Immigration Stress

Immigration stress refers to psychological strain or distress responses to immigration-related challenges that people encounter as they adapt to life in a new country. Hypothetical Data Findings: According to the surveys it appears that the average rating for the 50 participants is 3.5. Meaning they view themselves as above average in stress levels. Another interesting finding was that the stress levels of the younger population were higher than the average of the older population. Yet, the level and type of, and response to, migratory stress varies with, among other factors, individual characteristics, the circumstances of migration and the welcoming in the new country. Here are some tips for coping with the stress associated with any type of immigration: Take care of yourself physically. Exercise is proven to relieve stress and has many other health benefits. Take care of yourself mentally. Being aware of your mental health and preferences can do wonders in your life. There is no shame in seeking out counselling services, even if you’re not sure about it give it a try! Build a community. Forming friendships and other relationships can allow you to discuss your experiences and alleviate some of the tension or stress you may carry around.
