Perceived Stress Test
Feeling overloaded? Exhausted? All-over-the-place? Feeling like your mind is frizzy, and your soul needs a massage? Welcome to stress. But there is still hope! Recent studies show that more often than not, it's the way we perceive life's inevitable "stressful" events that create anxiety, rather than the events themselves. And how stressed-out we feel on a day-to-day basis has a lot to do with the ways we navigate the bumps along the road.
The Perceived Stress Test doesn't measure how stressful your life is — it's about how stressful you think it is. And that may be the most important indicator of your overall stress level. You're brain is in charge, in other words— so take this quiz to find out how much of your stress is in your head, and what to do about it.
