On the other hand, if you deal with things that are not dangerous in your life, and your anxiety is going to the extreme, you may have anxiety. According to scientific research, people who experienced wars, disasters and diseases will remain strong and healthy without mental disorders if they have coping strategies. In contrast, others may face the same difficulty, yet they do not have coping resources. Therefore, they may have mental disorders. Actually, you can develop these coping skills by yourself; you can treat your anxiety until it is gone.

  • International tourism expands your outlook and alleviates your anxiety.

Anxiety is a very rational emotion in the sense; nonetheless, in fact there probably is not as much threat as individuals think. Normally, many adolescents worry about things a lot when they feel threatened or worry that something bad might happen. Anxiety becomes a disorder when individuals get stuck in certain self-reinforcing cycles, which means they think they are doing the right things appropriately to reduce their anxiety. For example, teenagers who have anxiety do not talk to other people. However, unfortunately, in the long term, those things are going to reinforce fear. Sometimes individuals who have anxiety will insist their idea and always refuse to take treatment. In this situation, family members can help the person to deal with anxiety by encouraging in some logical and reasonable ways. At this point, it is very important to let them know that anxiety can be treated. If people can work with psychologists or psychiatrists, they can really make their life better and happier.

Another solution is international tourism because when someone goes to another country, it’s a bit easier to see a different perspective in this world, thereby feeling better.

It is very normal to have anxiety in New Zealand, about one person has anxiety in every 14 persons. Anxiety issues generally fall into 4 categories: generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder and specific phobias. An anxiety condition is not developed by one factor, as it could be developed by a combination of things, such as genetic inheritance by family, or in other factors it could be a difficult life experience and physical health.
