How Stressed Are You?

These are based on a list of common signs and symptoms of stress from the American Institute of Stress (AIS) Stress.org). Remember that stress affects each person differently and only a doctor can give you a correct diagnosis. I assume if you clicked this, you know you are stressed and are curious to see how much. Be honest with how your body reacts generally in stress and you'll find what you're here to find out. This is my first quiz though, so don't get your hopes up too much LOL.

Sometimes Stressed

Sometimes Stressed

You're stressed half the time and the other half probably like sleeping or something. Just trying to make it through as if it's just a bit of bad weather and it will go away. This can be dangerous to think and might make you more stressed. Don't over work yourself and remember to take care of yourself.

Often Stressed

Often Stressed

You're probably a young adult/student, I know the most stressed people are about between 13-25 years old. Don't work too hard and always make yourself a priority, you can't do well if you're so stressed, let yourself take a break once in awhile. Find something relaxing to do for you, like maybe exercise, watch something like comedy (laughing is the best medicine), or yoga. Up to you, but take it easy. Maybe take a vacation or see a doctor.

Dangerously Stressed

Just get help. You seriously need some relief from this horrible, horrible painful stress you're dealing with. SERIOUSLY. Like, I love you and you need to get some help for this. I wish I could help, but doctors know more of what they're doing. Take it easy and try to clear your mind enough to get some help. I love you.
