Preface

Stress and tension is an uncalled for response of the body. It serves no useful purpose of the individual who is under stress; on the other hand, it makes him less efficient, less effective and more quarrelsome.

If the tension is prolonged, it can cause many diseases: high blood pressure, susceptibility to heart attack and stomach ulcers.

How to avoid mental tension in our surroundings which easily generate sparks and conflagrations, is the need not only of you and me, but of the whole society-this book describes the results of the latest scientific researches on stress and tension: what precisely it is how the human body fights it; what diseases occur when the body succumbs to it; different stress situations in our day-to-day living, and most importantly, how to avoid stress and how to lessen it.

This last aspect of mental tension has been discussed in great detail so that every one can pick and choose the methods most suitable to his temperament.

It is hopped that this revised and enlarged edition of the book will prove more useful. It also incorporates answer to innumerable queries that I received since the publication of the first edition.
