Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? The best way of reducing stress is to be in a company of people.
Nowadays, as modern life is becoming more complex, there are many duties and responsibilities on shoulders of everyone, so, it goes without saying that their tension may cause certain problems, such as stress. Therefore, every person tends to find the best way for him/her of reducing stress and tiredness. Although some people rest effectively when they are surrounded by people, to my point of view, the best mean of relaxation is loneliness. I can put forward some grounds for bolstering my choice. First of all, when people are stressed they become more irritable and one rush word can generate aggression, what is more, when a person is alone, he/she can concentrate on the issues that cause anxiety and try to cope with them. To begin with, there are many problems in everyday life that are able to cause stress. Many people consider communication as the best way of reducing stress. However, it has been proven that people who face with stress are pretty offensive. Therefore, it is better for them to be isolated so that not to worsen the situation. I can put forward my own example to shed a light on this issue. I was stressed because of the upcoming examination, and when my friends started talking about it, I got really aggressive and could not control myself. For these reasons, in order not to encounter with hardships and anger issues because of other's reckless activities, it is logical to find an isolated place until the stress is reduced. In addition, when a person is alone, he/she gets un opportunity to think about the factors that cause the problem and find certain solutions. Meanwhile, that person is becoming relaxed. On the other hand, there is no way of thinking and concentrating on problems while being surrounded with people, so the further relationship will have a negative effect. For instance, there were some problems regarding my friends’ job, so he was in trouble. He stayed alone for some days so that to try to solve the created issues, and in the aftermath of being alone, he could find a sufficient solution for his problem and reduce all the stress. Thus, people, by spending time with themselves can concentrate on the difficulties in daily life more efficiently and think soberly. As a conclusion we can claim that in the contemporary world, there are many tasks that can cause stress and the best way of dealing with it is spending time alone, based on the reasons mentioned above.
