How Do You Manage Stress?

There are so many things I like about Sweden - the friendly faces, the beautiful places, music, community's love for animals, the variety of dishes, free education, great insurance policy and many more. I can say that this land is actually the land of opportunities especially if you work real hard for the life you want and dream of.

Since education is at no cost, students (at least most) don't take their studies for granted. I know as I am one of them who can freely go to school and register to whatever subject I want to take without paying even a cent. However, a student's life can be so stressful and demanding. As an immigrant living here in Sweden for a year and seven months now, I can say that there are times when I get into the state of depression. Although I am doing good on all my subjects, I still feel so much emotional strain as I need to give an extra mile of energy, effort and patience in order to keep up with my Swedish classmates. Imagine solving a mathematical situation wherein the details of the problem are given in Swedish or how about creating a two to four pages of book reports for my Swedish subject... stressful, right? There are times when I go home feeling weak and sick.

Even those who are in the working class level are also imprisoned with stress. I know someone who works 14 to 16 hours a day, five days a week just because the home for the elderly where he's working for two years now is short on staff. At the end of the day, he's so tired and just want to go to bed and rest.

We all know that too much stress can slowly destroy our health. Thing is, it's difficult to avoid such a state as it's also difficult to avoid the pressure around us. This is why most people in Sweden try to enjoy most of their weekends - may it be alone, with friends or the family, doesn't really matter. For as long as they are able to have some fun for awhile, they are more than thankful.

Aside from going out on picnics during the summer period, skiing and snow boarding during the winter season or visiting their favourite coffee shops most of the time, engaging themselves in online gaming sites (such as online Lottery, online arcade gaming and casino online) during their spare time is one of the most common leisure activities here. Talking about playing casino over the net, my boyfriend's mother spends at least three hours per week playing blackjack or poker online. She's clever enough to get big bonuses just by registering on several casino sites online. She usually checks to know the top rated online gaming sites at present and their freebies for registered members. I have watched her played many times and I find her really enjoying each game. At least playing fun games over the internet take off her mind from stress sometimes.
