Mankind since the dawn of history has been afflicted with various forms of diseases. Communicable diseases that took a heavy toll of human life in medieval and prehistoric times, have been replaced by non- communicable diseases and conditions in the recent times. Among the six factors which are responsible for the major share of these diseases, Stress occupies an important place (Rose, G.A. and Blackburn H. 1968). The Oxford English dictionary defines stress as pressure, tension or worry resulting from the problems in one's life. It is thus a condition of the mind, in which a person loses his calm tranquility and equanimity and experiences extreme discomfiture.
