Easing stress in human beings Alleviating negative stress Negating stress Neutralizing stress
There is increasing concern that stress contributes to health problems, absences from work, and reduced motivation in a large variety of occupations.
Doctors say 43 percent of adults suffer some health problems from stress.
The UNHCR in 1992 identified a series of measures to enable people to cope with stress. They included: making positive statements to oneself; redefining a distressing task, usually be removing the emotional element; reducing the stress by narrowing the focus; rationalizing the event, or reactions to it; addressing stress symptoms; reframing the stress symptoms; talking oneself into a helpful response; recognizing alternative ways of coping with the stress; self-acceptance of outside pressures that may limit performance.
Well-managed stress can be a good thing. It can motivate and excite us.
2. A lot of people get a lot of satisfaction out of their job and if they were to just retire, that might be actually more stressful for them.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a collaboration between UIA and Mankind 2000, started in 1972. It is the result of an ambitious effort to collect and present information on the problems with which humanity is confronted, as well as the challenges such problems pose to concept formation, values and development strategies. Problems included are those identified in international periodicals but especially in the documents of some 60,000 international non-profit organizations, profiled in the Yearbook of International Organizations.
The Encyclopedia includes problems which such groups choose to perceive and act upon, whether or not their existence is denied by others claiming greater expertise. Indeed such claims and counter-claims figure in many of the problem descriptions in order to reflect the often paralyzing dynamics of international debate. In the light of the interdependence demonstrated among world problems in every sector, emphasis is placed on the need for approaches which are sufficiently complex to encompass the factions, conflicts and rival worldviews that undermine collective initiative towards a promising future.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
