Sometimes it even becomes the cause of problem. There is no one thing which gives us stress in particular. We can be stressed regarding various things like what’s happening in our personal life, our health, our relations, our family, our kids, the things happening in our professional life and work stress. Apart from this the budget passed every year is the greatest source of worry for a common man.
