Ever stop to measure your stress level? You may not know that you’re stressed (or how stressed you actually are) without taking a careful look at what’s been going on in your life. It’s easy when you’re busy and your focus is on all of the tasks at hand or other people to dismiss or overlook your own stress.
Long-term stress can really take a toll on your body, though, and chronic stress can end up making you very ill or even shorten your life.
Take this quick stress test questionnaire to determine your own stress level, then visit our Stress and Stress relief section to find lots of articles on what stress really is and how to better manage yours.
