According to Dr. Kate Middleton (2011), stress is a modern-day plague, something that very few of us escape – something that we probably all have to think about as it follows us every day. Stress is always there in the background, lurking behind us, following throughout our lives and ready to hit at moments we least expect it. Stress can often be an unwanted companion along the road life. Also, Princeton, University (2001) defined stress as, “a state of mental or emotional strain or suspense” and also as, “a number of normal reactions of the body (mental, emotional, and physiological) designed for self-preservation”. Despite its diffuse perception, most of the well-known definitions emphasize stress as “any factor that threatens the health of an individual or has an adverse effect on the functioning of the body” stated by Oxford Medical Publications (1985).
