-Easiest Way to Reduce Effects of Stress Is To Help Others: Study

A new study by researchers from School of Medicine of Yale University and University of California Los Angeles suggested an easiest and interesting way to relieve oneself of the unnecessary pressure.

The study researchers said that being kind and good to others is the best possible method to be happy and proves to be a good stress buster. The researchers, for the study, recruited over 75 men and women between the age of 18 and 44. The study participants were asked multiples questions every night continuously for two weeks.

The questions asked were related to their level of stress during the day. This stress might have come from a variety of aspects like work and relationships, the kind of acts they performed, the different emotions they went through, and their overall mental health, said the researchers.

The researchers said participants who performed several acts of kindness during the day were more likely to have lesser negative emotions and were able to maintain their positive emotions. On the other hand, when people did very less acts of kindness, it helped to bring down negative emotions.

The study researchers agreed that their study have several limitations, but such as the demographics of the participants, and also needs some broad way to evaluate or measure stress. They also believe that study’s findings can help people to cope with stress more effectively by bring down negative emotions.
