Today’s life is full of challenges. In everyday life we come across many situations. The work of a teacher is a physically and mentally challenging. A teacher needs to use a lot of energy in his daily chores in the classroom coupled with his personal and family commitments. This trend which is a routine for a teacher forwards a lot of stress to the teacher. More than ever before work is not seen as the root of infinite satisfaction and fulfillment, but rather a source of stress, discontentment and humiliation.
This increase negative orientation to work is probable due to the fact that man no longer finds meaning or a sense of him/herself in the community or as freud (1962) ones suggested, but which does not seen to exist today, his work at least gives him a secure place in a portion of reality in the human community. It is because of the dramatic changes that have taken place in society over the last decade or two that work and life stress have became more immediate focal points of interest. This interest has reflected itself in an ever increasing research orientation into occupational stress, the impact of life events, stress with a burgeoning and desperate range of investigations being undertaken into the sources and manifestation of stress, it was felt that we should ‘step back’ and reflect on what should or needs to be done, that is to focus on priorities or issues or problem areas of importance.
