[Time suggested : 25 minutes]
Questions 25 29 are based on a letter from the talk given below.
A very good morning to the Chairman of the Residents Club, ladies and gentlemen.
First and foremost, thank you very much for inviting me to give a talk relating to
stress. Let me introduce myself, I am Dr Tunasya, a psychiatrist from the Pahang General
Hospital.
In todays modern and fast-moving society, practically everyone is very stressed and
tensed up. The question here is what do we do when we feel stressed?
Go for a walk, a jog or even a swim if you feel stressed out. You will find that it makes
difference and it costs you nothing. Go shopping or at least window-shopping. It helps
you to release whatever stress you have. Go from one shop to another, maybe you will
come across to something that you like, lets say a dress or a handbag or a wallet.
A person who is very stress needs someone to talk to. You will feel good that
someone is willing to lend you an ear. If you do not have anyone, try calling the
Befrienders. They are there for anyone around-the-clock.
Music, especially classical music, helps to sooth the nerves. So when you are
stressed, do listen to this type of music. It relieves you of your pain and stress. You can
try this, close your eyes and imagine that you are in a place where there is a brook
nearby. You can hear the soft waves beating against the bank. You can also imagine that
you are walking on the white soft sandy beach. Dream your stress away.
I guess thats about all I have to say today. Thank you for your attention.
