Life in a big city pro­vides many oppor­tu­ni­ties, but it requires con­stant return. A fast rhythm, con­stant stress and the inabil­i­ty to back down are all rea­sons for the devel­op­ment of var­i­ous dis­eases, in par­tic­u­lar men­tal ones. We tell you what big city life leads to.

Life in the big city


chronic fatigue syndrome

Men­tal dis­or­der is char­ac­ter­ized by con­stant fatigue, which is not elim­i­nat­ed even after a long rest. Usu­al­ly we attribute the first signs of ill­ness to the loss of strength and ener­gy. The root cause of its devel­op­ment can be virus­es, banal flu, poor ecol­o­gy, as well as severe stress.

Res­i­dents of a large city are espe­cial­ly prone to CFS. A sense of respon­si­bil­i­ty for one’s own life and the well-being of oth­ers increas­es the emo­tion­al bur­den, which leads to the devel­op­ment of a men­tal dis­or­der.

Pay atten­tion to oth­er symp­toms of the dis­ease:

  • mus­cle weak­ness, joint pain,
  • don’t know
  • fear of the world
  • poor con­cen­tra­tion,
  • inflam­ma­tion of the lymph nodes
  • mem­o­ry loss­es,
  • nau­sea or vom­it­ing after exer­cise.

Res­i­dents of a big city live in a con­stant rush and ten­sion. A huge num­ber of cas­es and wor­ries often pro­voke stress, ner­vous and phys­i­cal exhaus­tion. And from here var­i­ous pho­bias devel­op, among which is ago­ra­pho­bia.

This is an uncom­fort­able feel­ing in open and large spaces, as well as in large crowds. If you notice such sen­sa­tions in your­self, you should imme­di­ate­ly seek the advice of a doc­tor.

anxiety disorder

The con­stant flow of peo­ple, the fran­tic rhythm and bus­tle of the metrop­o­lis soon­er or lat­er get bored and can even break, pro­vok­ing an anx­i­ety dis­or­der. The dis­ease man­i­fests itself in the form of anx­i­ety, sleep prob­lems, exces­sive anx­i­ety, etc. All this can lead to emo­tion­al burnout or depres­sion.

If you notice the fol­low­ing symp­toms in your­self, we rec­om­mend that you pay atten­tion to your lifestyle. Per­haps you should slow down.

  • sleep prob­lems
  • anx­i­ety, wor­ry,
  • prob­lems with con­cen­tra­tion;
  • irri­tabil­i­ty,
  • pan­ic attacks and con­stant thoughts about prob­lems or death.
anxiety disorder



One of the most dan­ger­ous men­tal dis­or­ders that can even lead to death. For res­i­dents of the city, the devel­op­ment of the dis­ease is in the order of things, since their dai­ly life is made up of emo­tion­al and phys­i­cal over­load. Depres­sion can’t be ignored! This is a dan­ger­ous and some­times even fatal dis­ease, which some are not even aware of.

Look out for the fol­low­ing symp­toms of depres­sion. If you have noticed such signs in your­self, we advise you to con­tact a psy­chol­o­gist.

  • com­plete loss or decrease in inter­est in the usu­al activ­i­ties,
  • irri­tabil­i­ty and bad mood
  • loss of appetite,
  • deci­sion mak­ing prob­lems
  • pain in the back or low­er back,
  • social media addic­tion.

Dependency Development

Every­day life in a big city often leads to the devel­op­ment of addic­tions. Of course, it’s eas­i­er to “eat stress”, drown prob­lems in an extra glass of wine or relax while smok­ing a cig­a­rette. All this seems like the per­fect way to take your mind off the tur­moil and con­stant fatigue, but in fact it caus­es eat­ing dis­or­ders, the devel­op­ment of can­cer and health prob­lems. If you notice that you can’t even go a few days with­out your addic­tion, it’s time to sound the alarm! In this case, it is bet­ter to seek help from rel­a­tives or spe­cial­ists who will help find and elim­i­nate the root cause of the prob­lem.
