While reasons of stress could be different, one thing is for sure that each of us is stressed being in our current state of mind. From an adolescent to an elderly, stress has sunk its teeth in our minds. Whether necessary or not, we are all giant victims of stress in this era.
With digital maelstrom comes new-age stress like FOMO (do we really need to mention what does it stand for?) for teenagers; young singles are tensed for achieving their goals successfully; parents might be stressed because of the environment at their workplace; senior citizens struggle for being an important member of the family; basically, every person has a justification for his/her worries.
But the question here is, how often do you think of releasing these negative thoughts and welcome the optimistic vibes to surround us? Well, the answer is simple -no one! We are too busy thinking about our problems that we all neglect to comprehend the situation and look out for its solution!
Food For Thought: One, understand what is bothering you and two, look out for its solution rather than slouching on your couch and cribbing.
Wait! Why are we here for? In case, 'Food For Thought' doesn't work for you, let us tell you that we are here to suggest a few methods on how to tackle your routinely stressed life and feel all happy again.
