ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND

Stress is the major factor which alters the physiology in the human beings. Stress can be dangerous if it is acute and severe as in life threatening situation, trauma, and several other conditions. Even the milder stress can be harmful if persists for longer duration. Such chronic mild stress if not managed regularly it can cause several morbidities. What is preventing people from managing stress is the question of debate. In most of the patients, the lack of awareness is the major culprit.(1) There is a growing concern about the increasing cost and prevalence of stress-related disorders; especially in relation to workplace. In General, human tendency is to avoid stress and also other conditions which might lead to long term problems or misery or ill health. The challenge is how to make people realise that they are under stress and this is problematic.
