Indore: High stress in people between 25 to 35 years of age, which was earlier 20 to 30 years, has seen a steep rise and has caused several health problems. “This is known as Quarter Life Crisis,” said neuro psychiatrist Dr Pawan Rathi at a webinar organised by Create Stories Social Welfare Society on Sunday. "We are coming across this issue more frequently than ever as more and more youngsters come to us with such issues," Rathi said.
He said 35 to 50 per cent of youngsters suffer from this problem. Problems of settling down, getting a job, finding a life partner, building a house and other issues become more prominent at this stage, explained Rathi. "Feeling lonely, depressed, irritable and anxious are some common symptoms of Quarter Life Crisis," he said.
According to a research, 86 per cent people of this age group face jobs, financial crisis, relationship issues and family issues, eight per cent think of going to foreign countries because they do not like the quality of life of their country.
Over 20 per cent people think about quitting or changing their jobs because they are not happy. Over 30 per cent of people are not happy with their relationship or are unable to move forward due to commitments in the relationship.
