Author(s):

Kavita Dua

Abstract:
Tired faces, embittered looks, unwillingness to communicate with the colleagues, constant dissatisfaction and in the end the decreasing of the overall working results and poor performance… Is this the picture you often see? The ―painter of this negative picture‖ could possibly be such a phenomenon as stress, which is no more something new or seldom meeting.
Stress is a fact of everyday life, we’ve all felt it. Sometimes it acts as a positive force and sometimes as a negative force. If you experience stress over a prolonged period of time, it could become chronic, till you take some action. About 500 million people worldwide are believed to be suffering from neurotic, stress related and psychological problems. Stress has been experienced since ancient times, but it has never been worse than it is here in the early 21st century. Nowadays stress is responsible for more than fifty percent of all illness. Despite this fact, the phenomenon of stress still hasn’t been that deeply studied.
This article highlights the causes, effects and management of stress and therefore could be helpful for people who want to learn how to react to stress in a more constructive, proactive way.
