Topic: City life is too stressful. Do you agree or disagree? The past 50 years have seen a dramatic increase in densely populated metropolitan areas. This raises a certain issue as to whether city life makes man too stressed. While there are valid arguments to the contrary, in my opinion, city-dwellers are bored because of its rapid pace of life. This essay will provide reasons for justifying this opinion. Firstly, there is a noticeable rise in the volume of traffic in the city. It is not avoidable for dwellers to suffer from traffic congestion, especially during rush hour. In the summer, in hot temperature, millions of vehicles have to stay bumper to bumper because of slow-moving traffic, which for many can be quite a hassle. Usually, when there is an accident on the road, traffic jams get worse, thus, it is not absolutely extraordinary for people living in the city to spend a substantial amount of time outside the house. Secondly, it is possible to face up with poor hygiene and sanitation conditions in the city. The more residential overcrowding it is, the higher the air pollution and environmental contamination are. Local authorities are unable to handle a large amount of municipal solid waste because of a lack of prudent management. Moreover, with the urban development, a range of building and skyscraper projects come out. As a result, people suffer from the polluted noise from construction works. In conclusion, although city life is growing, it does not mean that people can feel more comfortable. A hectic lifestyle, appalling living conditions and slow-moving traffic are posing a threat to people’s daily life. Hence, they must consider a number of solutions to combat these issues. Otherwise, they will face numerous serious diseases.
