The new article aims to provide individuals dealing with stress or stressful situations with information that may help them recognize and understand the role it plays in their lives.
Stress, the feeling of emotional or physical tension, is the human body’s response to pressure. It is a fairly common reaction that most people experience, some more than others.
Naturally, individuals cope with stress differently, depending on their circumstances. However, according to the article, the task is not to try and rid oneself of stress with the expectation of living a happy, worry-free life but to find smart ways to handle it.
“Sometimes we are scared of being stressed,” the article states. “The numerous times we’ve heard that stress is harmful to our systems takes its toll. This is true for some cases of long-term stress problems. And the answer seems obvious — get rid of stress, and you’ll be fine. But humans aren’t built like that.”
The article points out that healthy coping strategies, some of which are listed, can lead to fewer stress symptoms. It also provides other reasonable outcomes of healthy coping strategies, including an increase in feeling in control, and offers the advice, “Changing what we can and accepting what we can’t is one way of dealing with it.”
29K provides a range of articles offering tips and insights into various self-improvement methodologies, such as “Positive And Negative Coping Mechanism Examples,” “Healthy Coping Strategies For Mental Health” and “6 Tips On How To Practice Empathy In Your Daily Life.”
Through the platform, individuals can connect with global community members and receive support in improving their mental health and well-being. There are also courses, exercises, micro-interventions, meditations and action tasks.
With this announcement, 29K remains committed to providing individuals around the world with accessible psychological tools and information to help them manage stress, anxiety, relationships or find meaning in life.
A 29K community member said: “With the stressors in my life, big and small, I need tools to help me cope. I have needed someone who understands how we think and feel to help me direct my thoughts and emotions in ways that enhance my life. This app is perfect.”
