Stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous.

It is very common for young people to feel stressed out from time to time. Stress is a normal part of life and can even be beneficial in some situations. We cannot avoid stress, but we can learn to manage it. When people reach out for support, they frequently struggle with several challenges like, not wanting help from others, prejudice from others and insufficient resources that leave them emotionally and physically exhausted in their lives. According to the Institute of Research Advanced (IRA), stress means “Any external event or an internal drive which threaten to upset the organism equilibrium is stress”.

Stress in our body is a response to pressure. Many different situations or life events can cause stress. It has been documented in the present competitive age that younger generations are more stressed. Adolescence is a dangerous period of time where young people experience self-organization and role confusion. For them, stress mainly comes from academic exams, interpersonal relationship issues, financial and career exploration. In general, stress may cause psychological, physical, and behavioural problems. The events that provoke stress are called stressors, and they cover a whole range of situations —everything from outright physical danger to making a class presentation or taking a semester is worth your toughest subject.

Some of the situations are also called happy occasions, such as you may feel required to be happy or excited about puberty, getting married or having a baby.
