Stress analysis in wireless environment plays a vital role in everyday life. Monitoring of mental state with significant physiological changes is important, which can help to recognize the matter of anxiety. Particularly it is more important in wireless environment. GSR sensor is one of the various methods to detect the stress at a particular time in different position with various activities. In this paper, it has been considered three different activities like; normal, tension, and physical exercise with laying, sitting and standing activities and send the information in wireless environment. It has been observed that, GSR sensed data are varies in respect to contact surface area with body, environment and activities. Further the data can be sent through wireless mode to the destination point for analysis.
