Everybody knows more or less what stress is. After all, stress is something we all have to deal with. For most of us, the word ‘stress’ brings to mind your typical workaholic executive. Yet everyone is prone to stress, including housewives, manual workers, pensioners, children and even babies. The word stress is mostly used in a negative sense. It evokes disagreeable sensations and suggests an unpleasant state of mind and feelings of nervousness and anxiety. However, this is of course an incomplete picture of what stress actually is.
