Stress Essay Model Answer

Stress is a problem that can have detrimental effects on many people’s lives, and there are various factors in modern society responsible for this. However, there are ways to limit the potential impacts.

The modern world we live in today presents us with many issues that we did not have to cope with in the past. Firstly, there are issues of terrorism that we are constantly confronted with in the media. Whether these are real or not, we are led to believe our lives are in constant danger, be it flying on a plane or travelling on public transport. Climate change is another worry that everyone has to face. The results of a significant rise in temperatures could radically affect our ways of life, and our children’s too. There are also more health issues to be concerned about than in the past, with rises in alzheimer’s, diabetes, and stroke to name but a few.

Remember an IELTS essay is not quite the same as an academic essay you will normally write. It is can be more personal as you only have your own experience to support your answer with.

You should avoid too many personal pronouns if possible such as 'I' throughout the essay but you may wish to use this to give your opinion or examples from your own experience at times. This is ok, but don't overdo it.

This question specifically says how can 'we' reduce it. So it is already making it personal. So it is ok to write about what all of us, or 'we', can do.

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.

Write about the following topic:

Stress is now a major problem in many countries around the world.

This type of essay lends itself to two body paragraphs - one explaining the causes and the next discussing some possible solutions.

As is important with any IELTS essay, you must always read the question carefully.

The topic is often narrowed down to a particular group of people or topic.

Narrowing down the question

Take a look at the stress essay question:

Stress is now a major problem in many countries around the world.

What are some of the factors in modern society that cause this stress, and how can we reduce it?

The key here is that 'modern society' is mentioned.

If you just talk about stress in general but don't connect it to modern society you may be in danger of not fully answering the question.

However, given this is unlikely to happen, we need to develop our own strategies to distract us from these influences. Of course exercising regularly is one thing we should do as this has been shown to increase endorphin levels and lead to feelings of happiness. Sleeping enough helps us to recuperate and restore our body. Finally, eating properly can improve our health and result in less worry about potential diseases.

All in all, although there are many factors around us today which lead to stress, we can take steps to reduce it. Given that the strains we face in modern society will likely get worse, ignoring it is not an option for many people.

Each has their own characteristics, symptoms, duration, and treatment approaches. Almost everyone has some type of stress. Some people cope with it better then others.
Causes of stress are known as stressors. Stressors can be physical or emotional, internally or externally generated. Stressors can be events, situations, people or demands the individual perceives to be the source of stress. The most common stressor is change, such as loss of a loved one, career change, illness or injury, and lifestyle changes. Stressors also vary amongst people; children, teens and adults are all capable of experiencing stress yet, there are some stressors that are specific to the age or type of person. Sources of stress are often categorized into "crises and catastrophes, major life events, and daily hassles." Daily hassles such as noise, car problems, financial issues, misplacing keys, and conflicts in interpersonal relationships are all examples of the "microstressors" that add up over the course of a day or week.
