Researchers say that if the breakings of the news channels bother you or you become restless after watching the event of an epidemic or accident on TV, then you are likely to have a headline stress disorder. Know how to avoid it
TV Debates, Current Affairs, Accidents and Breaking News of Channels If you feel restless and upset then you need to be vigilant. Whenever a traumatic event, an epidemic, or an unpleasant natural disaster appears on the channel, people suffering from a particular disorder (Mental Disorder) feel both helpless and angry. Some start crying and some get distracted. Researchers call it ‘Headline Stress Disorder’.
People suffering from this syndrome (Syndrome), despite millions of attempts, are unable to stop watching news channels and breaking news.
Actually this syndrome afflicts millions of people worldwide. According to doctors, this mental problem is not possible in any DSM-5: Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are also not associated. It was first recognized and written in December 2016 by Steven Stosny, PhD and Couple Therapist from Maryland, USA. Not only this, but Steven was also the first to mention Election Stress Disorder. Symptoms such as general anxiety, anxiety, fear, intolerance, and low-level frustration are seen in a person suffering from these mental troubles.
More interested in politics
According to a Pew Research Center research released in early June this year, 7 out of every 10 Americans believe they believe the number of news shows on TV is less than the news available. On the contrary, Republicans and right-wing Americans thought enough of the news. In the survey, 10 out of 10 members of the Democrats voted in favour, compared to three-quarters of Republicans. Similarly since 2006, the American Psychological Association (APA) has been regularly surveying stress on Americans. It is generally learned that lack of money, employment, and the economy were among the leading causes of American stress.
According to the APA the survey showed a decrease in stress levels in the initial 10 years. But the trend started to change from late 2016 and early 2017. August, In 2017 the APA began a Harris Poll poll on the election. The following year in January 2018, he also added
A second survey was also combined with questions on climate and election results. The APA found that people’s stress levels had increased. More than half of Americans report that the current political climate is a major cause of tension. Two-thirds of the people cited concern about the future of the country as a reason for stress and 49 per cent informed them about the stress on the election results.
According to an additional study conducted in 2017, 59 percent of the respondents said that media coverage is a major cause of their stress, with employment and job availability at 59 percent.
The relationship can come in a stretch
LD Dukerme, a clinical psychologist based in Connecticut, said that I have never seen so much anger in people. People in the family are now literally shouting at each other and refusing to listen to each other. The problem is that this psychosis is also not included in DSM. But headline stress disorder is not usually a condition that requires therapy to be given to the patient. However, it is also emerging as fights with family members and colleagues with insomnia, lack of energy, anger, irritability. Clinical psychologist Nancy Molitor of Northwestern University explains that people who have headline stress disorder often experience symptoms of stress. Apart from this, other symptoms such as stomach ache, headache, gnashing of teeth and nervous attacks, feeling depressed or depressed and feeling overwhelmed.
Also affecting mental health
University of Texas psychology professor McNaughton-Castle has studied the effects of media on people’s mental health after 9/11 and the devastating storms. Mary says that the human brain is not able to respond as fast as the amount of information it is receiving today. Our brain likes to categorize information and information so that we can respond easily. In fact, the world has never been better or worse than before.
There has always been inequality and injustice and many people were poor. But due to pressure from the internet and media to advertise the negative, everyone has come to know about it. While turning to like-minded people on social media outlets such as Facebook, May provide a temporary solution but in reality, it is not a solution. Rather it often makes things worse. The APA poll found that about 4 out of 10 people debated in political and cultural discussions on social media due to stress.
