some adults
cannot deal it anymore and kill themselves. Stress can happen due to many reasons. Stress can happen because of an incurable
illness; stress can happen due to the weak financial situation, a broken
relationship can also cause stress. Whatever the reason is living
with stress is not good. Stress can cause depression. And depression may force a
healthy person to attempt suicide. No one can be happy all the
time; there will be problems. But adults must learn to deal with problems
without bringing stress to their lives. There is a difference between
thinking and worrying. Thinking about the need for a healthy
diet to avoid lifestyle diseases is good. But baseless cancer scare due to past
family history only invites stress. It is good to get a regular checkup, but
no can prevent illness like cancer, so what is the point of ruining current life by
thinking what may happen in a distant future? It is not like over thinking
will prevent the illness. Future is uncertain. Past will not change due
to the current action. It is only present that matters. But only children live in the present. For a kid, nothing is more important
than playing and having fun. Kids do not care about
good school; they are happy if they have a
friend to play with. Kid life is a fun life; everyone
changes once one step in to adult life. Worry about things that
are happening, worry about things that
are going to happen. Stress kills people like cancer does. Stress is no less worrying matter. Stress enters life silently
and then creates havoc. It shakes the basic existence. There are many types of stresses. According to psychologists, there
are three most common type of stress. Acute stress, chronic
stress and distant stress are the most
well-known form of stress. Nature of different type
of stress is not the same. But every type of stress can lead
to depression; it goes unnoticed. It is not easy to diagnose stress. A common feeling is, adults have so many
worries, and they cannot avoid thinking. True, adults cannot stop thinking. But stress and thinking are not the same. Most middle class families face
a financial problem, and the head of the family feels most
pressure in these situations. Pressure due to not being able
to fulfill family needs, the head of the family may start to
eat more or less than normal. Or take up drinking, stay out
of the house more than usual. Change of habits is the most
common sign of living under stress. If a family member starts to talk
less, spend more hours alone in a room, then other family members
should communicate with the person. Talking can help and
sometimes solves the problem. But even if just talking cannot solve
the problem talking will still let the person know that someone will
always be there for support and comfort. However, friends and family
cannot cure every stress. Some people may need to talk to
a professional to feel better. There is no shame in
talking to a therapist. Even the strongest cookie
can crumble under pressure. Talking to a therapist is
not a sign of weakness. Actually, it shows one accepted the
problem and now looking for a cure. Mental illness is an illness
like physical illness. There is no shame in going to the doctor. Medicines are there to cure. Life has so many issues. It is not easy to avoid stress. Worry will always be there. Poor people believe people with
money do not have problems. That is not right. Someone with money stresses about losing
money, health and feels sad after realizing one day they will no longer be able to
enjoy the good things that they own now. They also get tensed about matters
that they cannot control with money. However, a simple trick can
change the way one lives life. The trick is, do not ever over
think and become stressful. One needs years of practice
to live a Zen life. But it is achievable. Minimalistic lifestyle can
lead to stress free life. Why stress is bad? Over thinking causes stress. Over thinking disturb sleep
pattern, some starts to drink more. Blood pressure goes up,
and stroke, heart attacks are common among high
blood pressure patients. A young person can die just like that
due to sudden stroke or heart attack. These incidents can
shorten a promising life. A person who lives a happy life has
less chances of dying from a stroke. This is why one should manage
stress, if possible, avoid stress. Not many understand, but stress
lowers the longevity of lives. Stress puts pressure
on the brain and it is hard to take the right
decision under stress. Adults need to protect
themselves from stress. Stress is no less dangerous
than terminal cancer!
