Stress has perpetual element of human life. Stress
has become a significant problem in academic vortex as well as in our social
order. Academic stress is a universal problem occurs the countries,
civilizations, cultures, and communities, and be viewed in its context.
(Wong, Wong & Scott 2006) Academic stress is psychological embarrassment
with respect to some expected annoyance connected with
academic collapse or unawareness to the possibility to such failure. The
adverse physical and sentimental feedback that occur when the demand of the job
do not match the capacities, capabilities, resources, and need of the worker.
However, focal point of an intellectual definition is more on the perception of
an individual. One example is, stress occur when the perceived pressure exceeds
your perceived ability to cope.(palmer et al,2003)
Many scholars in the
field of behavior science have identify pervasive or extensive research on
stress and its outcomes and concluded that the topic needed move attention.

The situations and pressures that cause stress are known as stressors.
Institutional level stressors are overcrowded lecture halls, semester system,
and inadequate resources to perform academic work (A wino & Angola, 2008).
The pressure to perform well in the examination or rest and time allocated
makes academic environment very stressful (Erkutlu &Chafra, 2006).
People define stress as the response to existing situations, which include
physiological changes (increased heart rate, and muscle tension), emotional
and behavioral changes (Bernstein,et al 2008).
When you face the very tough or busy
situation like traffic jam or mountain of bills your body react as
strongly as if you were facing a life or death situation. Academic chronic
stresses have many symptoms that you notice in yourself like
cognitive symptoms, emotional symptoms, physical symptoms, and behavioral
symptoms. Cognitive symptoms like forgetfulness, loss of concentration,
confused, negative self talk, lack of interest etc.
