Stress is defined as a state of bodily or mental tension resulting from factors that tend to alter an equilibrium. Physically, stress results from overused and fatigued organs. Psychologically, stress is the inability to cope with daily confrontations.

In either form, stress can lead to changes in the body secretions (especially by the Endocrine System), changes in blood circulation, and increased muscle tension, which lead to greater susceptibility to physical illness, mental and emotional problems, and accidental injuries.

While a degree of stress stimulates a person toward performance, over-stimulation can lead to serious psychological conditions, nervous breakdowns, and significantly reduce a person's lifespan.

The following situations may lead to stress for an individual: hospitalisation, debt, marriage or reconciliation, change of job, loss of job, retirement, problems at work, change in finances, sexual difficulties, divorce or separation, and death in the family.
