Stress Test – Self Quiz

Last updated March 27, 2021

Take this Stress Test to see what your overall level of stress has been over the last year based on the situations and circumstances you've experienced.

Everyone experiences stress. It is a normal part of our life experience. But sometimes the situations and circumstances we encounter are more challenging than normal, which stresses the body and mind.
