Protests and Health – level 2

17-06-2020 15:00

Protests are very stressful for both protesters and people who watch the protests on TV. People can eat or drink more, they can feel sad, or they can have problems going to sleep.

Experts warn that protesters can have health problems a long time after the protest ends. People who protest against racism are physically and mentally tired. These people go to many protests, and they feel that their work never ends.

Some protests can be calm; however, sometimes, the situation gets serious. Police shoot at protesters, and there is a lot of violence.

It is not easy to process anger and pain. Experts say that protesters need to look after their mental health. It is good to meditate, go to a psychologist, or write in a journal.

Difficult words: process (to get over something unpleasant), meditate (to think deeply and be quiet for some time), journal (when a person writes in a notebook or ca computer what he does every day and how he feels).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
