Definition and Scientific Concept of Stress


In the general publics knowledge, stress is when we feel overloaded
and pressured in many things particularly in tasks. Stress, by definition, is
the sense of overload due to agents around the person causing the person to
feel pressured and uneasy in order to respond to changes (Morrow, 2013).
In science, stress is due to reaching the limitations of the physiological
and psychological capacity of a person (Nordqvist, 2013).
