How many items did you put a tick beside? Perhaps you need to sit and evaluate how stressed you are.

 

Are you happy in your relationships, is your job right for you, do you have a solid friendships to turn to? What changes can you make in the short term, what changes might you need to make for the long haul? Look carefully at where your stress comes from and maybe make some beginning changes there.
