How Stressed Am I?

Stress can come from a lot of different places. It can be acute and feel like a “flash in a pan” due to a specific event or incident. Or it can build up over time and lead to physical symptoms, mental health disorders, and burnout. Most of us know when we’re stressed, but it can be hard to pinpoint and understand how and why it’s happening.
