Stress Survey

Are you Stressed Out?
Look back over the past 6 months. Have you been noticing changes in yourself or in the world around you? Think of your job, the family, and social situations.

Allow 30 seconds for each answer. Then assign it a number from 1 (for no or little change) to 5 (for a great deal of change) to designate the degree of change you perceive.

1 2 3 4 5
1. Do you tire more easily? Feel fatigued rather than energetic?
2. Are people annoying you by telling you "you don't look so good lately"?
3. Are you working harder and harder and accomplishing less and less?
4. Are you increasingly cynical and disenchanted?
5. Are you often invaded by a sadness you can't explain?
6. Are you forgetting? (appointments, deadlines, personal possessions)
7. Are you increasingly irritable? More short-tempered? More disappointed in the people around you?
8. Are you seeing close friends and family member less frequently?
9. Are you too busy to do even routine things like make phone calls or read reports or memos?
