Modern life is very busy and updates itself frequently. Human beings regularly encounter more information than several generations of their ancestors would have ever been faced in over the entire span of their lives. In many ways this freedom of information can make life easier. We communicate faster, we measure more accurately and we can prevent ourselves from getting lost. Still, the overall result of this is that we experience anxiety, depression and most of all, stress. Here are a few ways that you can brainstorm great research topics in this area.
Find out about the different types of stress
Most commonly people mean distress when they mention the word. This refers to a negative panicky feeling that comes about when life feels overwhelming. It can cause people to feel hopeless and paralyzed by their situations. On the other hand there is eustress. This is more comparable to the situation experienced when you are challenged in a way you appreciate. You may have a deadline and push yourself to meet it because of the adrenaline.
Research its effects
Bearing in mind that there can be both distress and eustress you can look deeply into the effects of both in terms of mind and body. The more you know, the more you can draw from in the creation of a fascinating topic.
Consider the different ways you can alleviate it
There have been many methods of mitigating the stressful effects of daily life. These include exposure to sunlight, meditation, medication, exercise and many more. There are enough of these that you could attempt several if they fit the direction you want your research to take.
Analyze it from the perspective of different subject areas
Theology, psychology and biochemistry majors would have wildly different takes on the way stressful situations affect us. This could be useful in coming up with a unique topic in this field.
Look for trends in previous research that you may wish to avoid
There is no need for you to start from scratch in the creation of your paper. You should definitely look into the previous work in this field to see if anything resembles what you intend to do. It may also be useful to look for unrelated things for hidden trends you might not have immediately noticed.
There will be other small tricks that can also help you but these provide a great start.
