Abstract:

Stress refers to the perceived or actual threat on physical and/or psychological homeostasis of the human body [1]. Disrupted homeostasis elicits the so called “stress response”, meaning the activation of central and peripheral neuroendocrine mechanisms responsible for various adaptive responses and behaviors. PSS was originally developed as a 14-item scale that assess the perception of stressful experiences by asking the respondent to rate the frequency of his/her feelings and thoughts related to events and situations that occurred over the previous month. Stress mainly refers to the perceived or actual threat to the physical and/or psychological homeostasis of the human body. The stress-reduction approach based on mindfulness practices has recently enjoyed an explosion of interest from a variety of healthcare and epidemiological researchers. Disrupted homeostasis elicits the so-called “stress response”, meaning the activation of central and peripheral neuroendocrine mechanisms responsible for various adaptive responses and behaviors. The purpose of this study was to measure the level of perceived stress among the students of Post Graduation. The study used a convenience sample of female and male college students. A scale for measuring the perceived stress level was adopted. PSS assesses the perception of stressful experiences by asking the respondent to rate the frequency of his/her feelings and thoughts related to events and situations that occurred over the previous month to collect data from the respondents. The majority of the respondents agreed that they often perceived stress because of something that happened unexpectedly in the last month, they were unable to control the important things in their life, they were not confident enough to handle their problems or being unable to control irritations, etc. Students often perceived stress when things were out of their control or they found it difficult to pile the things up because of uncontrollable situations.
