Thais advised not to consume too much of politics news

BANGKOK, 24 January 2014 (NNT) – Thai citizens have been advised not to be obsessed with current political developments, as they could develop the so-called political stress syndrome (PPS).

The Ministry of Public Health revealed that the ongoing political conflict was having an emotional effect on the people, causing them to inevitably become stressful; if one is unable to recover from this state of mind, he or she could develop the political stress syndrome (PPS). According to the ministry, there are 5 groups at risk of the syndrome, which include politicians, supporters, followers, political news consumers, and those with mental disorders.

The Public Health Ministry also pointed out ways to relieve stress such as turning one’s attention to something unrelated to politics, talking to like-minded people, exercising, relaxing oneself, and calming one’s mind by doing religious practices.

For those who follow these instructions and still experience a certain level of depression for longer than a week, it is best they consult a psychiatrist, the ministry suggested.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
