Stress is the body's response to many different situations or life events we get when we feel under pressure, overwhelmed or unable to cope. Although levels of stress have increased globally in the past few years, the conversation around stress is still growing.

Stress has been defined as the “Health Epidemic of the 21st Century” by the World Health Organization, since it represented a big burden for many people (1) and pandemic outbreak has further emphasized this condition. The panic for the health as well as the fear of future uncertainty had totally turned around many aspect of everyday life. Not to mention, the restrictive measures worsen the people emotional status leading to an increase of stress and anxiety at worldwide level. As a consequence, cognitive health market now is rapidly expanding and is projected to reach US$10.7 billion by 2025 (2).
