How much stress are you experiencing?

I found an article about the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale. Click Here! Its about the long term effects of stress and it also measures your current level of stress and determines its long term impact.

I scored 164 (moderate), but I actually don’t feel that stressed.

I think the items on the scale offer a good perspective. You may think you’re stressed but when you look at those top, high scoring items (death, divorce, separation, etc) you realize your life may not be that stressful :)

Today I have the windows open on a cloudy day and I’m enjoying the breeze while trying to start on some reading for school! I have a lot to do, but I’m not worried. I’m just going to enjoy the day.
