Evaluate Your Stress Index

Stress is part of being human. Eliminating all the stress in our lives or preventing stressful situations from arising in the future is impossible. However, stress management is essential for our physical and mental health.

A study by the American Psychological Association revealed that the three most common sources of stress for adults are work, money and health. And its not just adults who are feeling stressed. According to the Centre for Studies on Human Stress, children and the elderly are just as vulnerable and sometimes more vulnerable to the effects of stress.

Being stressed is an integral part of our lives, but surprisingly we are not always aware of it. Recognizing habits, attitudes and signs of stress that can alert us to problems is difficult because they have become familiar to us. The first step to managing stress is to assess the level of it in our lives.
