Today we are going to continue our discussion on stress but before we really get into this, I think it is important that you take this brief stress survey to find out how much stress you really are under.
What I would like you to do is answer each of the following 5 questions and place the following numerical value to each of your answers.
If your answer to the question is ‘always’, answer with the number 4.
If your answer is ‘often’, answer with the number 3.
If your answer is ‘sometimes’, answer with the number 2.
And if your answer is ‘never’, answer with the number 1.
Here are the 5 questions:
1. Do you find yourself with no time to do the things you really enjoy?
2. Do you feel people expect too much from you?
3. Do you feel overwhelmed more often than not?
4. Do you fell exhausted at the end of the day?
5. Do you feel that there are not enough hours in the day to do what you need to do?
Now what I would like you to do is total up the 5 numbers you have written down.
If your total is 5 to 10, your stress level is low. If your total is 10 to 15, your stress level is moderate.
If your total is 15 to 20, your stress level is high.
If you are in the moderate to high stress level range, you need to be sure to visit us again next week as you are going to learn how stress really affects your health and what you can do to manage stress more effectively.
