  • People living in urban areas have higher levels of psychotic illnesses such as Schizophrenia and Alzheimer
  • Many reports have proved that the greenery and lesser crowd of villages reduces stress
  • Stimulating a point between eyebrows by simply massaging it improves circulation, reduces muscle tension, and stimulates brain chemicals

More than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas. But researchers say that people living in urban areas have to cope with more stress and have higher levels of mood disorders and psychotic illnesses such as Schizophrenia and Alzheimer. The reason might be the busy and hectic lifestyle in cities.

People who live in the country are happier, according to the Daily Mail. Many reports have proved that the greenery and lesser crowd of villages reduces stress but with several cases of farmers committing suicide reported in newspapers  we can easily assume the stress they go through in case of failure in loan repayment or dowry system or many other possible reasons.

The reason of stress in city people may be the social aspects of urban living — the stress of living and dealing with lots of people, and feeling more anxiety, fear and threat as a result.  The other urban factors like pollution or noise makes the condition worse.  Although, the city dwellers would never face the same stress that people in rural areas do.

Here is an exercise which can be performed by only using your own two hands and it can evaporate all your tiredness, stress and anxiety in less than 5 minutes.

By simply massaging a point between your eyebrows on the forehead can help you release stress as soon as possible

What you need to do is – find the ledge between your eyebrows on the forehead.

Then, massage this point for 45 seconds.

Stimulating this point by simply pressing and massaging it improves circulation, reduces muscle tension, and stimulates brain chemicals known as endorphins.  Apart from just relieving stress, calming your mind, reducing headaches, chronic fatigue, insomnia, and eye pressure, this massage is very effective at alleviating pain in the sinuses and clearing nasal congestion. This massage will help you relieve headaches, stress, and other causes of interrupted sleep.

    It’s better to try out this exercise rather than taking any allopathic medicines as latter can cause side effects.

  • Vrushali Mahajan

    Stress busters should be a good way. People living in urban ares should often visit places which are calmer, greener, less crowdy and should often meditate. This rejuvenates the body and the brain

    I read somewhere that people belonging to the age group of 18-33 are the most stressed. i guess if we make this simple exercise a part of our lifestyle, we will be more relaxed and will benefit from the other positive aspects of the exercise as well, like decreasing insomnia and headaches!
