Stress in Students
First of all, we should be clear about the term stress. According to The Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary (2009) describes stress as “a physical, chemical, or emotional factor that causes bodily or mental tension and may be a factor in disease causation…and a state resulting from a stress is one of bodily or mental tension resulting from factors that tend to alter an existent equilibrium”. Stress is a body reaction to a challenge. Stress can be both positive and negative.
