Milestone Education Review (The Journal of Ideas on Educational & Social Transformation)

ISSN: 2278-2168

Respected Faculty/Scholar/Professor,

Milestone Education Review (The Journal of Ideas on Educational & Social Transformation) is an online peer-reviewed bi-annual journal of Milestone Education Society (Regd.) Pehowa (Kurukshetra). For us education refers to any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character, or physical ability of an individual. The role of education must be as an instrument of social change and social transformation. Social transformation refers to large scale of social change as in cultural reforms and transformations. The first occurs with the individual, the second with the social system. This journal offers an opportunity to all academicians including educationist, social-scientists, philosophers and social activities to share their views. Each issue contains about 100 pages. This is a special call for papers for Milestone Education Review, Year 04, No. 02 (October, 2013) issue.

Theme: Stress and Mental Health

Talking about stress has become part of normal everyday conversation. We might talk about being stressed by our partners, our children, our financial worries and, of course, our jobs. Most of us recognise the symptoms of stress as feeling anxious, worrying more than usual, not being able to concentrate, and not sleeping well. But we don't always take our feelings of stress that seriously, assuming either that its part and parcel of life or that it will pass. So understanding of stress is important for us in order to deal with it effectively .Stress is a normal physical response to events that make you feel threatened or upset your balance in some way. When you sense danger – whether it’s real or imagined – the body's defenses kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or-flight” reaction, or the stress response. The stress response is the body’s way of protecting you. When working properly, it helps you stay focused, energetic, and alert. In emergency situations, stress can save your life – giving you extra strength to defend yourself, and achieve success in any domain. So stress response also helps you rise to meet challenges. Stress is good when it is in appropriate proportion but stress beyond certain level may lead to various psychological, physical and cognitive problems such as body aches and pain, constipation, chest pains, rapid heartbeat, loss of sex drive, frequent cold, headaches, memory problems, inability to concentrate, anxiety, constant worrying, depression, general unhappiness, moodiness etc. which may further hamper one’s personal, social and occupational life or overall well-being of an individual

Therefore effective stress management is the key towards success and overall well-being. We therefore invite your papers on the following theme:

• Stress Management and Coping

• Stress and Well-being.

• Pressures and Stress.

• Stress at workplace in Public and private sector

• Personality and Stress

• Stress and Health Problems

Swami Vivekananda – the educationist par excellence, summed up the goal of education to be “Life Building, Man-making, character making, assimilation of ideas”. His contributions towards revitalizing education by highlighting the significance of value inculcation are of immense significance and need deeper introspection and wider deliberations.
