I may prefer the emotional thing currently.

Maybe about”Sources and release of stress”/“emotions and release”

 

Topic choosing

I have been paying attention to many social topics to try to establish the theme of my thesis. There are several directions that I’m currently interested in:

1.About sustainability:

There are environmental problems that deserve our attention every day in the world. One of the most impressive news recently was that scientists found “green algae” in Antarctica. That means the greenhouse effect have spread to the polar regions. The necessity of sustainable design has always been worthy of our attention. As I understand sustainable design not only in terms of materials. From my perspective,“everything has life”. Maybe my design can start by extending the life of an item, so that it can exist in our life in another way when it reaches its life limit.

2.About personal emotions/ where’s pressure from?

Everyone has stress. The sources of stress are very different, and the tipping point of stress is different for everyone. The change of personal mood can be influenced by many external factors. I really want to know what are the sources of worry and stress, and what ways to relieve it.

Our senses can pick up signals from the outside world, and they can also transmit emotions. Take the human mouth for example. A lot of hurtful words can cause stress. Like the ear of the person who hears these words.

And each of us has our own unique way of dealing with stress, which I would like to know as well. For example, as far as I’m concerned, maybe coming home at night and listening to music while taking a shower is a good way to relax.
