Being the citizens of Pakistan we are very much affected by terrorist activities. What we experience is known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Human race have faced many such disasters e.g 9/11 which affected our psychological and emotional health. To control terrorism, like many other nations we need to follow the rules which are already mentioned in the laws on which there is a consensus by everyone. Dr Sadaqat mentioned the role of United Nations (UN) which is to promote health and peace. He suggested that being a nation we must also follow the same rules and regulations.

In order to get out of stress we need to minimize our frame regarding the future apprehensions. Instead of thinking about the long term consequences we need to make immediate changes in our present lives. We need to think about the current situation which is to think about the current day or current hour. Do not get immobilized; keep on doing something like a walk or some other activity this will ultimately reduce anxiety. Take a balance diet in small chunks like 6 times a day which should be rich in carbohydrates. Do not take out your stress on someone else rather be kind to each other. Search more knowledge about the current world matters and keep doing exercises.
