Since stress activates the body's defense mechanism, blood is frequently drawn away from the extremities and to the torso when a stress attack occurs. Digital thermometers (digital because they measure finger temperature) can be used to detect a person's level of stress. Note that the actual temperature is not the most important characteristic, but rather the change in temperature.
Using this knowledge has proven useful in designing treatment for prevention and control of stress attacks. This technique was pioneered by Dr. Claudio Zapata.
Some techniques of time management may help a person to control stress.
1.becoming more organized and reducing the generation of clutter
2.setting priorities can help reduce anxiety
3.using a "to do" list of tasks that a person needs to complete can give a person a sense of control and accomplishment

Stress is a dynamic condition in which individual is confronted with an opportunity, constraint,or demand related to what he or she desires and for which the outcome is perceived to both uncertain and unimportant.
In other way, stress is defined as an adaptive response to an external situation that results in physical, psychological, and /or behavioral deviations for organizational participants

What is work stress?
Work-related stress is the response people may have when presented with work demands and pressures that are not matched to their knowledge and abilities and which challenge their ability to cope.
Stress occurs in a wide range of work circumstances but is often made worse when employees feel they have little support from supervisors and colleagues and where they have little control over work or how they can cope with its demands and pressures. There is often confusion between pressure or challenge and stress and sometimes it is used to excuse bad management practice.
Pressure at the workplace is unavoidable due to the demands of the contemporary work environment. Pressure perceived as acceptable by an individual, may even keep workers alert, motivated, able to work and learn, depending on the available resources and personal characteristics. However, when that pressure becomes excessive or otherwise unmanageable it leads to stress. Stress can damage your workers’ health and your business performance.
Stress results from a mismatch between the demands and pressures on the person, on the one hand, and their knowledge and abilities, on the other. It challenges their ability to cope with work. This includes not only situations where the pressures of work exceed the worker’s ability to cope but also where the worker’s knowledge and abilities are not sufficiently utilized and that is a problem for them.
The effects of work stress
The effects of work stress on individuals
Stress affects different people in different ways. The experience of work stress can cause unusual and dysfunctional behavior at work and contribute to poor physical and mental health. In extreme cases, long-term stress or traumatic events at work may lead to psychological problems and be conductive to psychiatric disorders resulting in absence from work and preventing the worker from being able to work again.
When under stress, people find it difficult to maintain a healthy balance between work and non- work life. At the same time, they may engage in unhealthy activities, such as smoking drinking and abusing drugs. Stress may also affect the immune system, impairing people’s ability to fight infections.
When affected by work stress people may:
become increasingly distressed and irritable
become unable to relax or concentrate
have difficulty thinking logically and making decisions
enjoy their work less and feel less committed to it
feel tired, depressed, anxious
have difficulty sleeping
experience serious physical problems, such as: heart disease, disorders of the digestive system, - increases in blood pressure,headaches, musculo-skeletal disorders (such as low back pain and upper limb disorders)

WHAT IS STRESS?
Stress is your mind and body’s response or reaction to a real or imagined threat, event or change.
The threat, event or change are commonly called stressors. Stressors can be internal (thoughts, beliefs, attitudes or external (loss, tragedy, change).
Eustress or positive stress occurs when your level of stress is high enough to motivate you to move into action to get things accomplished.
Distress or negative stress occurs when your level of stress is either too high or too low and your body and/or mind begin to respond negatively to the stressors.
As you begin to experience a stressful event or perceive something to be stressful psychological changes occur in your body. This experience or perception disrupts your body’s normal balance and immediately your body begins to respond to the stressor(s) as effectively as possible.
During this stage your body tries to cope or adapt to the stressors by beginning a process of repairing any damage the stressor has caused. Your friends, family or co-workers may notice changes in you before you do so it is important to examine their feedback to make sure you do not reach overload.
