ABSTRACT

The word ‘Stress’ is defined by the Oxford dictionary as “state of affair involving of demand on physical or mental energy”. Stress is a state of mental tension and worry caused by problems in one’s life, work, etc. Stress is a general term applied to various psychological (mental) and physiological (bodily) pressures experienced or felt by people throughout their lives. Hans Selye, one of the leading authorities on the concept of stress, described stress as “the rate of all wear and tear caused by life. Every one experience stress whether it is within the family, business, organization or any other economic activity. Stress is a big problem in our society. The main objective of this is to assess the level of stress of the teachers working in Universities, Secondary Schools, Elementary Schools, and teachers working in different organisations. Researchers have made all attempts to critically examine the studies conducted in the field of stress.
