Abstract: Back groundBus drivers frequently report tension, mental overload, fatigue and sleeping problems. Bus drivers also have more frequent absences from work and of longer duration than workers in other occupations. A large proportion of the work absences are attributable to stress-related disorders such as digestive problems and anxiety and stress. AimThe aim of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness of relaxation technique in reducing stress among drivers. ObjectivesTo evaluate the effectiveness of relaxation technique in reducing stress among drivers. Methodology,. A total of 30 drivers were selected by using non probability convenience sampling method. Pretest was conducted and music therapy was given for 15 minutes each day for next five consecutive days. After that post test stress score was assessed after seven days. The data were analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics. ResultOut of 30 samples in pre test 14 (47 %) are suffering from moderate stress and 14 (47 %) are suffering from mild stress and 2 (6 %) are normal. Out of 30 samples 4 (13 %) are suffering from mild stress and 26 (87 %) are normal. The pre test mean value was 38.03 with 6.63 SD and post test mean value of 20.86 with 3.339 SD.
