Interactive Tool: What Is Your Stress Level?
What does your score mean?
After you use this interactive tool, you will be better able to see how much stress life changes are causing you. Your score will appear as one of the following:
- You have low stress.
- You have mild stress.
- You have moderate stress.
- You have high stress.
If you have a moderate or high stress level, you are more likely to develop a stress-related illness in the near future.
As with all screening tools, the results of this tool are only an estimate. The way you deal with stress depends on several things. These include your ability to cope with change (resiliency), how significant life events are to you, and how much support you get from family and friends. There may also be events that cause you stress that are not included in this tool.
Your results can give you a rough measurement of your stress level due to life changes. If you have moderate or high amounts of stress in your life, consider what you can do to avoid adding more stress to your life and what you can do to cope with current stress.
