Are you stressed?

Are you stressed?

Here's a little Stress Questionnaire that you can try for yourself. Of course, we are all different in how we experience stress, handle it, cope with it and manage it. There are no right and wrong answers and it can be small and the bigger things in life than cause us stress. 


Stress can affect our physical and mental health as well as impact our relationships, work, ability to sleep or relax, our appetite, our libido, our ability to focus, concentrate or be motivated and many other things.

Stress is a big deal and the quicker you addres it, the sooner you begin to reduce stress and manage any future stresors in a helpful, constructive way. Try the questionnaire below and if you need someone to talk to or are looking for some support with reducing and managing stress, get in touch with us - we are here to help, listen, encourage and support.

Best wishes, 

Alexandra
