2018-07-28: Task 2 (Bangladesh; Uzbekistan)
Some psychologists say doing absolutely nothing at a time of the day is the best way to overcome stress.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Psychologically, stress has many causes and there are variety of solution to deal with this condition. Psychologists say that stress can be dealt out by sitting idle for the most of the day time. This essay will argued that doing nothing is not the best way to cope up with this as well as provide some other helpful measures.
Stress is a gullible term. These days with the hectic schedule and busy lifestyle, people are not paying attention to their physical and mental health as a result most of them are having this problem. If a person is happy and satisfied with their life then in that case this problem will be eradicated from the society. Various factors can cause stress, for example, not able to perform well in studies, unable to handle pressure in jobs, financial status etc. Mind plays a vital role in handling stress.
There are enormous ways to handle stress and live a healthy life. Meditation is one of the best ways. When a person meditates, it leads to mental peace. It helps in clearing of toxic thoughts and gives clarity to what needs to be done in that very situation. Second best method is to do any fun and frolic based activity, anything which a person enjoy, it can be a hobby or passion. This will help in engaging your mind to something productive or diverting it to happy and positive thoughts.
I disagree that sitting idle is the best way to overcome stress in fact according to me, more negative thoughts will hover in one’s mind while sitting idle. Because if a person is not doing anything then for sure they will think of the factors/causes of that, people responsible for that and many other things. Engaging in some activity will not only diverge their mind but will also contribute to filtering of thoughts and ideas.
A number of psychologists believe that people to overcome their stress of every day affairs need to do nothing a portion of a day. However, it appears that this idea cannot be completely correct. I will explain why in this essay.
Firstly, according to people’s experiences, when they are workless, they cannot avoid thinking about the sources of stress. This is because, they are able to focus on their problems due to the sufficient time they have to check all aspects of their issues while they do anything. As a result, it makes us suffer from a high level of stress. In addition, a second and perhaps most significant and negative impact of this method is to miss a part of life’s opportunities which can be used in order to take effective actions. For instance, in the modern life which is full of stress, individuals should spend their time to search for easier remedies to solve their problems to be safe from the sources of anxiety. Although there are a lot of reasons for stress of every day life these days, overcoming them is easier than the past thanks to the technological improvements. Thus,people should not miss their opportunities by doing nothing.
It is true that the tiredness would be the primary source of stress and people need to be relaxed and free of stress in a portion of a day to refresh themselves. Despite this,today’s life is like a competition. If individuals miss their opportunities because of tiredness, they wont have any chance to improve as much as they wish.
To conclude, this method to reduce the stress may not be effective. It seems to me that it could not help people not only to get opportunities but also to overcome the stress of everyday life.
