A person gets up very early to go to the office and, when going out, must deal with the traffic: honking, screaming, cars moving very slowly, etc. At work, eight hours of nervousness and effort. When you get home, you have to clean the house and take care of your family. Consequences? Various physical and emotional reactions that are known as stress .

This concept comes from the English term stress and is associated with the state that is produced from the facts that generate overwhelm or anguish . When a subject receives demands that are excessive, he will begin to feel anxiety and experience various symptoms.
