In today's fast-paced world, individuals encounter a multitude of stressors, ranging from professional demands and deadlines to interpersonal conflicts and personal struggles. These stressors, whether physical, physiological, or psychological in nature, can significantly impact one's overall well-being and quality of life. Of particular concern is psychological stress, which poses risks to both physical and mental health, as well as personal safety.

While a certain level of stress can be motivating and even beneficial, excessive or chronic stress can have detrimental effects on health, mood, productivity, and relationships. Recognizing the importance of addressing stress-related issues, Ayurveda offers a comprehensive approach to stress management that encompasses the balance of body, mind, and spirit. Ayurveda, often referred to as the science and art of appropriate living, emphasizes the importance of achieving longevity with optimal quality of life.
