The COVID-19 pandemic has seen a rise in cases of stress, depression, anxiety, and peer pressure in teenagers and adults. Sometimes, it’s normal to feel stressed and anxious. But too much of it can affect one’s health.
Emotions play an important role when we experience stress, uncertainty, social distancing, and isolation. We are already into the ‘New Normal’ situation where the world is facing disruptive challenges, we need to understand how stress is impacting us and what are the ways through which we can manage it.
This stress often brings out anxiety disorders, depression, suicidal thoughts, self-harming, personality disorders, and many other psychological issues. Teenagers often feel stressed due to the myriad changes they experience in their lives both internally and externally in the process of growing up. The most common reason for stress in teenagers is linked to the various questions related to their future.
The session will cultivate your mental well-being and guide you on how to deal with stress and peer-pressure. While we can’t change our nature, we can train our brain to stay positive and hopeful. Once we learn to deal with stress and peer-pressure, the art of acknowledging our emotions gets sharpened up.
In addition, to understanding the causes of stress, through this session we will also dive deeper into understanding and learning about ways which help mitigate stress and deal with peer-pressure.
