Feeling stress is a normal reaction to changes or challenges and individuals respond to stress differently from one to another. While acute stress is short-lived and considered as “positive”, it occurs to help us get through the stressful situation in the best possible way. On the other hand, chronic stress can linger for a long period of time and if left unattended, it can be detrimental to our physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Acknowledging the importance of the subject, ADSx: Beyond Four Walls brought the topic “How Stress is Killing Us” in its third series which was aired on 5th August 2021. Two experts in the field, Dr. Azlina, an Occupational Health Doctor from Twin Tower Medical Centre and Pn. Nurhema, a Certified Counsellor, took the audience on a deep dive into the surrounding issues related to stress starting from its definition, signs and effects of stress, and the many ways on how to prevent and relieve the stress.
For those who are having trouble managing stress and feel overwhelmed, it is advisable to find someone you feel comfortable to talk to or consult your doctor accordingly. Alternatively, you may also call 24-hour Talian Kasih hotline at 15999 for mental health support.
