Tension is a problem experienced any man in his everyday life. If a person is born in this world, then he is sure to experience this problem throughout his life in one way or the other.

What is Tension?

Tension is state of mind where you are mixed with over-anxiety, stress and fear. Tension can cause heavy damage to the human mind as well as the body.
